Yes yes yes...I have had the stinky skin problem and yeasty ear problem. Not the crusty ears but we had goopy eyes.
What I have tried that didn't work:
lots of visits to the vet for shots, tests and such
What I have done that has worked:
Feeding a food that has meat as the main ingredient...no more grain filled foods.
Giving a raw meat treat once a week or twice a month.
Using dinovite and lickochops supplements-totally got rid of dandruff, itchy skin and smelly skin for good, dinovite.com
Started using dogosuds shampoo ( I like the lavender one the best
but now I don't have to shampoo as often, only when he gets into dirt not because he smells from yeast or skin problems. dogosuds.com
I really like that we were able to address the problems with nutrition, not using steroids or medications. I felt like I was putting a band aid on the problem when we used medications for the quick fix. Now the problems are a thing of the past and my dog actually sleeps in my bed because he isnt shedding or stinking! If you have tested your dog for the thyroid issues and there are no real medical conditions that are evident, then the best guess would be a nutrition issue.
