Brewer's Yeast with Garlic - Flea control for dogs?
Taken daily, helps control shedding hair and prevents itchy, scratchy skin.
About a year after I first got Buddy he developed a skin rash on his chest and upper stomach area. These weren't the only areas affected, but the redness and irritation seemed to be worse there than it was in other places. He scratched himself constantly and this in turn only made his skin condition worsen. I had read somewhere about Brewer's Yeast with Garlic pills and how regular use helped maintain healthy skin and fur in both dogs and cats. Figuring it was worth a shot, I bought a small bottle and began giving them to him every morning. Within three weeks his itching and scratching had disappeared completely and his fur had taken on a sleek, glossy look that literally shined when the light hit him just the right way.
Now I'm a Brewer's Yeast believer.
More than one company makes Brewer's Yeast supplements. We've tried several but to sit here and say that one brand is better than another just isn't possible. The mineral and vitamin values are comparable in each regardless of which brand you choose. We initially started out with the Four Paws regular strength pills and I continued buying that same brand for over a year. Counting out 18 pills every morning gets a little old though, and when I found Excel's mega-tabs (image at left) it just made good sense to switch over to that brand (18 pills -vs- 3 pills). Again, there is no appreciable difference in either of these brands or their recommended daily dosages. The Excel mega-tabs are simply more concentrated.
