Yeast Infection on a Dog's Paw

There is a yeast infection between my dog's toes. How do I cure it and prevent it in the future? The antibiotics are not helping.

Yeast Infection on a Dog's Paw

For yeast infections try a solution of vinegar and water, clean the area several times a day with this solution. If the dog licks the area vinegar will not harm him. Try to keep the area as dry as possible. Yeast needs moisture to grow, it grows in an alkaline condition, reason why vinegar (which is acid) just might do the trick. Plain old vinegar is useful for so many things. (08/25/2010)

If he were my doggie, I'd put plain yogurt on his paws, and feed him about 4 ounces of plain yogurt every day until it clears up. It's the most simple remedy I know for yeast infections in our pets.
Good luck. (08/25/2010)

Please nobody follow jilson's advice! Those topical creams for women's yeast infections are just that, topical! They are not intended to be ingested, and your dog will lick it's paws. The only suggestions I saw on here that were logical were the yogurt and the vinegar. One of my dogs also has a yeast infection on one of her paws. I will be trying first the yogurt, then if that doesn't work I'll try the vinegar. But using the topical creams could make her very sick. Can you imagine ingesting the cream yourself? (08/26/2010)

Antibiotics will kill bacteria, not yeast. The best yeast defense is plain yogurt and it will not harm your dog if licked off. Plain yogurt is so amazing at curing yeast infections, but most people think they need to pay for something special! (08/26/2010)
