Treating Yeast Infection in Dogs with Raw Goats Milk
by Patty W.
(Laguna Hills, CA)
My two year old lab suddenly came down with a yeast infection on his belly, under his legs, and around his neck. Vet gave him a steroid shot and prescribed antibiotics. The treatment worked temporarily but the problem soon returned.
Did a lot of online research and decided to go with a natural treatment which consisted of adding apple cider vinegar, probiotics, grapefruit seed extract and virgin coconut oil to his diet. It did work, but slowly.
I continued my research and found some information online about raw goats milk and the benefits of helping cure yeast infections in dogs (it helps balance the immune system).
I first took him off the food I was feeding as it contained some starch which helps feed the yeast and put him on a limited ingredient food, added the raw goats milk and virgin coconut oil (Whole Foods).
Within a week the infection started clearing up and I have continued with this treatment and he has not had one outbreak since. It has been seven months since I started the treatment. It was a miracle! Also, his coat is full and shiny.
