Recent Yeast Infection questions

My wheaten terrier is 5 now is is having major hot spots.

Hello, my wheaten terrier is 5 now is is having major hot spots. May have a fungal yeast infection. Chews at paw, his underside around his penis and inner thighs are covered in now black yeasty bumps or scabs.I switche vets recently after being dissatisfied with antibiotic rounds that were not getting rid of problem. Every time Tahoe came back from being groomed, he would have another skin issue. I recently switched to a raw food diet thinking that would help and I now have a holistic vet. We are working on it but I'd love your opinion.Allison

I have an 8 month old golden retriever male that has this

I have an 8 month old golden retriever male that has this nasty area on his tail. He is allergic to grains and has been on a no grain food since he was 4 months old and was doing well until he got an yeast infection a couple months ago from being on so much antibiotics from scratching and biting the sores that was caused from the regular food he was on when we got him. Got all that cleared up then this spot on his tail showed up last week and it just kept spreading it has no odor or any wetness to it and it didn't seam to bother him at all it would just get crusty flaky brown stuff on it and be blood red after that was cleaned off. I took him to the vet today and he shaved the area to get a better look and still can't tell me what it is. Just told me to continue doing what I am and to use this douxo mousse on it twice daily. I'm just trying to figure out what it is and hoping u can help

I just took my dog to the vet this morning, and she was diagnosed with a yeast infection in her ear. She was prescribed miconazole ear drops, and an ear wash. She is so miserable and keeps shaking her every few seconds. I was just wondering how long it will take the yeast medication to start working? How long after using the miconazole should I use the ear wash (or vice versa)?

I just noticed my dog has a spongy substance on her toenail. I thought it was dirt last night but today realize it isn't. Any idea what it could be? It is on top of her toenail and goes all the way back to her foot (where the toenail begins).

I have a 2 y/o male boxer brindle with bumps I his legs and the edges of his trunk, onto the bare area on his pelvis and I top of his head. He has had skin problems in the past, so we did not worry right as they came up since he has had a history of skin problems, but they do not seem to be getting better. They've been present now about 1.5 weeks. I also have a 5 year old boxer who has not gotten them & he has been checked for fleas closely and hasn't missed a flea treatment, therefore I do not believe it to be fleas or anything contagious. He doesn't itch them. No change in activity/intake. Very happy and outgoing.

I can hear it across the room.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: his name is ***** ***** he is 8 months old no

My Dog has been none stop licking and biting his paw to the point where there is fur missing. He can walk without any issues, but when he lays down he starts licking. I have tried tying it but it has not stopped him. Ive checked to see if there was anything stuck in there (wood, stone, even tick) I have not seen anything. I originally thought the issue was in-between his two middle "toes" but the part that has turned refer and chunks of fur missing is right on top of that

Please help me! I just moved to a new state and am having a

Please help me! I just moved to a new state and am having a very difficult time finding a caring Veterinarian for my beautiful Boxer girl, Summer. She is 8 yrs old, has always been healthy and is my best friend and helper dog as i am disabled. We need on another desperately. I am trying to sell my home and move back to my old state/area so I can get her old Vet back again. He cared more about her than his bottom dollar.Now her issue which seemed to pop up over night. I wash her face frequently with a warm wash rag with just water on it. Last night, as I was washing her face, the skin on the right side of her face, her cheek area just below her nose started to bleed in three tiny spots and her skin just came away so easily. It frightened me because i know that Boxers are prone to skin cancer. If i were to take some pictures , close ups of the area would you be able to tell me more of what it might be?I would appreciate any help you could give at this point. My search for a Vet continues but I have not found one yet. Thank you for your time, Summers, Mom, Ellen S. Robison
