Yeast Infections in Dogs: I can only tell you what worked for me.

Put her on RAW meat, yogurt, cheese and bathe her in a tea made of PAu D'Arco (make sure it is really the heartwood and inner bark of a particular species of the tree, the Tabebuia avellanedae, (tah-bee-BOO-ee-uh ah-vel-LAN-ee-day) (that is most prized). Also apply the tea to the skin regularly until cleared up. Add some tea to her water, as well. STOP feeding any dog food with GRAIN in it- she won't need the veggies much, either. Think about a wild dog's diet, and you will get the picture. NO anti-biotics;they make yeast infection worse. In fact, you might want to look up what these meds do to dogs... We lost our Sophie to yeast infection, as she was allergic to everything the vet gave her- long, painful experience for all. We've had another dog come down with yeast, and did what I've written- it cures it. The local butcher/meat processor here gave us meats and bones they were throwing away, and the local dairy gave us the out-of-date milk/yogurt/cottage cheese, and we crushed Acidilophus pills and added to the food. Health improved dramatically, and we keep all our dogs on this diet now, (only using the tea for ailments if they get any). The processed foods made for critters does damage their balance- dogs rarely eat grains, veg in wild- they do eat some fruit, bark berries, raw meat and bones.

I have a 10 year old SharPei and German Shepherd mix. Two breeds known for skin issues. She's had seasonal allergies her whole life but this year has been especially bad. We've always dealt with her yeast issues with predisone - but steroids are not only bad for the animal, they lose effectiveness over time. The yeast and allergies has been compounded over the last couple years due to hypothyroidism. Sandy dog is having a rough year. She currently has a yeast infection on her skin that I just can't seem to beat. I had it almost cleared up using Malaseb shampoo, but then we went to the beach for a week and she was wet all the time and it came back. So, here we go again. The poor dear hates the baths, but it seems to help the itching immediately. I switched her food to Blue Wilderness this week and I'm going to start giving her the acidophilus supplement. She gets yogurt, but not every day. Guess we'll change that too. And no more human scraps. Anyway, I wanted to share that the Malaseb shampoo really does work. We've also used Be Soothed tea tree oil shampoo in the past - it works fine on lesser yeast infections. OH, and this will seem weird - but if you have spot yeast infections in the armpit or around the genital area you might try generic monistat cream its usually miconazole cream. You can find it in the drug store. It works awesome for killing the yeast. Unfortunately, for the whole dog, it would be rather messy and expensive. lol

What does knowing your dog have to do with diagnosing a dog yeast infection? Here's an example... Even if the yeast infection is not contagious to humans or other pets, you will need to treat your dog as soon as you get a clear diagnosis. The yeast infection can be a source of a lot of discomfort and the dog can scratch to the point of causing open wounds.

Life Extension reported on the use of tea tree oil in eradicating yeast infection: "Studies found that the antifungal properties of tea tree oil lie in its ability to disrupt the yeast cell wall." If your dog is flopping its ears, shaking its head, rubbing its ears with its paws, scratching at its ears, or rubbing its ears on furniture and rugs, it may have an ear infection. Check for a pinkish brown residue inside. The colored residue is a symptom of a yeast or fungal infection. Tea tree oil, which comes from the Melaluca tree, has been proven effective in veterinary use for yeast and fungal infections.
