Staphylococcus Infections in Dogs and Cats

Staphylococcus Infections in Dogs and Cats

Herbal nutrition for dogs and cats to relieve and prevent the Staphylococcus infection.

Nutrition plays a major role in skin and bone health. Healthy skin and bones are a result of a well-functioning, synchronized effort by the immune system, tissues and organs in the body, and plant botanicals provide skin support, help to maintain the skin’s ability to withstand and repair the effects of topical skin wounds, scars, burns, environmental exposure to toxins and bacterial antigens and microorganisms.

Bacteria are single cell organisms that reproduce by dividing and include both good and bad forms of bacteria. Good bacteria benefits your pet’s health and environment, whereas, harmful bacteria, which is related to only about 1% of all types of bacteria, can cause serious illness and infection. When pets develop a bacterial infection that is left untreated, it can lead to more severe health complications.

The Staphylococcus bacteria can live in a variety of environments, including on the skin of a dog or cat and in the upper respiratory tract of animals.

Staphylococcal infection is caused by Staphylococcus bacteria. It affects both dogs and cats and is spread between animals and can be spread to humans. This infection can be found in any breed of dog or cat and at any age.

Symptoms/signs of a bacterial infection include:



Skin abscess

Wound infections

Infections of the skin, eyes, ears, urinary tract or respiratory system



Loss of appetite

Pus filled lesions (pyoderma)

Itching (pruritus)


Runny nose or eyes



Pain and discomfort

Lethargy and weakness

Young dogs and cats are at risk due to developing immune systems whereas older dogs and cats are also at risk due to under performing immune systems. Other causes can include bacterial or fungal infections (pathogens) of the blood, chronic debilitating diseases that weaken the immune system, allergies, and other secondary infections.
