My cat has a yeast rash and frequent yeast infections. Is there a natural remedy to reduce my cat's yeast issues?
When your cat has a yeast infection, it is an opportunity to increase your cat's overall immune function. For cat yeast infections, we recommend probiotics and enzymes which are highly effective at keeping yeast overgrowth in control the natural way.
Probiotics and Enzymes
Probiotic Miracle® and Enzyme Miracle® work together to break down yeast and build good gut ecology that resists yeast growth in the body. Best of all, probiotics and enzymes are a safe remedy for kittens as well as adult cats. For best value, try the Miracle Pack® or MiracleZyme combo chews.
WHAT IS IT?
An overgrowth of yeast which leads to a yeast infection is common in cats. Yeast infections in cats are usually associated with the ear and characterized by wax residue and scabbing around the ear. Yeast is really a symptom of what can be a variety of possible underlying conditions and causes.
CAUSES OF YEAST INFECTIONS IN CATS
- Bacterial infection
- Poor diet
- Gut imbalance
- Overuse of prescriptions or antibiotics
When it comes to cat yeast infections, if you look even deeper it is likely that yeast overgrowth is coming from a poor diet, overuse of antibiotics, or other substances which harm gut ecology.

It may be difficult to recognize if your cat has a yeast infection. Any cat can get a yeast infection, however, yeast infections are most common in female cats. With the modern cat food diet, more and more cats have come victim to yeast infections due to poor digestion and gut condition.
Taking your cat to the vet may be necessary in this case, but will most likely result in a prescription or antibiotics. While this is sometimes necessary, in many cases antibiotics can be avoided through natural care. We believe this is better for your cat's long-term health.
Avoiding yeast infections can be simple. First, a balanced gut ecology inhibits yeast growth. To balance the gut, the answer is probiotics, probiotics, and more probiotics! Probiotics, like Probiotic Miracle® are very effective in addressing yeast infection problems in cats.
To go one step further, your cat's yeast problem is often associated with allergies and toxin build up. For this, we recommend a multi-enzyme supplement, like Enzyme Miracle® . Enzymes can streamline the digestive process, and support the entire body's metabolism. Certain enzymes target yeast and fungus specifically, and this is truly valuable for cats with yeast problems.
