  1. Sharon here from Wealthy Affiliate – good to meet you. Very good article, and yeast overgrowth is of course called candida, which is a pre-cursor to cancer. The only way to eliminate this is to exclude all yeast, grains, sugar and fruit. I think this would pretty much mean homemade food not commercial kibble.

    1. Hi Sharon
      Sorry I haven’t got back to sooner but your message was in the SPAM folder and I didn’t see it until now. Nice meeting you as well. You correct the yeast overgrowth is called candida and it is very serious. We make our own dog food and for Bailey it made from Turkey, Broccoli, and Eggs. We also give them human grade vitamins, probiotics, Glucosamine/Chondroitin, kelp and fish oil.
      Thanks for your comments.

    1. It hasn’t been that long as a website about a month. But actually doing what we have put in the website it has been years. A lot of research and trial and error. I kept everything with the hope one day I could do this site.

  5. I never knew dogs could have allergies like that. Thank you for bringing this to light. I am actually in the market for a new dog so I will keep an eye out for this.

    1. Hey Marc
      I am with you, I never new about allergies in dogs until we got Bailey. What is funny about this whole situation is Bailey does not have dander so he doesn’t trigger allergies in humans. We found his allergy problems by watching him and observing his scratching and biting habits and came to the conclusion that the dog food was one of the major symptoms of his allergies. We have a newsletter that will keep you up to date on these issues. you can get here
      Thanks for the comment and check us out in the future.
