Stinky Dog - Could It Be Yeast?

Does your dog have a musty, "cheesy" odor? Does he scratch at his ears and or tilt his head? ? Dark ear discharge and odors are a common sign of yeast infections in dogs. Other signs of yeast may include red skin, licking at the groin, blackened skin on the abdomen or armpits, rubbing their face on the carpet and butt scooting. These can also be symptoms of itchy skin due to allergies as well.

In particular, dogs can develop yeast infections in their ears because yeast thrives in warm, moist environments. Dogs with floppy ears, such as those of many breeds like Cocker Spaniels or Basset Hounds, are particularly prone to trapping moisture within the ear canal. This creates an ideal breeding ground for yeast overgrowth. Allergic reactions, whether to food, environmental allergens, or both, can compromise a dog's immune system and can cause a yeast overgrowth. Weakened immunity may make the ears more susceptible to yeast infections. Dogs with underlying allergies may exhibit frequent ear scratching and inflammation.

Ask Ariel's K9 Yeast Defense is formulated with natural ingredients known for their antifungal and antibacterial properties, specifically chosen to address yeast infections in dogs. Caprylic acid, a fatty acid derived from coconut oil, has potent antifungal effects, helping to combat the overgrowth of yeast in the dog's system. Oregano, rich in compounds like carvacrol and thymol, exhibits antimicrobial properties that can aid in controlling yeast and bacteria. Pau d'arco, derived from the inner bark of a South American tree, is renowned for its antifungal and immune-boosting properties. Together, these ingredients work synergistically to rebalance your dog's intestinal flora, creating an environment less favorable for yeast proliferation. By supporting the immune system and promoting a healthy microbial balance, Ask Ariel's K9 Yeast Defense not only provides fast relief for symptoms but also contributes to long-term wellness. When combined with the Power Probiotic, the comprehensive approach addresses the root causes of yeast issues, offering a holistic solution for dogs dealing with discomfort and itching associated with yeast infections.
