My puppy is itchy and has a bit of a yellow discharge in her

Customer Question

My puppy is itchy and has a bit of a yellow discharge in her vaginal area? Could it be yeast infection? She has been on antibiotics for several weeks of her life due to kennel cough and worms.

This yellow discharge could potentially be a yeast infection in the puppy. Hard to determine with antibiotic usage for kennel cough and worms. The antibiotics can kill the normal flora (good bacteria) in vaginal area causing a yellow discharge. My advice would be to keep an eye on the area and keep it clean. I wouldn't seek medical attention unless the situation worsens. I hope this helps if you have any further questions let me know. If you are satisfied with this answer please consider giving me a positive rating. Thanks

Ok great. I have been giving her a little plain yogurt every day. Is that OK?
Expert:  cky389 replied 9 months ago.

Yes that should help as well! I would stick to plain yogurt though and make sure you aren't giving anything with fruit or a lot of sugars.
