Treatment fungal skin infections dogs
What is yeast: Yeast happily live on most normal skin, in ears, anal glands, between toes and on muzzles. Yeast in small normal numbers are harmless but when the yeasts are present in large numbers, disease results.
Hair loss, redness, hyperpigmentation (blackening of the skin), and thickening of the skin may also be present. Yeast infections are especially itchy, crusty, and smelly. Often a dog starts with a rash or with simple itching but the skin thickens to an elephant skin appearance. The itch is extreme and the odor can be especially troublesome. Parts of the body or the entire body can be affected.
Treatment of the Underlying cause: It is important to realize that yeast overgrowth occurs in response to a primary problem be it allergy, seborrhea or something else. If the underlying problem is not controlled, yeast dermatitis is likely to periodically recur. Yeast infections are not contagious.
To help prevent yeast infections, and to help minimize chronic yeast issues in pets - use a healthy, low-grain/grain-free diet as the conversion of grain carbohydrate to sugar supplies food that feed yeast. Probiotic supplements provide additional beneficial bacteria to your dogs diet which will help to boost the immune systems response to harmful bacteria. Avoid foods containing corn or wheat, by-products, chemical preservatives, or in some cases soy, depending on the cause of the dogs allergy. It may also be advisable to change to a single-source protein diet and treats to eliminate any protein allergy. Environmental allergies may also be a factor.
