Rescued Golden Retriever Recovers From Acid Reflux and Yeast Overgrowth

"I want to let you know how great Dakota, our golden retriever that we rescued about 6 months ago, is doing.  When we got him, he had bad ear infections that he had for months, and his skin was so black in the armpit and groin areas that we thought it was ground in dirt.  He also had acid reflux and would bring up bile several times a day.  He obviously did not feel well and was in a lot of pain.  It has taken several months, but the blackened skin (from yeast) is almost back to normal thanks to K9 Yeast Defense.  The recommended dose made him extremely itchy so we give him ½ the dose.  It has been a slower but more comfortable process for him that way.  I wish we had taken “before” pictures of his skin because the difference is remarkable.  And, for his acid reflux, we had him on Pepcid initially.  When we first started your supplements (Power Probiotic, K9 Digestive Enzymes, Gastro ULC and Soothing Digestive Relief), we still had to give him the Pepcid, but we’ve been slowly weaning him off the Pepcid.  He had been taking 4 tablets a day at one point, and he is now down to a ½ tablet a day.  And I can’t forget to mention using your food recommendations.  His ears didn’t start to clear up until we got him eating food that he could tolerate.  We had an intolerance test done also and found that he cannot tolerate beef, chicken, lamb or salmon, all grains including rice, potatoes and sweet potatoes.  All of these are commonly used in dog food.  This is why they could not get the ear infections to clear up before we got him.  Thank you so much for your supplements and all your help.  Dakota is a much happier dog thanks to you!"
