Wet areas on your dog’s face are a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. It is fairly common for these bacteria to come alive the tear ducts of your dog. “Ptirsporum”, red yeast bacteria, is at the root of most yeast infections. Tear stains also often occur at the same time as a gum infection or ear infection. Staining can also occur on a dog’s paws from licking and around his mouth from infected saliva. Here is a great tip to combat it.

It is a natural antibiotic, antiseptic, and deodorant; It helps digestion and to remove tooth tartar; prevents tooth decay and it also prevents and heals gum disease and skin problems; and will discourage fleas.
Putting a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar per quart of water in your dog’s water bowl or on food can clear up most active yeast infections and prevent future infections. Apple cider vinegar tablets can be used if your dog refuses to drink the treated water or eat the food.
