I have not heard back from you but did want to leave my thoughts about Dharma's situation.
First, I do have to note that AZO is not used in dogs and there is no established safe dose or known effectiveness (or toxicity risks) for this. Therefore, we’d not want to put her at risk with this. And while I would note that there are anti-yeast treatments that you can ring your vet for (which they likely will dispense since she was recently seen for this and if they share your concern) , I do have to warn you that if yeast is suspect, we do need to tread with care.
The reason is because vaginal yeast infections
in adult dogs is often a secondary issue of another health based problem. This could be a focal bacterial infection in the vagina as well or a bladder infection. But it can also arise if she has ongoing systemic issues (ie diabetes
, cushing’s disease
, etc) or even related to a tumor in the vagina. Therefore, these types of situations are rarely straight forward and often they are a sign that the dog is immuno-weak due to another issue (and the yeast are taking advantage). And that means even if we do just treat the yeast, there is a serious risk that that may not stop the problem and we’d need to instead target the primary underlying issue.
Therefore, in this case, if she isn’t responding to the antibiotics (which are for bacteria), you really do want to discuss this with her vet. If they suspect one of those other underlying issues, we may need to pinpoint that first for her. Otherwise, if the vaginal infection is the main concern, then it’d be ideal to have a vaginal swab collected and then sent for culture (or some vets can analyse the sample in their practice). If it were to go for culture, this would confirm the presence of yeast but also check for bacteria (and sensitivity would tell us what those were vulnerable to). And that would tell you what was present and therefore guide you on properly treating it to clear this for her.
Overall, in regards ***** ***** question, AZO is not recommended for dogs. That said, if yeast is thought to be the main issue, then your vet can dispense and oral treatment to help this. But again, do be careful since often yeast in an adult dog isn’t a primary issue and instead a red flag that something is affecting her immune system such that this fungus is able to overgrow and cause signs itself.
Please take care,
