Yeast Issues in Dogs
Natural Remedies for Dogs with Yeast Issues
My dog has a yeast problem in his ears and under his belly. Is there a way I can help him resist yeast overgrowth through diet?
When your dog has a yeast infection, it is an opportunity to increase your dog's overall immune function. For dog 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 first place. Best of all, probiotics and enzymes are a safe remedy to prevent yeast in puppies as well as adult dogs. For best value, try the Miracle Pack® or MiracleZyme combo chews.
WHAT IS IT?
Yeast overgrowth is really a symptom of a variety of underlying health and lifestyle causes. Yeast infections are common in dogs, and are usually associated with the ears, characterized by wax residue and scabbing around the ear.
CAUSES OF YEAST INFECTIONS IN DOGS

- Overuse of prescriptions or antibiotics
When it comes to dog 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.

- Excessive rubbing of the ears or tilting of the head
- Waxy residue and scabbing around the opening of the ear
- Scabby, or reddened skin anywhere on body
- Yellow, or bloody discharge

It may be difficult to recognize if your dog has a yeast infection. Any dog can get a yeast infection, however, yeast infections are most common in female dogs. With a processed dog food diet, or a diet high in carbohydrates, more and more dogs have come victim to yeast infections due to poor digestion and low gut health.
Taking your dog 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 dog'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 dogs.
To go one step further, your dog'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 dog with yeast problems.
