Does your dog have a nacho, cheesy, doggie odour? Does he scratch constantly?  


It may be excessive yeast! Your veterinarian can do a skin scraping to confirm the presence of too much yeast.


What causes yeast overgrowth?


Yeast thrives in damp, warm places like the armpits and folds and wrinkles on the face and body. A dog that swims or gets wet often but has not been dried properly may be more prone to a yeast problem.


A diet high in sugars and carbohydrates can also contribute to a yeast overgrowth.


Dogs that are immune compromised from allergies, or frequent use of steroids and antibiotics will also be more likely to have excessive amounts of yeast.


Topical Treatment


Frequent bathing with a low PH shampoo containing TeaEarth Bath Shampoo Tree Oil or Peppermint is essential. "Earthbath" shampoo offers both varieties. DO NOT use an oatmeal-based shampoo, as it will act as a topical food source for yeast.


After your pet's bath, rinse with a gallon of water mixed with 20 drops of pure peppermint essential oil (available in a health food store). DO NOT RINSE this off. Simply towel dry. Your pet will smell marvelous!


The above mix can also be used as a foot soak, or a cleanser for creases etc. For itchy feet, just dunk the paws in the peppermint solution and dry. No rinsing necessary.


This rinse can also be used after swimming when you cannot immediately bathe your dog. Add about 20 drops of grapefruit seed extract to this mix to kill the bacteria found in river water. Use in a spray bottle and keep it in your car.


Remember to always towel dry your pet thoroughly after bathing and swimming.


Dark brown earwax in the ears is often yeast and may lead to ear infections. Some pets require daily cleaning of ears with an anti-yeast product like "Carnivora Gentian Ear Cleaner".

Anti-Yeast Diet


Remove sugar and carbs in all their forms from your pet's diet. This includes, but is not limited to: sweet potatoes, white potatoes, carrots, any fruit, rice, oats, wheat, honey, molasses, etc.


Try instead raw foods with little or no vegetable and fruit content like "Carnivora" or "Spring Meadows". "Arusha" has several veggie mixes to choose from if you would prefer to add veg to the diet.


Grain-free dry foods are often very high in potato content. Try instead a grain free food like "Nature's Variety - Limited Ingredient Diets" that are made with tapioca, or "Nature's Logic", which is made with millet.




Mercola ProbioticsFrequent use of antibiotics catastrophically reduces the number of good bacteria present in your dog's gut. Good bacteria are VERY important for keeping yeast growth in check. Therefore, adding a probiotic like "Mercola Pet Probiotic" is an essential part of your supplementation regime.


Internal use of grapefruit seed extract, oil of oregano, or small amounts of garlic can also be affective for inhibiting yeast growth.

CatEver wonder where that purr sound come from? Signals from the brain rapidly vibrate muscles so that they act like a valve for air flowing past the voice box. So when air flows past the voice box during both inhalation and exhalation, the purr noise is made, making it sound continuous!
