Re: Pseudomonas, Enterococcus, & Staph Bacteria vagina

Yes, I found out the hard way of knowing that Bella should also be taking some Probioitics...... wasn't fun. Since Tues, her area looks a lot better. BUT as we have learned.... will be giving her the meds for sometime!!! Also cleaning her up after she goes to the bathroom too... maybe that is helping. Thank you for all of the posts...

Re: Pseudomonas, Enterococcus, & Staph Bacteria vagina

I think it is a good idea to clean her up, perhaps she is having a problem keeping herself clean- that could contribute to the infection. My Golden had issues with that when she got older, she had severe spinal spondylosis so she could not curve her spine much and was not able to keep the area around the vulva clean, which resulted in irritation. My vet recommended Malacetic wipes, which are a type of vet wipe which is safe to use around sensitive areas.

Did your Dog Bella got cured?

My dog Ronja has the same condition as your Bella had. We live in Finland. I hope you are still reading this forum. Did your Bella got cured with those antibiotic injektions? they are thinking about same treatment to my dog. Im so worried that i will lose her because they say its really rare to have pseudomonas bacteria in vulva. There is not many options what to do. Please if you have any advice or have same experience with your dog please write. My dog is now 4.5year old. She is the best dog i have ever had and we are a team together. I cant bare the thought about losing her now as she is still so young and full of energy. I will do everythign for her.

Took her to see the vet yesterday. Will try another round of the meds for a week. Will take her back to look at and either continue or try something new. My question is... has anyone else had expererience with these kinds of bacterial? Our vet tells us that it is common for dogs to get bacteria infections in their ears and he has seen some cases like Bella's. Any help, insight, suggestions, etc would be very helpful!

My 7yo GSD, Tika, has struggled with an ongoing pseudomonas infection in her vulva area for 3 years. She sees a dermatolgist & has been on expensive antibiotics (Zenequin) on and off for better part of 2yrs. in addition to topicals (Silver Spray, Silversulfadiazine, Mal-a-ket, etc). Every time we took her off Zenequin, infection returned within weeks. A few months ago, I got fed up with return of the sores and her living in a cone. I ordered Vetericyn VF Hydrogel and began applying 2X daily. The sores cleared up and signs of infection are gone. This is the first topical that I've used that actually cleared up the infection without the combined use of ABX. Told my Vet Derm what I did and he said he is unsure how this works but to go ahead and keep using it if it is doing the job. It is a miracle to me.

Neem oil would also be good for such an infection

Also Vit C and cranberry extract given with food is very good for Uti's

Also if you want to increase a dogs water intake add chicken broth to the water
