Yes, it definitely can! We all have some yeast in our gut already (fun fact): it’s completely normal. When there’s an overgrowth of yeast, it becomes problematic because it can create an imbalance in the gut microbiome– a community responsible for vital functions in the body, including a healthy immune system.
Microflora can flood the gut with good bacteria (10 Billion CFU) to competitively inhibit the growth of yeast. If your pup is experiencing yeast infections in the skin or ears, that could also have come from the gut, meaning it started in the gut and invaded the rest of the body. Microflora could combat that yeast and balance the microbiome by increasing the normal bacteria (probiotics) in the gut.
