What is this?

Postby Deniselynn » Mon Oct 15, 2007 8:38 pm

I know dogs don't sweat but when I feel Molly's chest and undercarriage, she is wet and there is a slight odour. She basically has no fur in that area. Any ideas as to what causes her to "sweat"?

Ah, you're asking me to use my digi camera? lol I don't know why but I hate taking pics. There really isn't anything to show. The area isn't red, it's just feels moist. That is a better word for it. I have been using Tuck's medicated pads and it is helping.

It could be a yeast infection, esp. if it's smelly.
Maybe pick up some baby wipes and wipe it down daily.

Thanks Yvette. The Tuck's pads are working really good.

it could be yeast like msvette said.... have you tried acidopholus powder in her food to help with the yeast?

No I haven't. I assume I can get that in a health food store? How much should I give? I didn't know that helps.

its EXPENSIVE for a small 4 inch tall bottle..make sure its the Live acidopholus powder.. plain kind.. you have to refrigerate it or the bacteria will die.. jesse gets a 1/4 teaspoon in her food once a day and her ass went from BLACK and yeasty to now pink and no yeast... it took a few weeks, but it works...

youre welcome!


ACIDOPHILUS
This is a powder form of the normal, friendly bacteria that live in our intestines (called flora). Our intestinal flora helps regulate our digestion and stool patterns. Yeast also lives in our intestines. The yeast and the bacterial flora are constantly competing for space, and generally they keep each other in check. Sometimes, however, our bacterial flora can get depleted, such as when taking antibiotics. This allows the yeast to overgrow, which can then lead to a variety of problems:

awesome!! just make sure its the real deal... it is going to be expensive.. and, they should be keeping it in the refrigerator.. if they take it off the shelf dont use it.. you want it to be taken out of the refrigerator, as that means the bacteria is alive and active...
