Our dog has a balding patch on his lips. When I first noticed it, it was bumpy and red. There was a welt as well. When the welt opened while pussy stuff came out of it. Could this be from a yeast infection? How should I treat it? Is there anything I can do naturally? The inflamed look has finally passed and his hair is beginning to slowly come back in. But it's not completely healed yet.

My cocker spaniel has just that on the corners of her mouth. The vet said it is due to folds at the corners of her mouth being to moist. I have been using recommended medicated wipes, however it doesn't seem to clear up, it improves but doesn't disappear. Yeast was what my vet described it as. I was hoping to find similar stories with better solutions online somewhere.

Since I started only about two weeks ago I can not tell yet if he is improving or not. I switched him from Eukanuba to Healthwise Adult and changed all his treats to grain and corn free. As mentioned earlier on the www. nzymes.com are suggestion what to feed a dog with yeast infection, which foods are o.k. and which are not. I will make another post here when I start to see improvement on my dog. I learned that it might take several months to get rid of the yeast infection, so I don't expect miracles in just few weeks of using the nzymes products. I hope you will find this info useful and I wish you all and your dogs with GI problems or yeast infection good luck.

My dog has a yeast infection on his paws and on his mouth too. I switched his diet and started him on nzymes treats and probiotics.

To Candace, with the Westies. Try Hill's Presription diet z/d food in low allergen. I had the same problem with my chow mix and after a year of every test, it turned out to be a combination of a protein allergy and IBS. The food worked within a week and he is healthy and happy now.

I have two Westies - (ages 4 and 5 yrs.) One has had GI problems for half of his life - constant diarrhea - I have worked with several vets trying to find someone who can help improve his quality of life. I have tried raw food diets - pumpkin - high quality food (Evo) - prescription food - - he has been on Flagyl for 2 years - we've tried steriods -probiotics -prebiotics - NOTHING has helped this litte guy. His weight is dropping - does anyone have any suggestions?

My dog was diagnosed by the vet with a yeast infection on the side of his mouth. He is a mix with lab dominate. It appears as dark patches on the outside of his lip where they overlap. We have tried everything to get rid of it with no success. You can actually wipe pieces of it off with a towel and it will be back the next day. We are trying to find a cure as well. We have tried lamisil and several recommentdations. So far nothing has worked.

The article is fine. However, my dog has the yeast infection at the side of his mouth and we have tried apple cider vinegar and lamisil per the vets instruction and neither has worked. We wash and apply twice a day for two months. Any, advice on how to cure this infections.

I have a three year old English Bull Terrier who has been plagued with chronic yeast infections. His feet, under arms, space between his abdomen and belly and genitals are where the infection was most noticeable. He is now almost cleared up.


Went to the vet and was prescribed antibiotic and ketaconozole (sp). This helped briefly. One month later and the yeast was
back.

I changed my dog's food from Pedigree to Innova Evo red meat formula. Innova Evo is low in grain and carbohydrates. Your dog doesn't need much of those. I never heard of a wolf eating cereal, so a dog doesn't need it
either.

I began giving him coconut oil which kills yeast. He is up to four tablespoons a day. Be careful as it can cause loose stools. I also give him a half teaspoon twice a day of Solgar Multi-Acidophilus powder. He showed improvement in a week. His case was so severe that he had seizures. Hope this helps.

We have a 3 year old cockapoo that had a strong smell to her when we got her in August. She had a double ear infection and she chewed on her paws. I researched and learned of a yeast infection that dogs get and the vet prescribed a shampoo for her. The ear infection is gone and the chewing has lessened greatly but I could still smell that awful smell and noticed that the it was coming from her mouth. The smell is the same as the ears and the paws so can I assume that she has the same thing around her mouth? The hair around her mouth is discolored also. She does not want me to touch the mouth area but the vet suggested that we wash the mouth area with the shampoo they already
prescribed.

Any suggestions? One side is crumbling but the other side is not
budging.

Appreciate any tips.....thanks
