Shih Tzus/Shih tzu with pancreatitis and yeast infection
Our five-year old rescue shih tzu has a history of pancreatitis - most recently in November. Since that time she's been on a diet of boiled chicken (which my husband adds a small bit of elbow macaroni because he tells me she needs the fiber - I'm not convinced). During the last few days she has had a lot of trouble sleeping at night because of scratching and shaking her ears. Last night I took her to the vet and she has a yeast infection. I was told that having her on the same diet for a long time might cause her to develop allergies and hence the yeast infection. He told me to look for a dog food with either rabbit or venison. I am not comfortable with any dog food because of the amount of recalls there have been over the last few years. We also have a rescue lhasa - they eat the same foods and she's doing fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
Hi Lynne - We like the Fromm's Brand of food - NEVER a recall in about 100 years --- here is the link ; check out the excellent ingredients - also they have a Store Locator
Also, you may want to get your kids onto the NuVET plus Wafer or Powder supplement ;
MOST of my clients take NuVET daily - it's an Allergy Blaster and Immune system Booster
