Hello everybody!

Long story (short see below): Ever since we got Bri in January, she was fast in getting irritated paws, which mostly expressed itself by redness. We brought this to the attention of her vet, who was not too concerned, since Bri didn't lick/bite at her paws. She gave us anti bacterial wipes to use 3x a day and to come back if it gets worse. It didn't get worse but over the course of 3 weeks it didn't get better either.
But, as said, it was just the color, Bri didn't seem to be bothered by it.

We started feeding raw (are at our second protein, turkey, right now) 3 weeks ago. The redness of the paws got less (at least in my opinion). 5 days into raw, her fur got a little doll and she had lots of dandruff. That lasted for about 2-3 days, then it went away. About 1 1/2 weeks into starting to feed raw, I noticed the a different smell on her, coming mostly from her paws, which were not really red anymore, but more brownish in between the toes. Mind you, she still didn't pay any attention to it at all. A week ago I noticed her belly being a little darker as before and it was also smelling a little in the Frito direction. So I made a solution with ACV and water and wiped the belly and her paws as well (her paws get wiped dry after ever walk/trip to the backyard). But the smell/appearance did not changed.
Just a little info before, she always had clean ears, I normally check them every 3-4 days and as of yet there hardly ever was anything to wipe out. But three days ago when I checked, they was brownish debris in there and the ears were also smelling like Fritos. So I cleaned them (with a store bought solution and cotton balls) every day.

Short:
Always had red paws with not being bothered by it. Switched to raw 3 weeks ago. Paws not really red anymore, but brownish, belly now brownish as well, ears have brownish gunk in them (were always clean before), Frito smell present. Tried ACV and water wipe for paws/belly, store bought ear cleaner for ears.


Weird for me: She is not bothered at all. Doesn't lick or bite overly, doesn't shake her head. :confused:

Questions: Can this be a yeast infection without itching? Any more thoughts on home remedies or should I consult a vet about this?
She is fed PMR, but beginner stages, so no organs yet.

Help, please?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Thank you! I found this article in my earlier research already and that and some other articles/things I read brought me to the ACV.

But what bugs me is that Bri doesn't itch at all and the ACV mixture doesn't really seem to do anything either.

I guess, since I need to go to the vet to get some Bravecto anyways, might just take her along and see what they say.

Hi I was just wondering if you ever found out what the problem is? I'm having the same issues with my pit and I'm scared it's fleas or yeast.
