Canine Pharmacognosy – Fungal Infection

Caroline Ingraham Animal Chronicles

Buster had been suffering for a long time with a fungal infection. When he came to see Caroline he was on his way back from the vets. He had been on a drip for three days. Diagnosis was inconclusive, but allergies were suspected. He did not respond to German chamomile which is often selected for allergies, instead he selected green clay. Within eight minutes his skin had calmed to a pink colour from the bright red at the start. Clay was applied over the next few days and the condition completely cleared.
