Yeast infection in dog

Dr Wilson, Our 7 yr old Scottish Terrier has a Yeast infection on his chest, neck, front legs, and on paws. I can smell the yeast on him. We have tried Derma-IonX over and over and over for 9 months and no results. He eats a raw diet and we add some organic green beens to his meal for one feeding, and then we add some organic peas for the 2nd feeding. We have tried Coconut Oil on his skin but the fungus is still their. We hate to see him suffer with itching and scratching and the smell. Tonight I tried mixing Apple Cider Vinegar with water in a small spray bottle and sprayed his neck and chest. You can really smell the ACV in the mixture and I need to know if that will work as well as the coconut oil. What is the best way to get rid of the yeast and fungus on his chest and front legs and front paws and on his neck? The yeast seems to be attracted to and feed off of a warm area on his skin. From his tummy down to his tail there is no visible fungus or yeast, only on his chest, neck, and front legs and paws. We hate to witness the irritation it gives him and we do not trust any more Western Medicine Vets as all they do is give Antibiotics which I understand feeds the Yeast, and they want to give Steroid shots and we are against that as both cause side affects and that is not good. I am also starting to add 1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in his water each day to try and heal him from the inside out, and spray some ACV on his affected areas topically as well. Can you suggest anything else at this time and are we doing everything right so far? If one method does not work we do research and try another until we solve the problem. Please let us know what you suggest as well. We also give him a ProBiotic each day to chew on ( by Vetionx) and we also give him 2 ozs of Goats Milk by a company called "Answers". We have also tried a Kangaroo + Lentil kibble last week. This was suggested by a Dog dermatologist. They told us to give him this kibble only for 90 days and don't give him anything else but we have not started that feeding program as of yet. I am also told that mixing 50% water and 50% white vinegar will help get rid of yeast and you can apply it topically. Please let me know what you suggest as we are beside ourselves and want to give our Scottish Terrier the best options possible as he is like a little boy to us and we love him so much. Thank You, Rick and Arlene (my Mom)

Dog has chronic ear infection

My 8 year old female lab has chronic ear infections. She was on yeast/fungal pills and ear drops for about 6 months. Her paws and chin cleared up, but now she licks her groin area frequently. I clean her ears out 2 times a week with trizultra keto sol, I do hear the suctioning nose when I clean them. I have put her on a limited ingredient dog food with duck and potato. Nothing seems to be clearing up the ear infection. She is getting them one right after another. Is there anything else I could do to make her feel better and get her over the ear infections. She recently, within the last 2 weeks, has started limping with her front paws again. Last time we put her on Arthro-IonX and it cleared up. It hasn't come back until now for 3 years. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Resistant Staph & MRSA infections in Dogs

My 10 year old Shi Tzu (Pip) underwent a complicated operation in 2012 for adrenal carcinoma (he lost a kidney in the process) and since then he has had numerous skin infections every few weeks, including MRSA. He has been given so many antibiotics (he currently has another staph infection and is on Zeniquin -50 mg daily). I don't feel that his little body can fight any more of these infections an he seems to be getting weak now. I feed him nothing but wholesome organic human food and supplements. I love this little dog so much and am full of anxiety and despair because I can't cure him of these resistant infections. Nothing seems to help. My holistic vet has given him colloidal silver drops and sulfur drops, but still he suffers. Is there anything you can suggest? Thank you for any advice.

Lab has very dry skin & front right elbow infection

My male chocolate lab, almost 7 yrs old, is constantly having trouble with excessive dry skin & infections at least 1x a month in his right front leg elbow. Is now on antibiotic & probiotic. Vet is talking about operating on his right elbow because he is having so often. I think that my dog is just upset because of my disabilities & I hurt all the time. He takes care of me. I don't want him to have problems all the time. I want him to feel well & get well too. He is currently on Petway dry food & takes 1 mg of thyroid which makes it up to normal. I don't know what to feed him anymore as giving him Wellactin for skin (very small amount) gives him worse stools than soft serve ice cream. What should I do? I need help here. He basically is my service dog & takes care of me & tells me what time it is to rest, take meds, etc. I want him to get better. Can you help me?

My dog has either a yeast or bacterial infection in their skin

My rough coat collie broke out all over his body with red swollen crusty patches. He was put on cephlaxin to help for two weeks. Vet wants to keep him on for another 2 weeks but I don't want to continue with antibiotics. They did skin samples, and it was not a fungus. It is either yeast or bacterial they said. It is getting better but hair is dry and his skin is scaly. I am interested in your product and your thoughts about Wallace's condition. He is a beautiful rough coat collie and very sensitive to meds. Thanks Francie

Will Promaxol help my dogs?

I have two questions. One: I'm in a position to buy the 32oz bottle. Based on the dosage my two Malamutes get, that would be about a 4 month supply. Would the product go bad before then? Two: My male appears to have an anal gland infection. He shows a great deal of swelling when he has a movement (it disappears afterwards). His stool also has a flat side to it on one side (the side of the gland located at 8 o'clock). This is the same side that swells. I'm thinking he has an infection back there because it seems to come and go. He also occasionally licks there alot, tucks his tail most of the time, and once in awhile he "leaks" a brownish-yellow substance. So, the second question is: I have found a homeopathic antibiotic alternative (Vibactra)and wondered if you had any experience with it. Thank you for your time. -David-

My dogs ears are smelly

Hi, we have a 10 year old female yellow lab and for pretty much all her life. She  does not like us lifting her ear flap or basically doing anything with her ears. I know there is a lot of product out there to help clean them for dogs that let you touch their ears or put something in their ears, but can you suggest any product that she can take orally that will help with her ears. (Being a lab no problem giving her stuff orally!) I have switched her to a grain free food and the redness in her ears has cleared up, but they still smell and she shakes her head a lot. I read that we could put olive oil in her ear, but she just goes absolutely nuts when you do anything to her ears. Thanks for your help! I have been using Arthro-IonX for a few years now for her and it has helped her tremendously with her hind leg since she hurt it. We avoided having to go through the trauma and high expense of an operation on her just from using this miracle product! Thank you! -Diane-

Dachshund has Bacterial Yeast Infection

My vet said my dachshund has a bacterial yeast problem because of the elephant skin under her arms and patches where skin is coming off in hairy patches. I've tried changing her diet to grainfree and medicated shampoo from the vet plus medication. Would you recommend your shampoo for her? I already use the Arthro-IonX for our dog with hip problems and it is doing wonders. Thank you for your input and anything you could recommend. -Phyllis-

Dog has infected toe, how to treat it?

My Goldie, Caileig, is nearly 8 and is usually very healthy. She is naturally reared so no dry food. A couple of weeks ago she got an infected rear back fourth toe. I went to the vet and he subscribed anti-biotics and anti-inflammitory and said to discontinue if she vomited. I did not want to give them so have been bathing it in salt water putting calanudula cream on it.  At the check today the vet said it has healed but recomended a antifungal shampoo to douch it in twice a day for a few months. I am not comfortable with this can you suggest an alternative? I hope to take her to the sea for a swim tomorrow. Thank you for your help. Regards -Bronte-
