Yeast Infection

A yeast infection is caused by a yeast called Candida albicans. Candida albicans is an opportunistically yeast that normally inhabits the body and intestinal tract of our dogs. The job of candida albicans is to recognize and destroy harmful bacteria. In a healthy body, candida albicans is controlled by a properly-functioning immune system and "friendly" bacteria.

However, if the immune system is weakened, the number of friendly bacteria decreases, and candida albicans will shift from yeast form (a non-invasive, sugar-fermenting organism) to fungal form (invasive, mucosa damaging) - the yeast infection starts.
Yeast infection symptoms can hit all parts of the dog skin and the mucous membranes but humid places are the preferred area.

Symptoms for a yeast infection are itchy scalp, skin rashes, inflamed pimples with flaky edge.

A yeast infection can breake through in two different types:

Primary yeast infection happens if the ill-making yeast
bacteria strike healthy dog skin and the dogs immune system cannot resist them. The yeast infection is caused by contaminated items or other dogs.

Secondary yeast infection results from penetration of yeast into skin that is damaged by scratching or injuries. Thus, constantly scratching dogs are prone to yeast infections!

  • Skin rashes can be the result of external or internal parasites. So, keep your dog parasite free to prevent yeast infection.
  • Frequently bathing the dog dries out the natural oils in the dog skin and stimulates steady scratching, this creates yeast infection.
  • Poor nutrition, vitamin and mineral deficiency leads to skin rashes and resulting yeast infection.

Other factors that increase yeast infection:

A therapy should start at the roots of the yeast infection, your dogs immune system. Many times it is not necessary at all to use prescription medicines.
Feed your dog a well-balanced natural diet. Avoid commercial dog foods, carbohydrates, preservatives, and other artificial fillers.
Keep your dog dry after swimming, bathing, and walks in the rain.

Topical treatments are not effective in most cases, because dogs lick them off.
