I bought this because it specifically mentioned yeast, which has been a problem for Mugsy since her pound days. We'd been using another brand. First we used the liquid, that stained every cloth we used to apply it, and made out hands smell for the rest of the evening. So we tried the other-brand pads, which eliminated the staining, but not the stink. Also, she would frequently lick just a short while after application, which seemed to indicate the other-brand was not as effective as it might be. THIS brand has larger pads, smells better, and doesn't have an odor that lingers even after washing hands. I've also noticed that she doesn't start licking after using it, so I think it's doing what it's supposed to be doing. Thank you.
