Does My Dog Have a Yeast Infection?

An overgrowth of yeast which leads to a yeast infection is common in dogs. Yeast infections in dogs are usually associated with the ear and characterized by wax residue and scabbing around the ear. Yeast is really a symptom of what can be a variety of possible underlying conditions and causes.

Causes of Yeast Infections in Dogs:

  • Allergies
  • Bacterial infection
  • Poor diet
  • Gut imbalance
  • Overuse of prescriptions or antibiotics

When it comes to dog yeast infections, if you look even deeper it is likely that yeast overgrowth is coming from a poor diet, overuse of antibiotics or other substances which harm gut ecology.

Symptoms of Dog Yeast Infections

  • Excessive rubbing of the ears or tilting of the head
  • Waxy residue and scabbing around the opening of the ear
  • Scabby, or reddened skin anywhere on body
  • Yellow, or bloody discharge
  • Unusual Odor
  • Hair loss around the ear
  • Appearance of Disorientation; loss of balance, hearing, walking in circles

It may be difficult to recognize if your dog has a yeast infection. Any dog can get a yeast infection, however, yeast infections are most common in female dogs. With the modern dog food diet, more and more dogs have come victim to yeast infections due to poor digestion and gut condition.

How to Help

Taking your dog to the vet may be necessary in this case, but will most likely result in a prescription or antibiotics. In many cases this can be avoided and may be better for your dog's long term wellness.

For avoiding yeast infetions, the answer is generally very simple. The balance of healthy bacteria needs to be established in your dog's body, in the gut, because yeast is an overgrowth due to too much harmful bacteria. The answer is probiotics, probiotics, and more probiotics! Probiotics are very effective in preventing and addressing yeast infection problems in dogs.

To go one step further, if your dog's yeast problem is associated or accompanied by allergies, you may want to add a digestive enzyme supplement to his meals. Certain enzymes are great for targeting yeast and fungus breakdown within the body. Other enzymes assist the digestion process, removing the possibility that putrifying food is causing bacteria or yeast overgrowth in the dog's body.

This process will keep putrifying food from lingering longer in the dog's body, thus causing further yeast and bacteria issues.
