Have tried everything for yeast and feet...need additional suggestions
So I've done a search but have found nothing any diferent than what i am doing/what I've done so.....
My 6.5 year old Golden, Karma has had yeast issues forever. About three years ado, I figured out yeast was her issue.....here is what I have done/learned so far....
Brewer's yeast is BAD....I stopped giving it to all 4 of my dogs, and that is when I figured out Karma's problem was yeast (persistent ear infections, balding feet)
Once I stopped the brewer's yeast 3 years ago, she has only had one yeast ear infection in the last 3.5 years, and all the hair grew back on her feet, but for the last 3 years..
Pads break and sometimes fall off and bleed...
I have tried both 50/50 raw apple cider vinegar (1.5 yrs ago) AND Nzymes (for the last year)....her current condition:
3 of four paws are stained with that brown stuff in-between and some pads are cracked/bleeding...
This breaks my heart!!!
She loves the snow right now, but does not stay out long because her feet are sensitive....
Today I washed her feet really well with SulfOxyDex, and rubbed her feet with 50/50 coconut oil and essential oils (rosemary....tea tree, which have anti fungal properties)
She also has a stained butt, so obviously the Nzymes are not getting rid of her systemic yeast issues (and I switched her to one of the recommended foods a few years ago and she gets no treats other than a rare Hockey puck Wysong "Dream Treat".....
Any suggestions are welcome!
