I know this may be hard, but can you describe the stink? Does your dog have any scaly patches anywhere on the body? What about the ears? Are they clean & odorless or do they stink too?

Go sniff for us & come back with a report. :wink: :lol:

What are you feeding her? A lot of times a nasty "doggy" smell can be attributed to diet, but it could be anything in your girl's case. A bath every other day probably isn't a good thing. It washes away natural oils in the skin.

it's a weird stale stenchy kinda odor..... her ears are fine, her skin too, but when she walks by it's....GAGGING... and it really irritates my b/f. i think his sniffer is stronger than mine.

LOL...My boy has a bit of an odor about him too. Kinda a dirty wet rag sorta smell. LOL... I don't know what causes it, since somebody said food, now I am wondering if thats what it is. It started at the end of last summer when I put him on the purina...hmmmm. Do not bath her every other day it causes skin irritations. My vet said to only bathe twice a year. Of course I can't go that long since he's in the house so I only bathe him once a month now. I will switch his food again and see if it makes a difference. I will let you all know :wink:

Have you thought about calling the vet to see what he has to say about it?
yep, she said to brush her teeth :roll: but how is that going to help her skin....

it's not so overwhelming for me, but i get tired of hearing..."ooh, she stinks so bad, put her outside" our AB smells too, but she doesn't catch as much grief.

it's more of a poop smell not fishy thank goodness
Is it possible she is eating her own feces? Do you have a litter box she may be getting into? Harley loves "Kitty Krunchies" I ended up taking my 2 litter pans and putting them in a hallway that I could block off with a baby gate. Since then Harley has much better breath and doesn't stink like cat litter.

i've never seen her eat her poop or the cats or our AB, although, when our AB takes a dump for some odd reason, the pup is sniffing it when it comes out :shock:

disgusting.....

and since i said she hasn't farted in awhile, she decided to prove me wrong

We went from 70 degree weather to snow and wind last night. It is soooooooooooooo cold outside I hate taking Harley out to potty, but it's got to be done! Right now it's 28 and feels like 18 according to my weather pulse.
i know cold, and that's cold!!!

Take him to the vet to have them expelled. Some groomers will do this as well but I would certainly make sure they were experienced in this.

Kelly
OK, do I just walk in and say this is what I want done? Can they tell just by looking if this is what needs to be done? I guess I need to research it a little. I never even thought about the anal glands. Heard about it, but I guess I thought if that was a problem it would smell like poop LOL Makes sense to me. Thanks guys
