Odor Issues In Pets

If your pet seems to have an undesirable or strong odor, you should try to check the underlying cause so it can be treated as soon as possible. The first thing to do is check your pet’s mouth and ears because infections in these parts are usually odor-causing bacteria. Sometimes, your dog may have eaten something foul or rotten from rummaging through the garbage bin or he may have encountered a skunk. Some dogs also roll in decaying organic matter, an instinctive behavior that they have inherited from their ancestors to mask their scent from predators. 

A routine bath may also help keep your dog smelling like a dog should. There are perfumes for dogs however if your dog is extremely sensitive, he may develop skin irritation or sneezing if he has nasal allergies.

But if your dog still smells stinky, you should consult with your veterinarian Washington DC to determine the underlying cause so the appropriate treatment can be given.
