Understanding Yeast and Its Properties

Yeast is a type of fungus—an essential part of so many of our favorite foods, including bread and beer. Yeasts are essential to human health due to the set of specific ranges of vitamins contained in them.

One of the most essential benefits that yeast will provide is the improvement of immunity. The yeast supports and helps increase the production of white cells that improve the pet’s natural defenses from diseases.

How to add yeast to the diet: Nutritive yeast is commonly powdered. So, you add a small amount of this nutritive yeast to cover the amount of the food you provide to your pet. Nutritional yeast is believed to be safe for most pets and can be a somewhat attractive supplement due to its cheesy taste. Still, it’s better to ask a vet before a dietary transition since specific health problems or dietary restrictions should be taken into consideration. Case studies and success stories

There are so many stories of pet owners who have seen, with their own eyes, marked improvements in their pets’ health after feeding yeast as part of their diet. In one case, a Seattle dog owner reported that her aging Labrador retriejson retriever had gained a shinier coat and increased energy after she had put him on a yeast-supplemented diet for several months. Stories like these can give hope to even the most overwhelmed pet owners, who may find success in simple dietary changes.

Potential Risks and Considerations

That said, we still would not say yeast should be given to everyone. This includes pets allergic or sensitive to yeast, who, upon rapid introduction of it into the diet, will often cause digestive upset.

Begin dosage with small doses and watch for effects on your pet. The yeast supplements can never replace a balanced diet or veterinary care.


Yeast could be an inexpensive, natural way of improving pet health and keeping diseases at bay. With all the benefits it has and easy integration into the diet, yeast is a good send for pet health. But pay attention and listen to the veterinarian’s recommendations; don’t forget about all these “dos” because, like every other supplement, it must be handled with care.
