It’s been 6 weeks and Orbit is finally yeast free. I wanted to give it some time before I celebrated because we’ve been battling her yeast infection for the past 1+ years.
In this article I’ll outline all the different treatment plans that got her 50% better until finally that last step that cured her. And I haven’t seen any signs of yeast for a month and a half.
Symptoms started at 8 months
When she was 8 months old her ears started to have that funny smell. As the months progressed it moved to her paws … sometimes her belly. At it’s worst, her muzzle had dark stains and she had pustules around her ears.
I tried it all. The vinegar mix, the ACV mix, hydrogen peroxide, different sprays, different supplements, raw, allergy tests, holistic vet, diluted betadine, colloidal silver … I practically have almost every solution in my medicine cabinet.
Through diet, allergy tests, and regular cleaning – her symptoms improved 50%
But try for the life of me and 3 different vets we couldn’t figure out how to cure her completely.
In case you’re wondering as to what we tried for food (giving it at least 2 months at a time) we did raw, (prepped and DIY) and currently on DIY home cooked meals under the guidance of our vet.
Yeast is fungal
You’ve seen all the different veterinarian articles (click here for one of them) to outline that yeast is fungal.
For the longest time I was trying to figure out how to get her immune system stronger and heal her from the inside out. But other than bathing and cleaning her I didn’t look too closely at another topical solution.
I was using shampoos that had chlorhexidine. I loved the line from Duoxo (purchased it on Amazon). I thought that ingredient was enough but after the upteenth article read after midnight when her yeast problem was keeping me up – I realized I never looked for a product that had ketoconazole.
I found this spray on Amazon, paid for the expedited shipping and waited for it’s arrival.
