Aspergillosis in Pets
Aspergillosis is an opportunistic fungal infection caused by the Aspergillus, a species of common mold found throughout the environment, including dust, straw, grass clippings, and hay. An opportunistic infection occurs when an organism which does not generally cause disease becomes an infectious agent once it has entered into an animal's body. In the case of Aspergillosis, it becomes an infectious agent when the body's immune system is weakened by some other disease or illness.
Symptoms of Nasal Aspergillosis (fungal) include sneezing, nasal pain, bleeding from the nose, reduced appetite, visibly swollen nose, and long-term nasal discharge from the nostril(s), which may contain mucus, pus and/or blood. In some cases, loss of pigment or tissue on the surface of the skin may also occur.
There are two (2) types of Aspergillus infections.
1. The first is the nasal form, where the infection is localized in the nasal passages and front sinuses. It is believed that this develops from direct nasal contact with the fungus. For example, if a cat is outside and around dust and grass clippings, the fungus may enter via the moist lining of the nose. Both types can affect cats, and while no particular breed is more prone than another, Persians show a slightly higher incidence.
The most commonly associated symptoms are nasal discharge and noisy breathing during inhaling.
2. The second type of Aspergillus infection is disseminated, (systemic infection) meaning it is more widespread in the body, not only in the nasal area. It is not certain how this form enters the body. Disseminated aspergillosis is most commonly associated with nonspecific signs, such as lethargy, depression, vomiting, and diarrhea. Other symptoms may include protruding eyeballs.
Additional Info: resolving of Aspergillus (Aspergillosis) which is a fungal infection that develops in the nose and sinuses of dogs/ cats (showing symptoms in nasal discharges). Immunocompromised cats such as those infected with FeLV or FIV are especially vulnerable to infections such as cryptococcosis. Infected cats do not pose a risk to humans. Infection is acquired by inhalation of the fungus and not spread from animals or humans. Once inhaled, the organism typically colonizes in the upper respiratory tract (usually the nasal passages)
Other "fungal infection" often diagnosed as either:
Aspergillus infection, Enterobacter Cloacae infection or Nocardiabacterial Infection
which is responsible for bacteremia, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, septic arthritis as well as infections in the skin, respiratory tract (sinus discharge or breathing distress) and urinary tract.
Sometimes there is a notable bad breath from an infection in the nasal passage. We have also added the homeopathic nosode Pasteurella Multocida nosode 12X, 30X, 10M treatment in homeopathic formula HAMPL Sinus 27-1 drops. Example: a number of pets have been tested positive to Pasteurella is a gram-negative bacteria. Pasteurella multocida found in the mouths of approximately 75-80% of all cats. Cats with tartar build up and gingival disease have a higher rate of infection than cats with clean teeth.
Symptoms are usually a swelling and local infection around the wound, which may lead to an abscess. More serious systemic symptoms can include sinusitis, pneumonia and brain abscess. So we have included (nose) nasal polyps remedies like ... Calc Carb, Sanguinaria - for nasal polyps, loss of smell, offensive discharge, Teuc Mar - mucous polyps in the nose.

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
