I am not a vet
Our dog was diagnosed with a staph infection and giving prescription medication, which cleared it up, but as soon as medication was finish it started to come back again, so i am trying this as i don’t want to keep giving her antibiotics all the time.
Have made these changes to our dogs diet and cleansing her skin for the last 4 weeks, overall after 8 weeks there should be a improvement.
I will post after 4 weeks and show progress of our dog.
Bacterial and yeast infections
Food allergy

yorkie has these scabs all over her body and these black spots on her stomach. Some of the scabs on her stomach are not scabs yet they look like pimples.
The solution I’m about to use will take care of staph, yeast, and pretty much any common bacteria, but doesn’t sting or irritate the dog’s skin at all. And it’s safe if dogs lick the area after cleaning.

changed her food and treats
she is on dry food , grain free diet,
Hypo-allergenic , no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives
And no GMO ingredients, it costs more to buy, but at the end of the day it’s worth it for your dog or cat.
The treats is the same, we only buy treats that are Hypoallergenic contain no added wheat, wheat gluten, dairy, pork or beef.
We give her Dorwest Herbs Evening Primrose Oil Capsules, one a day, it has Fish oils (Omega 6 fatty acids) fish oil is good for dogs skin to prevent yeast and bacteria and is known to hydrate dry, itchy skin and maintain a lustrous, glossy coat.
We also give her Sardines in sunflower oil ‘1 piece’ with her food twice a week this is high in omega 3

Bathing her more often is a very good idea as this will help with the itching
A hypoallergenic shampoo is what we use.

Overall if these suggestions are not helping then I would consider taking them to your vet

changing her food to a Hypoallergenic contain no added wheat, wheat gluten, dairy, pork or beef.

Treating your dog daily with a povidone iodine wash is the safest way to treat minor secondary infection without racing to the vet for antibiotics that may weaken the immune system.
Disinfects staph, yeast, and almost all common bacteria
• Doesn’t sting or irritate the dog’s skin at all
• Safe if dogs lick the area after cleaning

To use:
1. In a small container dilute 10% povidone iodine with warm water. Water it down to the color of iced tea. If it comes up too light, just add a bit more of the iodine. If it’s a bit dark, add more water. Mix only what you’ll need.
2. Soak a clean washcloth in the diluted povidone iodine solution. Gently wipe down the entire body. Pay special attention to sores, bumps, eruptions, flaky areas or areas where yeast is suspected. Treat the healthy skin too to help stop problems before they start.
3. Rinse the washcloth, wring it out well and dip it in the diluted iodine again. Do one more pass just as before. pat your dog dry

It is important to do this disinfecting process every day. Twice a day if possible.
