My Maltipoo was diagnosed about 3 weeks ago with a yeast
My Maltipoo was diagnosed about 3 weeks ago with a yeast infection and a bacterial infection. She was prescribed yeast pills and 250 milligrams of Keflex twice a day for three weeks. This was a substitute doctor so I took her to her regular doctor the next day and was told not to give her the Catholics but to continue with the yeast pills. It's been two weeks so i've quit giving her the yeast pills and this morning I awaken to see that she had one eye that was almost closed. I took her to her regular vet today and was prescribed antibiotic cream for her eye because there was a bacterial infection. I am now wondering if its possible that the bacterial infection that she was diagnosed with three weeks ago has spread to her eye. Is that possible? If so should I get her on the keflex tonight.
My dog has what seems to be a rash of some sort that is
Hi, my dog has what seems to be a rash of some sort that is slowly spreading around the base of his scrotum. He has been dealing with allergies and yeast infections on his paws/underarms for about a month ago...the vet has given me antirobe and douxo chlorhexidine mousse to treat it. Everything has cleared up well, but this rash on his scrotum has persisted and actually gotten worse. The scrotum is red for the most part, and the skin is a big inflamed. It doesn't bother him if the skin is touched nor is he licking it very much.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations your dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Enzo, we believe he is about five years old but are not entirely sure as he is a rescue.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Enzo?Customer: Other than the antirobe and Duoxo mousse he is also on Temaril P which was also prescribed for his swelling due to the allergies and yeast infections. He's been on this regimen of medications for a week now.

My dog is sneezing a lot. This is new so I am assuming
My dog is sneezing a lot. This is new so I am assuming allergies. Can I give her an over the counter drug like Zyrtec and how much? She is a nineteen pound bichon. I haven't changed her food. She eats Science Diet CD for bladder stones (has for years) and is just finishing up 21 days on ketoconazole for a yeast infection. Poor thing. She was biting at a spot on her hind quarters and has created a sore spot.
