Gypsey who was suffering many issues, malassezia being one of them, underwent a 4 Step Return to Health Programme, was suffering malassezia, severe weight loss, was on a restricted diet, and diagnosed with pyoderma, seborrhea dermatitis, abcesses, purulent discharging from the ears, a terrible smell and alopecia. Malassezia is only a symptom of underlying health issues, which was why she had to adopt the 4 Step Return to Health Programme, to address gut dysbiosis (producing inflammation), suspected Leaky Gut, suspected liver toxicity and re-establishment of healthy microbes with MicroMed for Dogs. Within a month gypsey ws gaining weight, regaining hair, inflammation and hot spots were healed, the bacterial and fungal infections were gone, and she was a bright, bouncy girl again.
