How Treat Aspergillosis In Dogs Naturally Through Ayurveda


Aspergillosis is a fungal infection caused by aspergillus fumigatus that is found worldwide and affects almost all domestic animals, birds, as well as wild species. Aspergillus fungus is present in the environment, and commonly found on food where it grows as lacy molds and results in easy exposure of animals and humans to the fungus and their spores but whose immune system is compromised or suppressed, easily gets affected with the fungus. It most commonly affects the nasal cavity and frontal sinuses of dogs. Although all breeds of dogs are susceptible, dogs with long noses are more prone to acquire the aspergillus fungal infection. Aspergillosis begins when the spores of fungus are inhaled by the susceptible dog; the spores develop an allergic reaction in some dogs, while in others the spores result in infection. Most infections are known to be localized in the nose but few can develop into serious lung infections.  It is a respiratory infection that gradually spreads throughout the body. The presentation of symptoms depends on the type of severity of fungal infection that ranges from bountiful nasal discharge to general weakness. Aspergillus fumigatus infection if left untreated is able to cause considerable damage. To know more about aspergillus fungal infection in dogs read the article ahead and get a well-informed outlook.


Aspergillosis fungal infection is the infection of the nasal cavity but may transmit throughout the body. Nasal infection is the commonest form in dogs and delicate bones of sinuses get destroyed. The less invasive form of nasal aspergillosis results in accumulation of fungus and mucus and is known as fungal plaque or aspergilloma. The dog will have a chronic nasal discharge, typically involving one nostril, with strong odor and sneezing, persistent for weeks to months, and will not respond to antibiotics. Dog owners will observe pawing at the nose or face. The fungus enters the body through the respiratory tract and travels via bloodstream to reach other organs resulting in more serious and systemic fungal infection.

Aspergillosis in Dogs


This disease is primarily identified in female German shepherd dogs. Aspergillosis infection is mainly caused by a fungus called Aspergillosis that is commonly found in dust, hay. grass, etc.. The nasal disease is commonly seen in outdoor dogs as they are exposed to the environment and substances containing Aspergillus fungus. The animal with a weak immune system, any lung disease, and asthma is at high risk of contracting the fungal infection. There are chances that you can contract aspergillus fungal infection from dogs but if you follow good personal hygiene, washing hands on handling the discharges.


The common signs and symptoms of nasal aspergillosis are as follows

  • Nasal discharge that can be green or cream in color
  • Bleeding from nose
  • Sneezing
  • Front of the nose may appear pale
  • Pawing at the nose or face


Aspergillosis appears clinically similar to a variety of other diseases like allergic rhinitis, nasal tumor, or foreign body in nasal passage. Followings tests are available for the diagnosis of the condition but have significant limitations:

  • Blood test to look for antibodies to the fungus (it may not be associate with active infection)
  • Lab test of the swab taken from nasal cavity
  • Rhinoscopy
  • X-ray, CT scan, or MRI

For the diagnostic imaging and rhinoscopy, the dog is given general anesthesia. It is somewhat difficult to diagnose systemic aspergillosis; patterns of bone destruction on imaging tests suggest fungal infection. Aspergillus fungus is visible in tissue samples in some cases; if it is not visible it may be cultured.
