I had a problem with her and her skin she had malestisia and antibiotics cleared her up so I put her on pero working dog food which she loves and cleared up her skin I've taken her back since the food about her ears but because the antibiotics didn't clear them up they said it wasn't that. I've removed all straw from the kennels and now use cow matting. Thanks for your quick reply.

try her on a raw meat only diet for a while some dogs dont get on too well with all the cereals in dry meal and it causes them untold skin disorders :)

so it was a yeast infection then. diet plays a big part in that, treatments ive herd of include yougart and washing with cider vineger, have you tried looking on the net for other peoples experiences in treating it?

Eliminate ALL cereals from the diet. They are often responsible for yeast infections etc. Feed raw food, fresh food only: meat, bones, whole carcases, tripe, fish, with plenty of green leafy veg: steamed nettles and spinach are particularly good. Get Kelp from Dorwest Herbs.

 

Do not feed dry or manufactured dog food: it all contains cereals such as wheat, soya etc. Boiled rice should be OK: use brown rice rather than white.

Change the dogs diet.,Boiled minced chicken & rice with water in the slow cooker.Camerosa ointment rubbed into the ears twice a day should sort it! Hope this helps. :victory:
