Q. We think my cat has a fungal & yeast infection in his nail beds. Pemphigus ruled out. Wondering what your recommended method of treatment would be?
DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM
A. Your vet can determine whether it is a fungal infection (yeast is a fungus), or bacterial infection or an allergy. If he is not sure about the procedures you should ask him for a referral to a veterinary dermatologist. A clear concise diagnosis is necessary to treat successfully. If it is indeed a yeast infection there are prescription medicines and shampoos to treat with.
