Is there such a thing as an anal infection? How do I know if my symptoms are from an anal yeast infection, a vaginal yeast infection or something else? My friend told me my dog might have a canine anal gland infection? Is this serious?
Anal Infection Often Associated with STDs
According to the Manual of Dermatologic Therapeutics, an anal infection in men, as related to sexually transmitted diseases, is usually associated with anal intercourse in homosexuals. It was also reported that half of women with gonorrhea contracted anal infections. In both of these occurrences, an anal infection was said to be almost exclusively asymptomatic, with the exception of anal itching and possible discharge from the anus.
Anal infections also have a strong correlation with HPV (human papillomavirus) infections.
Is Your Dog or Cat Suffering from an Anal Gland Infection?
Anal glands, which are distinctive to almost all carnivores, are small sacs situated on either side of the anus. It is important for pet owners to be aware of possible disorders, including anal gland infection, which can cause much discomfort for dogs and cats.
Anal glands, often called scent glands, allow a dog to mark its territory. An anal infection in one or both glands is usually bacterial and must be treated to avoid complications.
Anal Yeast Infection or Something Else?
Like all other yeast infections, an anal yeast infection is the result of an overproduction of fungus in the area of the anus or rectum. Although anal yeast infections are less common than vaginal or male yeast infections, they are no less troublesome. The gastrointestinal tract is, in fact, an ideal environment in which yeast can thrive.
If you have excessive itching in the anal area, it is important to obtain a proper diagnosis. Similar symptoms can be caused by anal fissures, hemorrhoids or parasitic infections (ie. pinworm).
Guardian Silver Sol for All Types of Anal Infections
Whether you are researching a natural treatment for an anal infection, an anal yeast infection or an anal gland infection in your pet, Guardian Silver Sol can help alleviate the symptoms by destroying the offending fungus. First and foremost, however, consult your health care provider for a proper diagnosis.
Guardian Silver Sol is a powerful anti-fungal, antibacterial agent that can kill microbes within minutes of contact. Take 1-2 tsp of Guardian each morning and night. Spraying silver sol often on the affected area is also recommended. In addition, one ounce of silver sol can also be used as an enema or rectal cleanse to detoxify the anus and colon (please note that this last suggestion is not a canine remedy).
