Stinky DOG!!

7 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone has any thoughts on this. I have a Lab and we had been feeding her Royal Canine Lab 30 food. We decided to switch to NUTRO High Energy due to the fact she was having trouble keeping weight on. The High Energy food has a higher fat content and still is a good quality food right? Well since we switched she stinks. I give her a bath and less than a week later she already smells. This never happeaned with the royal canine food. I am thinking about switching back. Any Thoughts?

Maybe try mixing in a little of the new food with mostly old food and add a little bit more until she is accustom to the new food or is at a desirable weight.

Check her ears to see if she has a yeast infection. My lab had an offensive smell last year and I couldn't figure out why. I happened to smell his ears while hugging him and found the origin of the smell. I quick trip to the vet and meds and he's been fine since.

Thanks for the replies! Gatorhunter i think you nailed it I took a better look and her ears smell pretty bad. I cleaned them out and will take her to the vet in the next couple of days. Thanks for the help again everybody.

Yes, my cocker has those problems with alot of hair around the ears and they heat up and bacteria grows. I have a bottle of stuff that I put on a que tip and clean her ears and then also place a liquid that I got from the vet and put some in each ear.

Fixes the problem every time. The dog also stops scratching her ears.

Most retrieving dogs encounter this, due to their love of water. However, even a bath can do it if water sits in their ears for a while.

Pick up one of the ear cleaners (epi-otic, etc...) and spray some in there after they have been in the water, works great!!!

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
