    Default Yeast infection in eye folds

    My dog Red has tear stains which I had under control until recently. He is also licking at his paws.

    He now has a yeast infection and I have tried Monistat which doesn't seem to be helping. Does anyone have any good recommendations for clearing up yeast?

    Thank you
    Sue

    I think apple cider vinegar in the drinking water or as a cleanser will help. Use raw and unfiltered. I think a lot of our dogs are getting itchy paws with the changing seasons. We have been doing Epsom salt bath soaks.

    Sounds like an allergy. What food is your dog eating?

    If the infection is really bad, you may need to see a vet for stronger meds, like Animax ointment. You could try cleaning with witch hazel, give it a few mins to dry then apply some desitin (baby ointment) to see if it helps. But once yeast takes over, you need stronger meds. What are you feeding? That could be the cause? Or environmental depending on where you live.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
