Default Candida Yeast Overgrowth

I see so many posts on skin conditions lately, and maybe it's just striking me because I'm doing a Candida detox but, per a little research, seems be more prevalent in dogs now. Possibly because their diets contain more carbs, grains and sugars?

Thinks to look for...and I'm going to make some assumptions based on what it can do to people as well...

Skin lesions and rashes.
Itchiness
Behavioral changes - Candida can cause a brain fog
Sleep changes - Can cause change in sleep patterns
Sugar cravings - Is your dog into things that they aren't normally?
Acid reflux - is your dog vomiting often?
Leaky Gut
IBS

Here is a list of what it can cause in people. Our dogs cant' tell us if they are having these symptoms so we can only observe
Candida Symptoms
Irritable Bowel & Leaky Gut Syndrome Treatment Diet | National Candida Center

Symptoms for dogs
Dog Yeast Infections (Dog Candida) | Causes and Symptoms of Dog Candida | Natural Rinse for Yeasty Dogs

IMO, if there are recurring issues that you can not get a definitive diagnosis, a Candida detox will cost very little and may be the answer.

Thanks for the info. My dog is a bit yeasty so I'm always on the lookout for information pertaining to it.

Are you yourself doing the detox or is your dog?

I've done the detox before and it really does make a huge difference.

I'm putting my dog on it starting today.

What do you do for the detox? I might be interested in trying it myself.

My dog has always been a little yeasty, like Frito feet but nothing too bad. When we moved to FL it got worse, his crotch gets discolored and itchy. I generally apply some ACV once/twice a day and that seems to help.

I took him off raw a couple months ago and put him on Orijen..holy mother of yeast what a mess! So much worse. He's on Fromm now and it's better but not gone. I think he reacts to something in the environment and the addition of carbs in his food makes it worse.

No such thing exists unless the person or animal has an immune deficiency. It is simply another made up problem on the internet.

I did it for a variety of reasons. Brain fog, general fatigue.

For Seger, he has some symptoms of an overgrowth and has been on abx 3x. The holistic dog food store owner thinks that mold may be an issue because of the weather. It' been warm and wet this winter and he said he's seen a lot of dogs come in that have never had issues before.

If added carbs make it worse for you dog and you know there is a yeast issue, then I would try the detox. It won't harm anything! But he can't have any carbs at all while he's detoxing. Carbs feed yeast.

I must be too!

I figured the detox was no carbs. I'm not sure I want to go back to raw at this point or not. I'm going to give the Fromm a bit longer and see how it goes.

Cutting out all processed foods from my diet works wonders! It's amazing how much better I felt when eating like that.
