How to Solve Dog Yeast Infection Quickly and Naturally

A dog yeast infection can be one of the trickiest health issues to deal with.

They can show up in any part of a dog’s body and have the ability to cause a great deal of discomfort. Dogs prone to this condition that are given over the counter remedies typically only find temporary relief until the problem creeps up all over again.

Yet this is to be expected any time a pet owner chooses to merely treat the symptoms of a yeast infection instead of the underlying cause. All pet owners need to do to get rid of this problem for life is put their dog’s PH balance back at stable levels.

Putting a PH balance back to a stable level can sound daunting but in all reality, it as simple as ridding a dog’s body of an overload of sugar. Most pet owners don’t know that 90% of disease in dogs is diet related. Most are also unaware of the over processed carbohydrates or even the waste beet pulp from sugar refineries that often ends up in their canine companion’s food.

Dog owners don’t know how a dog’s physiology was never designed to handle the high levels that in turn knock its system so far off balance. What’s worse is these high sugar levels can do more than just cause a dog yeast infection. They can cause other serious health problems as well.

As stated by R. Geoffrey Broderick, DVM, “Every time a pet trustingly eats another bowl of high sugar pet food, he is being brought that much closer to diabetes, hypoglycemia, overweight, nervousness, cataracts, allergy and death.”

The answer to getting a dog on the path to health and wellness

The answer to getting a dog on the path to health and wellness for good relies on switching to a natural diet of raw unprocessed naturally occurring dog food comprised of fresh varieties of meats on the bone with a little organ meat and vegetable content thrown in to complete an all round diet.

This is basically the same choice of cuts we are used to buying at the deli counter or butcher but instead of cooking it to suit our palate, it’s simply left raw and handed straight to your dog to enjoy the kind of food dogs are physiologically suited to with all the benefits this brings.

The rich balance of live enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, flavinoids, vitamins, minerals in addition to the full range of over 35 proteins contained in your dogs part of the weekly shopping are what heal imbalances naturally and for life.

Not only will a diet of raw meat and bone get rid of a pesky dog yeast infection, it lowers the risks of a laundry list of dog allergies, diabetes, obesity, dog ear infection, Gastro Intestinal infections and all the life threatening issues that come with them. As a pet owner, you will not only have a healthier dog, you will no longer need to spend your hard earned cash on pointless dog yeast infection remedies that just don’t work.

Watch the short video below to undestand better how dog food allergies lead to dog yeast infection.

Dog yeast infection disappears quickly when you add fresh food to your dogs diet

As long as a canine companion remains on a commercial pet food diet, getting rid of a dog yeast infection will be a cycle of pain and money down the drain. In comparison, and this is a crucial point to remember, a diet of raw dog food not only works as food but also medicine.

There are no over processed carbohydrates in fresh raw dog food and the nutrients contained in meat are whole and complete. With fresh raw meat, a dog’s physiology can get to work immediately to get all the right nutrients in all the right places.

By the time a yeast infection shows in a commercially fed dog, their system is far off balance and treating dog allergies becomes sheer gues work involving expensive tests, drugs, food and worry. Dogs on a raw meat diet have healing from the inside out with every meal they eat.

  1. Hi Dan,

    My dog is suffering with yeast as far as I can tell. She itches and scratches, has red bumps just about everywhere but her back, has a yeast smell. she is and has been on the Instinct Raw chicken diet. I’m beginning to think she may be allergic to chicken. I want to switch foods since she does not appear to be too healthy on this one. I been looking for an anti yeast dog food, one with no sugar or carbs and can’t find one. I started giving her wild Alaskan pink salmon from out of the can, but salt is added. I’m worried she may be getting too much salt and about high mercury levels. I’m thinking of switching to fresh salmon. I’m thinking of making my own, but I want to avoid all poultry chicken, turkey or quail. I also heard beef is another big allergen causing food. I would like to just make my own, but don’t know where to start. Do you have any suggestions??? She is a French bull dog. I am therefore afraid to give her raw bones for fear of choking.

  2. Hi Kelly, Yes it sounds like allergy induced response to the additives in commercial dog food (very common). Chicken generally has a low allergy reaction although what your feeding is a packet food mixed with various other ingredients so difficult to make conclusions about. Try feeding chicken on the bone from a butcher plus other alternatives and see how your dog takes to them.

    Don’t worry about anti yeast foods and the like, just feed raw on the bone food as it comes from a butcher or online delivery. Only when you feed specific raw foods with nothing added will you find out which your dog gets on well with.

    How do you know of your dogs ability to handle bones?
    He may be perfect at breaking them down as are most dogs, let him try on easy bones like lamb breast/brisket, pork trotter/ear or raw green tripe which is awesome balanced dog food-buy online for box delivery frozen.

    Hope these suggestions help, keep going and the current problems will start to fade fast.

  3. Hi,
    My Dog eats raw, beef and lamb shank mostly. i also add a little bit of organic pumpkin. She won’t eat raw chicken or turkey and won’t touch liver raw or cooked. She is picky. Anyway, she has a yeast infection, not sure why since she only eats raw and curious if you have any other ideas on how to cure this naturally?
    Thank you,
    Suzanne

  4. Hi Suzanne, interesting, there is some nutritional deficiency somewhere?
    Try out raw green tripe as this is very well balanced and a great healer. Find it locally or frozen box delivery over the net. Also how does the yeast infection show itself? For now use essential oil of Lavender, 10 drops in small bowl of warm water and swabbed on with flannel-that will treat the surface symptoms.

    Hope that helps, Dan.

  5. Hi,
    I have a 9 year old Beagle and a 2 year old who both have dry, itchy skin. The Beagle, who we think has a yeast infection will not let us do anything lik using apple cider vinegar in her ears or anywhere else! She is so stubborn! Please help us!!!

  6. Hi Kaily, two things:

    1-IF you can get her to stay still, then use essential oil of Lavender in the ears or anywhere else there are problems-works wonders at healing. Use 10 drops in one cup of water and swab with flannel on the infected areas.

    2- The real cure all here is to clear up the ears and any dry itchy skin with diet. You see, raw food also acts as medicine healing ALL the complaints you speak of. In fact they would be gone within 2 months!.

    Think seriously about switching your dogs to a raw food diet to heal theses current problems and more and then you won’t have to worry about them any more or your dogs suffer the fallout from your present feeding practices, your call?

    My book, up top on the right will show you the way, good luck.

  7. Dan, thanks for the info thus far…this is what I’m dealing with.

    I have a 11 yr old mix breed and we have been battling the dreaded yeast infection for over 7 months. After reading online, we’ve been feeding her ground beef or ground turkey and adding apple cider vinegar and yogurt. We have been baking or just browning the meat before feeding her. I really need help. The smell is unbearable and i have 3 small kids and hate the thought of them even playing in the floor or touching her. if i dont get this under control i will have to do something drastic that i dont want to

  8. Dwain, you have no balance to the diet and your dog has low immunity plus I don’t know if the kids add to the stress levels ie does he have quiet time?(just a thought).

    The ground stuff can only be effective if it is a part of an overall strategy. In a nutshell, your dog needs raw food, food that is 50/50 balance between meat and bone content ie feed a chicken quarter on the bone and not ground turkey meat (imbalanced). If the browning or baking is because your dog won’t eat fully raw then only flash pan fry it in butter to seal the outside and leave it raw on the inside. If it’s cooked through then what you have with the yeast infection is one result. Why? because raw meat and bone contain living enzymes among many other bio available ingredients that help run cellular activity all over your dogs body and fortify your dogs immune system to the problems you currently have.

    I can go on here, but the devil is in the detail as they say, so just get my book and it will explain everything you need to know in plain english and you will be able to get this problem under control and not have to do something drastic with your dog, that would be a real shame as it’s not his fault or yours.

    Hope I’ve helped you to get some traction on this and a clear path going forward, ask if you need further help, Dan.

    Hi Dan,

    My American Bulldog has hypo thyroidism and was getting Staph infections constantly. I have put him on a raw diet consisting of 90% ground beef and 10% beef kidney (I started this about 5 weeks ago), he now has a yeast infection. Should I be adding anything else? I just started adding Forta Flora to help his digestion, but just started that 2 days ago. Any help would be appreciated.

  10. Hi Corinne, lovely dogs, always have to stop and stare when I see one.

    Ok, your diet is un-balanced. The beef mince should only be once per week, 10% beek kidney is fine. Get him on whole chicken frame, whole lamb rib, whole fish, 9in whole pork trotter/leg. And find raw green tripe on the net or locally (if your in the countryside). Throw in some small amount of crushed semi cooked veg he likes and forget the Flora. Give only filtered water, feed once per day and fast him one day per week minimum!

    Gotta get those bones in with that meat! The tripe is different but GREAT food. This will sort things out and hopefully get the balance back in the hormones.

  11. There’s a online dog raw by darwins . Do you know if that is consider balanced.thank you trying raw for my Boston with light yeast issue. Don’t want it to get worse

  12. Hi Glenda, yes that should work fine with your Boston.

    Hi Dan – I’ve switched both my Frenchies to Steve’s Raw BARF diet and they’ve been on it for over three months now. I also give them Nyzemes probiotics and antioxidant vitamins. Even their treats are raw freeze dried nuggets. While their skin has drastically improved, my boy still gets itchy spots on his tummy and my girl still has yeast spots on her skin – 90% improvement, but I can’t seem to get it to go completely away. I bath them with anti allergy and anti yeast shampoos – respectively. Can you recommend anything else? Thanks, Amy

  14. Hi Amy, 90% in three months is good, it’s now down to small but invasive problems which may or may not be due to diet. Your dogs will always face environmental and human stresses, by such things as household & yard cleaning products, the human/dog relationship and the stress of communication’s meaning and outcome, fasting or not etc.

    It reads like your diet is good if 90% improvement.
    Advice:
    Fast the dogs one day per week on filtered/bottle water only for 24hrs to clear out the liver – will help a lot!
    Be mindful of household and garden products and their ingredients.
    Why are you bathing them? Only bathe if getting filthy dirty outside. A balanced raw diet brings it’s own anti-allergy protection. Cut back on shampoos.
    Yeast is from sugars/carbs. No feeding of anything that isn’t raw.
    Their body’s are still full of chemicals, drugs, vaccines, pollution ect, it all stays in the body tissues for years – you must fast them to clear the liver and begin detoxing the body and you’ll see the current problems dissapear over the next 12 months.
    Vaccination: None is best and those by law only!

    Keep going, your doing brilliantly!
