Personally, I am very adamant that the staining is generally caused by red yeast. I have used Angels Eyes on all three of my pups. The antibiotic component is VERY mild and totally safe to use. Instead of the 1/4 tsp suggestion on the bottle, I gave 1/8 tsp per day mixed with some plain yogurt. The idea here is that while the antibiotic will kill the bad bacteria that causes the yeast, the yogurt replaces the good bacteria. I do this for 4 weeks, which is generally when you can really tell that the red stained hair is growing out. As long as you can see it growing out, it means that the yeast infection has been cleared and you no longer need to give the Angels Eyes. Still a good idea to keep up with the yogurt for at least 2 more weeks, but it's healthy for the dogs to have yogurt anyway, so if you'd like to keep feeding the yogurt daily that's fine, too!
If the staining is not caused by a bacterial infection, the Angels Eyes will NOT clear it up.
