Anti-fungal shampoos are best for yeast infection in dogs.
May 3, 2011 - Learn what causes a dog yeast infection, how to spot yeast ..
I have always had my dogs on a raw meat diet with tripe as a supplement. It has kept my dogs healthy and happy. As for the yeast infection, I use a 50% ACV(organic, milky texture) and 50% water mixture and spray my dog 1X aday and I bathed her 2X a week with the best shampoo for irritated skin problems. I guess I cannot state the name but many places online sell it and it was originally created by NASA. I hope someone finds this helpful. :)
Yeast Infections in Dogs: I have a Boxer who suffers from yeast infections too. I have read most of the post about this issue and knowing how awful it is for your dog, I thought I would share my findings with the group. There is one product that will help your dog and it's not yogurt. However dont stop feeding the dog yogurt cause they love it. The only thing you can do is realize your dog will probably never get rid of this problem. Why I have no idea I have taken my pup to several Vets and they all give me that answer. So with that said the Shampoo called Malaseb is the only thing that will help. You will notice that your dog will sleep very good the night of their bath. However there are a few catches with this shampoo, one is you MUST leave the shampoo on them for 10 MIN. minimum. If your dog is a short hair dog like mine then put on just enough water to lather the shampoo on the sore place, even if your dog has long hair just try to to use more soap then water atleast for the first few times. What I have found the soap does it aids in numbing the itchy spot so that they dont want to scratch and bite at it. The enzymes in their siliva makes this problem worse. So after your dog has been given a bath, you must make sure you dry them very good that means inbetween the toes. (Just be carefull not to burn your dog with the hair dryer theres alot of people who dont know how to dry their dog safely the best way to do it is keep one hand on the dog then move the hair dryer back and forth on your dog keeping your hand under the spot where the dryer is blowing at that way you will feel the heat your dog feels and if your hand is hot you know that you need to move the hair dryer a little faster back and forth or back it up a little. Do the same to the feet so that you dont burn their little toes. You will have to use a towel as well to get their feet good and dry. If your dog is afraid of the sound of the blow dryer like my little dog, I have found by placing a towel loosely over their face making sure they can breathe then they are a little bit easier to handle.) Now that you have them all dry they will be all happy and sleep so well for the first and second night, however on the third night you will have to do it all over again. Note if the problem area is only on their feet you can get a bucket of water and just do their feet but you must make sure the area is good and dry. Also for a lot of dogs Wheat may be another source of the problem so check your dog food for wheat. Then try to get them another brand of dog food to see how it works out, this will take a few weeks to do, since you will want to change over your dog food slowly so that you dont give them a tummy ache. Keep in mind that dog treats are a main source of wheat. Good luck to all me and my pup feel your itching!

Chronically Itchy or Smelly Dog? It Could Be Yeast Infections
To conclude Yeast infection if left unnoticed may elevate to severe health problems inflicting incredulous pain to your faithful buddy. Hence, it is paramount to treat the yeast infection as soon as it is observed. Keep a check for the underlying symptoms of yeast infection and choose the best shampoo to treat your dog accordingly. Tend to your dog at the time when it yearns for you the most. Afterall a friend is need is a friend indeed.All these different brands of dogfood sound wonderful but checking out the prices, I cannot afford any of them, especially if trial and error is involved. What if I cooked beef liver or chicken thighs…. perhaps throw in green beans or broccoli? I’ve been mixing in plain yogurt with his regular food (I mix canned Alpo sliced beef with either Alpo dry or Pedigree dry). It’s pretty obvious that store brand are not the best but it’s what I can afford for my yeasty dog. Antifugal shampoo is the best? I know oatmeal only feeds the yeast so I won’t use that. I need to find a new vet as the one I am using has not been very helpful.
