    Default Labrador with Yeast problem

    My 10 year old lab has most symptoms for a yeast infection. Itchy rear end, chin, paws and ears. Have been to the vet and they prescribed some chlorhexidine spray. Did not seem to work. Wondering if anyone has had the same problem with yeast and their dog. If so, what did you do or supplement used to correct the problem? Has anyone fed an over the counter anti-yeast pill that women use for their dog? Any advice would be appreciated.

    My lab goes on ears drops and prednizone(sic) every year for red itchy ears and paws.
    Takes a few days to work and hes fine for the rest of the season.

    our lab had that in paws and mouth area, apparently it was his food we switched it and no more issues

    For the ears - one of my previous dogs had 5 ear infections before she was 18 months. Someone suggested Zymox. Treatment for one week cleared it and then we proactively used it once per month after that. Never had another infection after that. I (and now my breeder too) swear by it

    If you don't mind me asking warningshot what food did you switch to? Do you think it was a grain problem or chicken allergy?

    vet said it was a chicken allergy, they would get a rustly colour in the toes and creese of mouth , we fed our both dogs a lab and american bulldog iams , we switched and tried a few brands performitrin, pc dog food costco and a couple other but ended up with purina pro plan lamb and rice

    Isn't that interesting.... a rusty color.

    Are you sure it's not an allergic reaction?
    my senior lab ate chicken based kibble for years and one day at the age of 5 he was allergic. since switching his food he has had way less ear problems and no itchy paws or snout

    Hello DanE

    I am thinking that it could quite possibly be a food allergy. Warningshot mentioned a chicken allergy and switched foods and problem solved. My dog has been on the same food for years so never thought that the food was 100% the solution. I do know switching foods can cause problems also so have refrained. What food/ brand DanE did you switch to?

    my dogs have always eaten ProPlan
    Big Wes went from chicken and rice to Salmon. all problems seem to have fixed since the switch. He's an XL American Field Lab and probably the biggest I've seen hight wise. The Puppy (now 2) is in adult food and doesn't seem to care what he eats typical Lab
