My dog has a very serious yeast infection he is a pit Boxer

Customer Question

my dog has a very serious yeast infection he is a pit Boxer mix he is about 50 pounds he is a sweetheart he's been recently neutered and healthy all I can say is I noticed him scratching when I first got him I always thought it was bugs in the grass or something then I noticed an older eventually and didn't pay it any attention then I noticed he had a very serious call and we got the car under control with the Vets help and some medicine now I noticed about the yeast infection when I took her to the vet he had a bacterial infection and a yeast infection 2 times now this is the third time and it's very serious I put them on the world died recently hamburger with the eggs and and the dynamite supplements and it seems like everything got worse because his hair started believing him on his back and then his skin we get hot to the touch everywhere we turn red it would be Flamin Hot and the vet told me that she doesn't know what to do charity put him on antibiotics and then take a medicine with this case shampoo and she said she don't know what else to do I took with another bed and he told me he didn't know what to do absolutely to take him to a dermatologist which is very expensive I don't know what to do he recently stopped eating his raw food he didn't want to eat it at all. So I just put him back on his cables Rachael Ray with a cooked chicken and rice I cook a pot of water leg quarters with rice with brown rice and I took that and I make a mix a little bit of the brown rice with his Rachael Ray dry dog food so I am just totally lost I'm using everything vinegar Rentz to the case and pool I'm soaking his feet in peroxide I'm using iodine antiseptics antiseptics in the store I'm using the vitamins with Goldenseal and enchantment also using vitamin E pills fish oil pills 900 milligrams of Omega fatty acid probiotics I am using human probiotics best one to have Allen or align I do think it's all related because we have a serious mold in the house we had some serious roof leak issues and then we got him taken care of but we didn't do a cleanup from where the water was leaked on the rugs so I'm sure mold is there behind the carpets and stuff don't know if that's the problem when I first got him he didn't have any skin issues he was abused left outside wasn't an indoor dog have a lot of police never scratched nothing from the fleas and nothing I always thought that it started with the rabies shots and I thought that's what broke his immune system down vaccine but I'll stop talking and let you get a word in Thanks
