The vet gave us some medicines for Angels ear and private spot and the meds just make her turn red and it looks like it burns! So last week my pool got filled with water (it is salt water) and yesterday and today my poodle jumped in the pool and it is starting to clear up! Is the salt water drying out the yeast or how is this happening? Oh and what kind of medicines can i use on her? Where can I get the medicines and how much do they cost? Please help me out here! thanks! The poodle owner and the poodle
mypoodle: yeast infection medication takes time to heal the infection...just like in people, it gets worse before it gets better. I don't think using salt/salt water to clear it up is a very good idea, just stick with the medication and it should get better within 3-4 days.

Keep the hair out of their ears. If you are buying dog food at WM or the grocery store it has probably got brewers dried yeast in it. Get a better food that has no yeast, corn, wheat, by-products, artificial preservatives or dyes
what kind of pool has salt water in it? anyway, take her to the vet, you need some antifungals, and your vet may possibly recommend some OTC anti-itch cream commonly used for yeast infections, however, you MUST see your vet before administering any medication to your dog. Lola was put on a flush for her ears once a day, and an antibiotic that was put directly into her ears twice a day. Didn't have to deal with the hootie-hoo yeast, though, sorry. Maybe some plain yogurt will help her out...lol
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of thier dreams.
Salt water tends to heal up any skin issues on my sons face too. If I recall, same for me as a teen. Just curious, Being its yeast, what color is it. I have not dealt with yeast. My friend though is going thru some horrid problems with her cocker. Her vet has put them thru the ringer. We told her to knock off the hills products, and try a one protein, one grain kibble. As alot of you know food can be the main culprit. I can not wait to hear how her dog is in a week or two.
Whoever said you can't buy happiness, must have never owned a dog!!!!!!!!!!!
where is the yeast infection-ears, skin? yeast don't treat with antibodic if you can help that. when a dog comes to me to be groomed with yeast on the skin i wash hin in malaseb shampoo [from vet] if has to be gently scrubed into the skin and leave on 10 mins to skin the yeast. rinse and apply a leave in conditioner because malaseb can be over drying to the skin. then this is the key you must wash the dogs every 2-3 days doing the same thing because the yeast will begin to grow again on the skin again. then wean the shampoos down to every 4 days then 6 days then 14 days to 1 time a month--meanwhile, while you are shampooing you should be addressing the diet issue --corn wheat soy grains feed yeast get on a great diet [i like solid gold dog food ] get on a regular grooming schedule with a good groomer who uses a silcone, sls, and oil free shampoos and conditioner. Make sure to dry the fur don't leave damp or yeast will grow but don't over dry the skin just the fur. good luck
