New natural solution for stubborn yeast issues in dogs…

Yeasty dogs, listen up! I have five free samples of a fantastic new product for stubborn yeasty issues in dogs…

You get a lot of yeasty dogs in this line of work, usually dogs on high-carb foods for a long period of time. Yeast LOVES that sugar. Even with a careful switch to raw, it can be hard to shift.

Symptoms vary but a constant itching is a top one. Constantly at their ears with head shaking / rubbing is another. Skin too can change (greasy, scaly). And there’s usually a smell, often quite nasty (cheesy).

The problem is actually INSIDE the dog, the symptoms are outside. You can address the symptoms all you like but like putting a plaster on gangrene you are not addressing the issue. There are lots of things to consider with top of the list being remove ALL sources of sugar (yeast can only eat sugar, you starve it to death this way). There are a few natural cures in there you can try. Check out our article on yeast issues in dogs for more here.

TOP TIP from the seminar last week – plain apple cider vinegar is THE BEST for cleaning yeasty years BUT do not use the stuff with the mother in it (all the floaty bits). You don’t want to add sediment to the ear. Use the refined stuff. I have been using it religiously on Duds (Cocker) who is prone to a dodgy ear and bingo, I cleared it up.

One thing I am going to add to this article is the importance of canine probiotics. Yeast is a blooming of the wrong life inside the gut. Probiotics are recruits for the good guys while you make some dietary tweaks in the background. They are a must for this disease.

While all this is going on in the background, as you struggle to get them back in balance, even the natural vets can struggle to clear a topical yeast issue. There are more aggressive conventional treatments but, as you might expect, they come with a bit of baggage.

ECOSIN…a natural algae that eats yeast issues in dogs for breakfast…

ECOSIN is formulated by Bio Agens. It’s a natural product comes from the Czech Republic contains Pythium oligandrum. It’s something of an algae. Plants house this organism in and around their roots in the damp ground prevent yeast and fungus from eating them. Pythium is essentially a parasite of fungus, and we can take advantage of this. Applied topically, it eats fungus for breakfast.

The instructions are inside the box but I have two forms of it to give away today – effervescent tablets (dissolve one in lukewarm water, bathe the affected skin and allow to dry naturally. Repeat 2-3 times a week for two weeks) or oil (can be mixed with warm water OR applied directly with a cloth to badly affected areas). Don’t worry if they lick it off. Our guts (human or dog) are not a normal environment for Pythium, so it does cause disruption to our gut flora.

A yeast issue needs to have been confirmed by your vet in the past (to weed those that have not yet ruled out a food cause for their dog’s itch, which they do by properly conducting an exclusion diet).
