|Normally yeast infections in the feet most often originate from food allergies. They are often accompanied by yeast problems in the ears as well.
In addition to the treatments being used now I would seriously consider a change of diet to one of the limited ingredient foods. Usually the problem is a protein that the dog has been eating for some time, for example chicken is quite often the issue for dogs that eat a chicken based kibble. Corn also often seems to be responsible for a number of yeast issues in dogs, especially in light colored dogs.
With the diet change it will take at LEAST 6 weeks for resolution of the issues, and you must be certain to not mess up the diet by giving even one or two dog biscuits, or a different wet food, or the like. Pick a diet and stick to it for the whole six weeks... we like to use the duck and sweet potatoe as very few dogs have grown up eating a diet of duck and/or sweet potatoe. Make sure you read ALL food and treat labels (especially) as chicken fat is often used in diets labeled beef or the like.
And, the red stained nails normally need to grow out to get rid of the red staining.
