Stinky DOG!!

Recommended Posts

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!!!

    • Medicine has some ice in the north shallows, but is mostly open. Rice is 3/4 froze over. Should be making ice tonight with cold temps and calm.
    • LOL,  Don't p i s s Carol off! 
    • I have the Helix 7 Ice and there is no way you could pry that from my hands for a noisy spinning round dial thing. ( I was going to type flasher but I know what types of snarky GIF's would have been posted in reply to that. 
    • I’m glad Lavine is gone! With him on the team, wolves would’ve been in last place last year. He is NOT a winner! Chicago sucked last year! They suck this year! And they’re going to suck next year! I think Jimmy Butler would have stayed if we would have shipped off Wiggins. If anything, this trade should help reduce minutes for KAT and Gibson in a positive way.
    • Well, I’m only about 5 minutes into the next show, and I already know the older Judith will be more annoying than Carl was. Yep, show is back in the pits!
    • I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd!  Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn!  Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!!  hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! 😂  Go Wolves!!
    • My son was able to gain access by connecting it to his desktop. It required 12v power to drive it. Thanks.
    • UFFDA dats close!!!!!!!!!! we are close to the spring lake store iffin you go that way much!!!!!!
    • Not much to complain about so far, must be why its so quiet in here. From the games I am seeing we don't even look all that great yet but are finding ways to win and Dubs/parise/granlund have been amazing. Will need some depth to kick in to be any kind of real contender, and of course we need to find a way to actually score goals if we make the playoffs, it seems that is always the issue. 
    • Right there by Riley's.  Hopefully they stay locked up and the wind and temps behave.
