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.

RAW goat milk for dogs NEW
by: Maile Moore

Hi there,
Thank you for your article. I too, am giving my poor little rescued dog raw goat milk on a daily basis now. She were doing just fine for the longest time, but suddenly got a very bad yeast infection (flaking skin, loosing hair, etc.) The vet diagnosed that she got yeast infection. He gave antibiotic shot + I think steroid because it seems to work right away.
I am terrify of steroid shots for the long haul so I too did research and found that raw goat milk is great to treat yeast infection.
So, now I am giving her raw goat milk, just a 1/4 cup of goat milk 2x a day and I am hoping that the yeast infection will not return. She was super miserable and am so happy if this will work.
Also, raw goat milk is said to be full of nutrients so YEAH!

I have used raw Goats Milk externally for everything. I prefer to give Raw Goats Milk Kefir internally to eliminate systemic yeast. You could offer the Kefir internally and the raw milk externally at the same time. I also use organic coconut oil externally with various essential oils mixed into it for different conditions.
