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!!!

    • The Clinton camp might have thought twice before parading the former beauty queen out to show how bad he is to women considering the extensive list if women her husband has had his fun with over the years. I am surprised that the Republicans haven't made them more if an issue but I suppose they didn't want her to play the victim card but at this point I think they have to take off the gloves and throw it out there.
    • Is that all I'm good for?!         I know the answer is yes....
    • Thanks Lip Ripper, I've looked at a couple of your builds on this page and I never would have noticed that! I've never seen a fish house in my area as the closest lake safe to drive on in the winter is an hour and a half away, so I definitely appreciate all the help I can get from the experts!!!  
    • A teleprompter really helps to not make people look stupid.
    • Team Europe had a chance last night. Leading late into the 3rd and the wheels come off. Even with a PP with under 2 minutes left to play they give up a short handed goal!? Tough one, but Canada is certainly the better team. Glad its over so we can get our players all back with the wild, but I did enjoy the tourney even though the US was terrible.
    • That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)"  He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.
