We just started my dog on bendril. We haven't found out what is going on. She will cry because she hurts, and itches a lot.
Try monistat 3 vaginal yeast infection 4% cream for women. It comes in a 3 pack. Put this cream on as many times as you can all day and night. Use the anti itch cream too as it works wonders. I use sometimes 2 packs of this to get rid of the infection but it does work. Also i give her benadryl pills at the first sign and this along with the cream works for her. She is a 100lb dog. Call your vets office and they will tell you how much benadryl tablets to give your dog by weight.
I give her the pills for about a week. I hate to give her pills but she really needs something. My dog has yeast infections in her paws and only antibiotics help and i decided to try other methods. She has been on allergy shots for years and had success till i decided to take her off them cause i felt she had been on the shots long enough. Now she has infections every 3 weeks. I was told that dogs are not like humans and they need to be on the shots for life! At this point i need to consider if the shots are worth pumping into her body when she is still having infections. I tried the one doze vaginal yeast infection cream this time but have only caused the infection to itch more and now I am back to the 3% cream and it is doing a good job. After one day of that and benadryl pills (3 or 4) 2 times a day she has not licked herself at all.
I am going to try the cider vinegar today as i have never done this before. Good luck!
Thank you for your replies. Yes, my yorkie was diagnosed with a yeast allergy by a skin test done by a vet. Therefore I really need to be careful with any foods that has yeast in it. She is not food allergic but is itchy, and her skin is pinky/red.
THe itch is usually more on her paws and ears.
Would love a recipe for homecooking for her.
Go to www.dirtdoctor.com he will give you all the help you need. Also go to the lotion dept at Walmart. The Aloe Vera lotion works great for putting it on the dog's skin where it has broken out.
My 3 year Yorkie had a skin test and was diagnosed with yeast allergy. Her skin and ears are extremely pink (almost red) My vet put her on Sporonax 100mg and Vanectyl P which is Prednisone. I am not happy with her having all these medications in her. She is not food allergic, I was feeding her Natural Balance Duck and Potato and have now switched her to a canned food without grains. This has been going on for a long time without much results and much money spent. She becomes lethargic on the medications. I am at my wits end and very depressed over all of this, in addition to feeling so bad for my little 12 pound dog. Can anyone out there maybe help me in my situation. Would also like to home cook for her so need a good recipe. Also she is itchy especially on her paws.
