Wondering if your dog has a yeast infection? Yeast infections can affect both the skin and ears of dogs. See if your dog exhibits any of the following symptoms.
Yeast Infection in Dogs Ears
If your dog has chronic ear infections, he may be suffering from a yeast infection of the ears. Typically, when dogs have an ear infection, you will notice them scratching at their ears and tilting their head. When yeast is present, there is usually a wax residue and sometimes scabbing around the ear opening.
Yeast infections of the ear are often caused by water trapped in the ear canal, allergens --both food and environmental. This type of infection can be a sign of underlying immune problems so it’s important to get your pet checked out by a veterinary professional.
Dog Skin Yeast Infection
When a dog has a skin yeast infection, the most obvious sign is constant licking. The dog will lick its skin wherever the yeast is present, which is commonly on the paws, armpits and genitals. Beyond licking, there are other symptoms of a dog skin yeast infection to look out for:
Foul odor even after bathing the dog
Discoloration/darkening of the skin and fur
Redness of the skin
Chewing on paws
Itching and scratching
Save on Treatments for Yeast Infections in Dogs
Put an end to your dog’s licking and discomfort once and for all. Unlike some ailments, a yeast infection in dogs can be treated by changing their diet and using a yeast killing formula like K9 Yeast Defense. This product is proven to get rid of overgrown yeast quickly and safely.
With the K9 Yeast Defense Package you’ll get two great products in one – K9 Yeast Defense + the Power Probiotic. Both products are veterinary-approved for fighting yeast.
Wondering why your dog won't stop licking and licking? Dogs will lick and chew on their paws for example because of a dog yeast infection on the paws. When they lick the paws, yeast grows creating an odor and staining of the fur. The constant saliva on the skin can darken the skin and fur color, even turn the skin black. This creates a moist, yeasty area that can have a terrible odor.
K9 Yeast Defense is terrific for dogs licking, chronic ear infections, genital licking and skin problems! Is your dog constantly licking at the groin and genital area? Is your dog licking his paws, scratching at the ears or itching and chewing at the armpits? Does your dog have an odor even after a bath? Doggie odor, a dog with constant licking and ear infections can all be signs of a yeast overgrowth.
What are the symptoms of yeast overgrowth in dogs? Typically dogs have chronic skin infections, redness, chewing on paws, dog yeast infection on the paws, doggie odor, chronic ear infections, genital licking and/or have been diagnosed with yeast infections inbetween the toes, groin, ears or under armpits. Dogs will lick and lick creating a smelly, moist hot spot making it impossible for the areas to heal and dry out. If your veterinarian has ever diagnosed yeast before or your pet has taken prednisone and/or antibiotics, this will lead to yeast overgrowth because the good bacteria which fight yeast are killed by the medications.
Dog licking is due to itchiness and irritation from the INSIDE. While topical lotions and shampoos will help to treat sores and skin infections, in order to stop the need to lick and chew, you must control the itching and discomfort that is causing the licking in the first place. What creates yeast overgrowth and a dogs licking constantly? First and foremost, allergies---both food and environmental. Also, the type of food---too many carbohydrates, even in a "hypoallergenic" diet can cause yeast overgrowth. A history of taking antibiotics or steroids will also create a friendly environment for yeast to grow, promoting your dog to lick and lick.
To stop your dog's constant licking, you need to change the diet AND use the K9 Yeast Defense Package. You will be amazed how much relief this simple formula can do. The K9 Yeast Defense kills off the yeast quickly while the Power Probiotic replenishes your pet's gastrointestinal tract with good bacteria which are needed for a healthy immune system. For best results, we recommend using Notatum along with the two products as it prevents the possibility of a bacterial overgrowth and calms down the inflammation from the allergic response. Since most of the time, pets have BOTH a yeast overgrowth and a bacterial overgrowth, it's really important to use both an antifungal AND an antibacterial product such as Notatum or Silver Immune Support For Pets. RECOMMENDED FOR BEST RESULTS
K9 Yeast Defense + Power Probiotic + Notatum or Quentans (capsules or drops depending upon your dog's size)
Please order the Notatum or Quentans separately along with K9 Yeast Defense + Power Probiotic.
fights bacterial infections. This is very important when using any
yeast detoxification formula, but especially if your dog is just
finishing antibiotics. If you just use K9 Yeast Defense and Power
Probiotic, without NotaSAN, there is a possibility that as the yeast
dies off, your dog may get a bacterial infection. Using all three
products in combination is the best way to ensure your dog will not
getting a recurring bacterial or yeast infection. The NotasAN helps relieve the symptoms associated with yeast die-off. If your dog is getting red bumps, hot spots and skin infections, use NotaSAN AND QuentaSAN
Help For Dogs With Chronic Yeast Infections and Allergy Symptoms
Some dogs have severe allergies and have been on rounds of antibiotics. While this can create an environment for yeast to thrive, and using K9 Yeast will definitely help, but there is still the underlying allergy situation that has to be addressed. Changing the diet is a first step so please see our articles about food allergies. But, allergies can often be a chronic condition, sometimes seasonal but many times, just part of your pet's genetics. So, while you control the yeast using K9 Yeast Defense and Power Probiotic, you also need to control the dog's immune system and allergic response that is helping the yeast to grow. Fortunately, through years of experience, we have found formulas that can help. First, as mentioned above, it is essential to use Notatum OR NotaSAN + QuentaSAN(ideal) to help support your dog's immune system during allergy season (not needed indefinitely). In addition, AllerEaze and/or Proaller and Amazing Omegas are all proven, time-tested products to use to help control allergies, itching, redness, hot spots, chewing, licking, etc We have tremendous success with our products, even with some of the most discouraging patients. Dogs with chronic yeast and allergies can improve, it just takes a little patience, good products and the right diet.
Special Note About Ear Infections When pets have chronic ear infections, there is usually an underlying allergy problem. Generally, the pet is allergic to the food you are feeding. Include what you are feeding on the order form at checkout and Pet Nutritionist Susan Davis will provide a free diet suggestion on the packing slip that comes with your order.
Easy to use--just sprinkle in your pet's food. Please note: Most pets that have yeast have bacterial overgrowth too and have been put on antibiotics only to develop yeast. If you just use the K9 Yeast Defense without addressing the bacterial overgrowth, the pet will be out of balance. Using Notatum supports your pet's immune health during and after the use of antbiotics and, when combined with the yeast formulas, helps rebalance your pet's entire immune system. It is possible, if you use only antifungals, for the pet to then get a bacterial infection. Please order the Complete Package along with Notatum for your pet's well being.
K9 Yeast Defense must be used along with Power Probiotic to ensure your pet's healthy recovery. The K9 Yeast Defense kills the yeast overgrowth while Power Probiotic replenishes good bacteria to restore your pet's healthy immune function.

Why Is K9 Yeast Defense sold as a package with Power Probiotic?
If your pet is diagnosed with yeast in the skin, paws, ears, etc, there is a natural tendency to want to eradicate the yeast. But, some yeast is a natural part of our intestinal flora that keeps other bacteria and parasites in balance. Yeast is typically a "secondary invader" meaning that bad bacteria is usually first to arrive, along with the yeast. That is why your veterinarian might prescribe a prescription medication for yeast such as Ketoconazole at the same time as an antibiotic.
In your pet's best interest, K9 Yeast Defense must be used properly and safely to help rebalance your pet's intestinal flora. We require that the K9 Yeast Defense is used with a powerful and effective probiotic. This helps to avoid the risk of your pet developing a bacterial infection while you are killing off the yeast. If your pet has had any type of yeast infection, ear infection, skin problems or allergies, by far the BEST results occur when the K9 Yeast Defense is used along with BOTH Power Probiotic and Notatum which fights bacterial overgrowth.
The Power Probiotic is an easy product to administer and is a powerful mult-strain formula. However, if you prefer to use an alternate probiotic, please indicate the name and dosage of the formula you are using on the order form when purchasing this product. K9 Yeast must be used in conjunction with a probiotic.

The Pet Arthritis Package includes 3 products: Amazing Arthrosoothe, Amazing Omegas and Curcumin for Pets
ArthroSoothe is the most comprehensive arthritis product available. Amazing Arthrosoothe contains a combination of herbs and nutrients including Boswelia, Green Lipped Mussel, Glucsoamine, Collagen and Resveratrol, blended together in a formula that helps get pets moving. Just using glucosamine by itself or simple formulas that contain glucosamine/chondroitin aren't going to be as beneficial. There is no other product like it!
Simply the best fish oil available--purity and potency guaranteed! Excellent for joint support, skin and coat and overall good health. We have received testimonial after testimonial from pet owners who used other omega products before telling us about pets getting the softest, most lustrous coats with Amazing Omegas in just a few weeks! Amazing Omegas contains the highest quality, purest fish oil available on the market. This wonderful oil packs in 1500 mg Omega 3 fatty acids in just 1 teaspoon---this is 3-4x the strength of most pet omegas! And what makes this powerful supplement even better is that it is purified with the highest standards (third party quality control tested) so that the usual aftertaste is eliminated. Why do we and our pets get an aftertaste and/or burping following ingestion of most other fish oils? This is because of the toxins that remain in the oil. Here is how the label reads on Ask Ariel's Amazing Omegas For Pets "This fish oil has not been chemically modified and hence supplies the Omega-3 fatty acids the way nature provides them. It is processed without solvents and is completely free of chemicals such as hexane. Third party testing also GUARANTEES that it is free of pesticides, PCBs, Dioxin and heavy metals including mercury."
Why is this so important? Well, so many of us are using fish oils with the best of intentions but when we use these products, if they aren't purified, they may be giving you and your pets some extra toxins along with the benefits. This is NOT the case with Amazing Omegas--it is simply the best delivering therapeutically high levels of Omegas without the toxins!
for Dogs and Cats can your pet fast pain relief. Curcumin Complex
(also known as turmeric) for Pets is a scientifically proven natural
anti-inflammatory for pets. Curcumin for Pets
is a powerful anti-inflammatory that is backed by extensive research.
Great for cats and dogs. Easy to administer and economical.
C3 Curcumin Complex is a patented, unique composition of three bioactive, health-promoting curcuminoids: Curcumin, Bisdemethoxy curcumin, and Demethoxy curcumin. These are the strongest, most protective and best-researched constituents of the herb turmeric. Multiple studies show that this scientifically-extracted combination not only scavenges and neutralizes harmful existing free radicals; it also prevents their formation in the first place.These interactive antioxidants are proven to protect and strengthen vulnerable organs such as the colon, liver and heart. In addition, these standardized substances give the body powerful, natural tools to better control and diminish systemic inflammation. The naturally occurring turmeric root powder contains only 5-7% curcumin, while the C3 Curcumin Complex extract is concentrated to contain 95% curcuminoids, among which Curcumin represents the majority, 70% of the total extract. This means supplementing C3 Curcumin Complex would be far more therapeutic than simply adding turmeric to our foods. The crystalline structure of curcumin renders it difficult to absorb in the GI tract, similar to CoQ10. Designs for Health added lecithin, a powerful emulsifier, to enhance absorption; and bioavailability.
Curcumin shows excellent safety. It has been demonstrated to be safe in six human trials and has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity. Excessive inflammation is a common risk factor for disease occurrence and progression. Inflammation may lead to joint tissue destruction, cancer, cardiovascular events, insulin resistance/diabetes and brain/liver/kidney degenerative diseases. Curcumin was shown to reduce inflammation, whether acute or chronic, caused by physical injury, joint wear and tear (as in osteoarthritis), chronic infections or inadequate antioxidant protection.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Dogs
Many things can contribute to inflammatory bowel disease in dogs. However it can be hard to pinpoint any one cause or combination of causes that leads to IBD. Common causes include:
All dogs are susceptible to getting IBD, but the breeds that are most commonly diagnosed are German shepherds, shar-peis, soft-coated wheaten terriers and basenjis.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Cats
If a cat is showing symptoms that include vomiting, diarrhea and malabsorption, the kitty could have inflammatory bowel disease. If left untreated, inflammatory bowel disease in cats can lead to more serious health problems such as intestinal lymphoma -- cancer.
IBD in felines is a reaction to food, parasite antigens or bacteria in the gastrointestinal region. There are three types of IBD in cats: Lymphocytic-Plasmacytic Enterocolitis, Eosinophilic Enterocolitis and Granulomatous (Regional) Enteritis.
