By releasing this report, My Best Bark can help dog owners spot a yeast infection in its early stages and get their dogs the treatment they need. Yeast is a naturally occurring fungus that can be desirable and healthy. However, an excessive amount of yeast can lead to infections.
The report explains that the medical name for a yeast infection is malassezia dermatitis, and it can occur in dogs of any sex, age, or breed. That being said, breeds with wrinkly skin such as pugs, boxers, and bulldogs are more prone to infections, because yeast flourishes in hot, moist spots. Hounds, setters, spaniels, and other dogs with large drooping ears are also at risk.
Yeast infections are generally caused by allergies, immune system deficiencies, and oily skin. They cause considerable irritation, and owners often catch their dogs biting or scratching the affected area. Infections can occur in the mouth, ears, nose, intestines, and urinary tract. Depending on the body part, symptoms may include red scaly skin, constant head tilting, poor appetite, malodorous urine, and drowsiness.
According to the report, yeast infections on the skin are typically treated with an anti-fungal shampoo, followed by a medicated shampoo that contains miconazole, chlorhexidine or ketoconazole. Infections in the mouth, inner ear, urinary tract, and other internal areas can be cured by oral medicine and injections.
The author suggests that dog owners can help speed up the healing process by using a solution of one gallon of water, one cup of hydrogen peroxide, and up to four cups of white vinegar to clean infected areas. Owners can try to prevent future outbreaks by regularly checking their dogs’ ears, skin and mouth, properly bathing and drying them after a swim in a pond or lake, and feeding them a nutritious diet.
