How long should I use Yeast-Free Fido?
Yeast-Free Fido should be used for 30 - 60 days depending on your dog's response.
After finishing the Yeast-Free Fido bundle, we recommend using Protect to supply your dog with a healthy dose of soil-based probiotics to help support a healthy gut moving forward.
Can I buy Yeast Guard by itself?
Yeast Guard is most effective when it's used in combination with Digest and Gut Guard. Yeast Guard is used to help the body reduce and detoxify yeast populations, Digest is loaded with enzymes and probiotics to help break down Yeast, and Gut Guard is used to help seal Leaky Gut.
By buying the 3 products in a bundle, you will save off the regular price of all 3 products purchased separately.
Is the caprylic acid made with MCT Oil or Coconut Oil?
Yeast Guard uses caprylic and capric acid made from MCT Oil.
Ideally, your dog's caprylic and capric acid should come from MCT oil. Other sources, like goat milk, contain sugar (lactose) that can feed the yeast. And coconut oil is nearly half lauric acid, which promotes inflammation in the body.
This is why we ensure that Yeast Guard is made with only the highest quality ingredients, in this case, MCT oil.
Should I change my dog's diet to help fight yeast?
If your dog is currently eating a kibble diet then switching to a raw diet would be the best course of action to help fight yeast. Switching to a raw diet helps to eliminate sugar and carbs from your dog's diet as even grain-free kibbles are usually full of carbs and sugars.
Common sources of carbs and sugars found in pet foods include:
- Potatoes and sweet potatoes
- Wheat and corn
If fruits are part of your dog's diet, limit them to berries as they are lower in sugar content.
What else can I do to help my dog fight yeast?
Yeast loves heavy metals, meaning one of the best ways to fight yeast is to avoid letting heavy metals get into your dog.
Iron and Zinc are important and are healthy in small amounts but metals such as arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury can be toxic to your dog.
Feeding your dog organic food is a good way to avoid glyphosate (which is loaded with heavy metals). Fish, low-quality fish oil, and fluoridated water are all common sources of heavy metals and should be limited as much as possible to help fight yeast as well.
When should I give Yeast-Free Fido?
Gut Guard and Yeast Guard can be given at mealtime, but for best results Digest should ideally be given between meals. This will help break down the yeast cell wall and allow Yeast-Free Fido to do its job.
