In many cases, these uncomfortable symptoms are the result of yeast dermatitis in dogs, a condition caused by the abnormal overgrowth of yeast which is found normally on your pup's skin. Today we look at the signs, causes, and treatments for yeast infections in dogs.

Ticks are spreaders of serious diseases; therefore, they are a preeminent threat to pets and their owners.
