I've read the post about using Copper Chloride, Zinc Chloride and ACV for curing yeast infection on dogs skin but I am having a time finding these two chemicals locally. Do you have a suggestion as to where I might look. I've tried local farm supplies and even pharmacies.

A yeast infections in dogs, if supplies can't be found is just to switch the dog to eating fresh partially uncooked meats and liver. A packaged dog food can be high in fungus count as a result of long term storage. The drinking water should add 1 teaspoon of baking soda in one liter so that the dog has proper alkalinity so that the yeast infections becomes reduced. Many dog foods add excess crude fat, which are not helpful yeast infections, therefore lean meats and liver are more preferable. Pork and Chicken meat is acceptable also, but it should be prepared at home so that the nutrients of the food is still there.
