Hello. Does anyone have some ideas to rid a dog of a yeast infection on a paw?
Thanks in advance

Yeast infection on dogs is like athlete's foot on human. I've had great success with product with tolnaftate 1% like tanactin or absorbine jr. I find Tinactin is easier to apply cause it is in spay. Apply 2 to 3 times a day for 2 weeks..
It worked for me!!

Soaks in Epson Salt solution will do wonders. As it is cheap avaiable over the counter, fill the tub with a couple inches of water and have your dog standing in it for 5 to 10 min. Solution mix according to package. Also good for hot/lick spots between the toes.

Vicks Vaporub cures toenail fungus, which is what athlete's foot is, (my guess is the main working ingredients would be eucalyptus and camphor, one could make a tincture.) Cured my nail fungus!

For my dogs I use Condy's Crystals, workes well it's cheap and a small bottle will last for years

Hibbiscrub, it's what surgeons use before operating etc. Available from chemists, a bottle lasts a very long time so it's pretty good value. Dilute well with water and immerse each paw for a couple of mins, rinse & dry.

How many times and how long do you apply the Vicks vaporub?

Hi Teri, I rubbed it in every night for at least a couple weeks, mainly because of the strong scent. My nail actually felt better immediately, so I kept applying it, and once my nail became strong again, I sort of stopped, and I am happy to say, I am still fungus free.
For a dog, I see no reason why you couldn't just rub it on whenever you felt like it, at least twice a day? I don't think there are any downsides to Vicks Vaporub, except the smell, and hopefully that will be a lick deterrent as well. Can't guarantee it though!

Is it something you can see on their paws? My two lick and nibble at their paws regularly but I don't see anything??

My boyfriends English Bull dog has been chewing on his paws and they look different so I'm thinking his paws must have a yeast infection. I am going to try the remedies on him. :o)
