What is Brewers Yeast?
Brewer's yeast is one of the best sources of natural B vitamins which can help with aiding digestion, supporting of the nervous system and keeping the skin, hair, eyes, mouth, and liver healthy.
Yeast is also a good source of protein for dogs - it contains all nine of the essential amino acids needed by dogs. We include it in our Akela Fish Feast recipe.
My dog is allergic to yeast.
Canine allergies to nutritional yeast are rare, although it may sometimes be the case that a dog reacts adversely to it. More commonly the reaction is to the systemic type of yeast growing on the skin or ears.
Unless he/she is known to be allergic to nutritional yeast (which is the same as brewers yeast but not the same as the yeast growing in ears etc) there is not usually any reason why they cannot eat a food which contains yeast.
If your dog is one of the rare ones to be allergic to Brewers Yeast we advise going for our Duck recipe as it does not contain Brewers Yeast.
