Yeast Infections in Dogs. It's Curable!!!
by: Brenda

My shih tzu suffered terribly with Candida (yeast).

I had fed him foods over the years like cheese, carrots, blueberries, and fed him Primal raw for a time until I found out Carnivora (made in Canada) has a raw pet food with no added carbs or fruits.

The key is to alleviate all sugar sources.

I switched to Carnivora, feed him a free run, raw egg and a whole, frozen sardine once a week mixed in his food (excellent nutritional value).

He also receives a bit of fresh parsley, and an appropriate amount of phyto plankton daily. 2 drops of coriander oil daily helped with the possible yeast die-off issues.

The rashes, etc. began to disappear, we're good now.

We have Sandra to thank for my boys healing and my sanity. She has years of experience which is far more effective than short term solutions like Apoquel and other drugs that do nothing but cause further problems.

I'm thankful each and every day to have found Sandra.

Your Pug with Itch
by: Sandra

Hello Nalina,

You didn't tell me what food your Pug is currently eating, but I would recommend you start a low inflammation diet of fresh foods.

If your dog is currently eating kibble, you can add some fresh foods to start the process.

Whole eggs can be cracked and added as a fresh food topper. Fresh herbs are great. Flat leaf Italian Parsley is wonderful. Simply chop some ( about a tablespoon ) and add to kibble. Canned sardines, mackerel, or herring packed in water with low salt, are great for adding Omega 3 fatty acids and dogs LOVE these small fish.

If you want to go all in, you can get ground meat, bones and organ meats at the grocery store. Most grocery stores world wide carry these things.

One critically important thing I would recommend is to start fasting your dog. At the very least, one day a week. Just don't feed your dog for one day a week. I know you probably won't like to do this, but it will help your dog heal, over time. When the body does not have to put it's energy into digesting food, it can concentrate it's energy into needed healing.

Hope that helps,
