    Let me give u a couple examples why an article from a board certified veterinary dermatologists means absolutely nothing g to me when Uve talks to let owners who have been dealing with their dig for years and found these cures to work. Recently I went to a urologist, I got a referal from my primary because I needed a specialist. I had done probably my 3 days of research on the matter and when I was examined it was obvious I knew much much .it’s about my disease than this so called specialist who had gone to med school for 8 years. Not because he wasn’t smart but because it was my body, and I had Adamantly pursued what was wrong, what medicine I needed and what should be done from all types of sources. I then found the best specialist in the state and after speaking g with him I got another referal. Example 2- I am a computer networker I recently ran into a complex problem with my personal computer that I dint know how to fix right away. Someone who had researched this exact problem from multiple sources for 2 days could have figured out the problem- does this mean they know more than me after years of school? Example 3- The last couple months we’ve been thinking bodger had a thyroid issue and took him in to get a blood test. It turned out negative and the vet thought it was cushings disease which I’d never heard of. Before his LDDS test iiterally research for prob 6 a day for a week- forums, fb groups, Yahoo groups- (the majority of these people are pet owners who are extremely knowledgeable on the subject and have been dealing with this stuff for over a decade and probably more knowledgeable than most vets.) I read articles of all shapes and sizes, punished reports and journals, called the o my place in the country that does a pituitary tumor operation and talked to one of the best IMS on my side of the state. Anyway needless to say after a week I knew much .ore on the subject than my vet when we had his test and it came back negative she just said “ohp he’s all better nothing wrong with him” I believe it was a unique type of Cushing’s and have an appt with a ISP. Point is because your knowlegable In A subject and do it for a living In No way means your right or even have the faintest I would in a heartbeat give pet owners who have lived this day In and day out for years with their loved one just like I did when I spoke with people whos own body it was. But like I said I whole heardjust disagree but will continue ue to research what you said. I’m going g to call my IMS and the u iveristy who does the operation and a very good dermatoligist in a nearby city who I’ve already spoken with on Monday and I will post here what they say. We are also doing a skin allergy test next month and I have no knowledge of those but I was told by one person a forum they can be unreliable and when I was checking out different pet foods around town today I went to local co-op and talked to a lady who worked there who has had terrible yeast problems with her dog for years. She told me she’s spent thousands and different vets and IMS and nothing worked and she has tried dozens of foods doing tests trying g to find out what he was allergic to and the test they did to find out what he was allergic to turned out to be garbage. I kinda had 2 points there- I talked to 2 people who said the allergy tests didn’t work and 1 person who said the test of Ingredients trial and error didn’t work-study this by no means means anything though- just one person’s experience. Anyway after everything she tried she stu k with avaderm for the last couple years, a. Couple months ago she bought pre/pro biotics supplement to add to the food and within 2weeks there was a noticeable difference and within 6weeks he was perfect. Nothing changed except the addition of the final enzymes. In Case ur wondering she wasn’t trying to sell me anything – they didn’t sell the supplement there she was just telling g me her story. Anyway Im done rangting, I. Exhausted and I hope u can read this as my auto correct is going nuts. Have a good evening and I will report back.

    I will respectfully disagree. I am completley open minded though and continue to read on the subject. I want my dog to get well and if that means everything I learned and I’m wrong so be it but I really, really dont believe this. I’ve talked to many professionals- IMS and dermatoligists, read many articles and most importantly talked to many, many knowlegable pet owners who have gone through years of trial and error with yeast problems and have tried for instance to removee starch, or grains or sugars or just use ACV or just probiotics, or just coconut oil, and weeks later a years long horrible problem are gone. I’m sure placebo effect right? The people I’ve talked to, myself included aren’t someone who just reads an article or talks to one person and takes it for gospel. There’s so much more supporting what I believe than what you say. What matters more, that there has been a limited number of scientific studys with incliclusive results and something hasn’t been scientifically proven or its reversed effects for thousands if dog owners who live and care for their pets and with them every second if the day and seen there lives change because of these cures. I’m getting wysong starch free kibble and a probiotic supplement for internal and outwardly using ACV and coconut oil and I firmly believe that in 3 months Bodger will be doing wonderful.

    I finished reading that, I can’t believe how much garbage she’s spewing. I would much rather listen to the hundreds of dog owners who have had amazing results from coconut oil ACV, probiotics, and a low sugar/carb/starch diet than one vet who says it can’t be proven by science. The proof is in the results.

    Speaking from personal experience and many, many, articles and vets and forums, I think much from that link rubbish. if u want I could post link after link. Diet is the first and foremost important thing in ci trolling yeast out breaks. Once they have the yeast out break you need to control it topically but diet will prevent it from coming back.

    Aimee, that it is not accurate, sugars starches, carbs has much to do with yeast in the skin
