K9 Yeast Defense
What Is K9 Yeast Defense?
K9 Yeast Defense is a natural blend of antifungal herbal ingredients scientifically proven to act as a dog yeast infection home remedy.
Yeast is a natural part of our intestinal flora, and it keeps other bacteria and parasites in balance. However, antibiotic use, allergies, poor digestion and a diet high in starchy carbohydrates can create a chronic yeast overgrowth. This leads to the common symptoms of yeast, such as licking at the groin, chronic ear infections, doggie odor (even after a bath), ear scratching, a yeasty smell on the paws and skin problems.
Yeast is typically a "secondary invader," meaning that bad bacteria is usually first to arrive, along with the yeast. Using K9 Yeast Defense along with Power Probiotic and NotaSAN can control the yeast, replenish the friendly bacteria and rebalance intestinal bacteria, improving symptoms and your pet's overall immune system. If you're struggling with yeast infections in dogs, treatment can be as easy as administering these three supplements according to your dogs weight.
It's essential to use Power Probiotic along with K9 Yeast Defense, as K9 Yeast Defense kills off the yeast overgrowth quickly while Power Probiotic replenishes your pet's gastrointestinal tract with good bacteria that are needed to restore your dog's healthy immune function. Power Probiotic is the best probiotic for dogs with yeast infections.
Dog Yeast Infection Symptoms
What are the symptoms of yeast overgrowth in dogs? Typically dogs have chronic skin infections (pyoderma), skin redness, dog yeast infection on the paws, doggie odor, chronic ear infections, thickened skin (elephant skin) and hyperpigmentation (darkened skin), and they may chew on their paws, lick their genitals, and have been diagnosed with yeast infections in the groin, in the ears, in between the toes or under the armpits. Yeast overgrowth releases toxins into the body, and those toxins need somewhere to go. They are pushed to the surface and filtered out through the skin, especially through the feet and ears. Yeast dermatitis is often misdiagnosed as allergies. Dogs will lick and lick, creating a smelly, moist hot spot, which makes it impossible for the areas to heal and dry out. Yeast thrives in hot, humid environments. 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 that fight yeast are killed by the medications. That is why your veterinarian might prescribe a prescription medication for yeast when he or she prescribes an antibiotic.

Treat Your Dog's Yeast Infection Naturally With a Veterinarian-Approved Home Remedy: K9 Yeast Defense
What kills yeast on a dog's skin? A combination of an antifungal for dogs, such as our K9 Yeast Defense, paired with a probiotic to restore the healthy gut flora. These two products will put an end to your dog's licking, chronic ear infections, doggie odor and chewing at the groin once and for all. With the K9 Yeast Defense Package, you'll get two great products in one package - K9 Yeast Defense + Power Probiotic. Both products are veterinarian-approved for controlling yeast overgrowth and dog yeast infection symptoms; the combo is the perfect dog skin yeast infection treatment.
Dog itchy and smelly skin, or an increase in your dog licking itself, is due to itchiness and irritation from the INSIDE. Yeast overgrowth can present as an inflammatory skin condition. 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 problem in the first place.
- Yeast Infections in Dog's Ears
- Scratching at itchy ears
- Tilting its head
- Chronic ear infections
- Wax residue and/or scabbing at the ear opening
What creates yeast overgrowth and a dog’s need to lick 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. Antibiotics or steroids will also create a friendly environment for yeast to grow, prompting your dog to lick and lick. When searching for dog licking paws remedies, it is important to address the causes, not just the symptoms, for long-term improvement.
To stop your dog's constant licking, you need to change its diet AND use the K9 Yeast Defense Package.

RECOMMENDED FOR BEST RESULTS
K9 Yeast Defense + Power Probiotic + NotaSAN (capsules or drops depending upon your dog's size)
Please order the NotaSAN separately along with K9 Yeast Defense + Power Probiotic.
NotaSAN 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 get a recurring bacterial or yeast infection. The NotaSAN helps relieve the symptoms associated with yeast die-off.
Why is K9 Yeast Defense sold as a package with Power Probiotic?
K9 Yeast Defense must be used properly and safely to help rebalance your pet's intestinal flora. We require that 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 K9 Yeast Defense is used along with BOTH Power Probiotic and NotaSAN, which fights bacterial overgrowth, as the ultimate natural dog yeast infection treatment.
Power Probiotic is easy to administer and is a powerful multi-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 K9 Yeast Defense. K9 Yeast Defense must be used in conjunction with a probiotic for the best results.
K9 Yeast Defense and Power Probiotic are both easy to use — just sprinkle in your pet's food. Please note: Most pets that have yeast also have bacterial overgrowth and have been put on antibiotics only to develop yeast. If you just use K9 Yeast Defense without addressing the bacterial overgrowth, the pet will be out of balance. Using NotaSAN supports your pet's immune health during and after the use of antibiotics 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. For the best dog yeast infection treatment, please order the Complete Package along with NotaSAN for your pet's well-being.
K9 Yeast Defense may be purchased by itself, but it is essential to use a powerful, multi-strain probiotic at the same time for best results. Just killing off yeast without replenishing the beneficial bacteria will not be nearly as effective.
“I want to let you know how great Dakota, our Golden Retriever that we rescued, is doing. When we got him, he had bad ear infections that he had for months, and his skin was so black in the armpit and groin areas that we thought it was ground in dirt. He also had acid reflux and would bring up bile several times a day. It has taken several months, but the blackened skin (from yeast) is almost back to normal thanks to K9 Yeast Defense. I wish we had taken “before” pictures of his skin because the difference is remarkable. And, for his acid reflux, we started using your supplements (Power Probiotic, K9 Digestive Enzymes, Gastro ULC and Soothing Digestive Relief). We used to give him Pepcid, but we have been able to slowly wean him off. I can’t forget to mention using your food recommendations. His ears didn’t start to clear up until we got him eating food that he could tolerate. Thank you so much for your supplements and all your help. Dakota is a much happier dog thanks to you!"
Help for Dogs With Chronic Yeast Infections and Allergy Symptoms
Some dogs have severe allergies and have been on rounds of antibiotics. This can create an environment for yeast to thrive. Using K9 Yeast Defense will definitely help, but there is still the underlying allergy situation that has to be addressed. Changing the diet is the first step, so please see our articles about food allergies. However, 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 the 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 NotaSAN 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 that help control allergies, itching, redness, hot spots, chewing, licking, etc. We have tremendous success with our products, even with some of the most challenging patients. Dogs with chronic yeast and allergies can improve; it just takes a little patience, good products and the right diet.

Yeast Infections in the Ear
Yeast infections in the ear can become a chronic problem for dogs. If you notice yourself thinking “my dogs ears stink,” this can be an early indicator that a yeast infection in the ears is present. When a dog has a yeast infection in the ear, there may be a distinctive blackish oozing discharge, odor and debris in the ear. Dogs may also display head shaking, redness or excessive scratching of the ear. Dogs can get ear infections from yeast overgrowth, hypothyroidism, and food and environmental allergies. Dog ear infections are painful, and the dog may have a terrible odor. Left untreated, ear infections can lead to permanent deafness. If you notice your dog displaying any of these symptoms, please take it to the veterinarian. The combination of K9 Yeast Defense, Power Probiotic and NotaSAN is an excellent dog ear yeast infection home remedy when it comes to helping prevent and control chronic ear infections and odor.

Why does my dog constantly lick its paws?
Yeast overgrowth is more common in dogs with allergies. When allergies and yeast overgrowth are combined, they can cause doggie odor, constant licking at the paws and genital area, scooting and ear infections. K9 Yeast Defense is an all-natural herbal remedy that kills off the yeast overgrowth to help stop the itching and constant licking. One of the best dog licking paws remedies is a combination of K9 Yeast Defense and our AllerEaze supplement. K9 Yeast Defense works best when used in conjunction with AllerEaze to help relieve the allergic response.
Why does my dog smell yeasty?
Allergies, hormonal imbalances, fungi and parasites can lead to yeast overgrowth on your dog’s skin. This often results in an unpleasant cheesy smell. Topical sprays and shampoos may temporarily mask the odor, but the candida yeast needs to be treated from the inside out. K9 Yeast Defense, when used in conjunction with Power Probiotic and diet changes, will help rebalance your pet's intestinal flora. The addition of a powerful and effective probiotic helps to avoid the risk of your pet developing a bacterial infection while you are killing off the yeast.
Can coconut oil treat a yeast infection in dogs?
Caprylic acid is derived from coconut oil. It is a naturally occurring fatty acid that has been proven to be an effective antifungal compound that kills candida yeast. K9 Yeast Defense combines caprylic acid with pau d’arco and oregano oil to optimize its antifungal and immune-boosting properties. Pau d’arco and oregano are herbs that have been widely researched for their antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
How do dogs get yeast ear infections?
Ear infections are a common canine health problem, and they can be caused by allergies, yeast, ear mites or bacteria. Fungal yeast organisms are normally on the skin and in the ears. If the ear or ear canal becomes inflamed, the yeast can overgrow and create a distinctive blackish oozing discharge and a pungent odor. Your dog may also display head shaking, redness or excessive scratching of the ear. The combination of K9 Yeast Defense, Power Probiotic and NotaSAN is an excellent dog ear yeast infection home remedy to help prevent and control chronic ear infections and odor.
What causes a dog to get a yeast infection?
A healthy balance of good bacteria and other microorganisms in your dog's microbiome (the ecosystem of microorganisms in your dog's gut) is vital for your pet's health. The microorganisms in your dog's microbiome form a protective barrier in your dog's intestinal tract that can protect it from harmful invaders such as bad bacteria (e.g., E. coli), fungi (yeast) and viruses. Sugar (found in starchy carbohydrate dog foods and treats) feeds these pathogens, while antibiotics and steroids can kill off your dog's friendly bacteria, thus weakening your dog's immune system. This can set up an opportunity for yeast, bad bacteria and other pathogens to overgrow. When yeast overgrowth occurs, symptoms such as constant licking and scratching, smelly ears, hot spots and itchy paws occur. Yeast thrives in warm, moist environments and is most common in the armpits, groin and ears and between the toes. Skin yeast infections are generally caused by a high-carbohydrate diet, allergies or antibiotic use. All these factors can lead to your dog’s itchy and smelly skin. By using K9 Yeast Defense with Power Probiotic and the best diet for yeast infections, you can give your dog natural, effective relief from yeast infections.
