My usually nonstinky Boxer has lately been smelling up the house. Her coat is smelling more doggy stinky and she is having worse than normal gas. Her food is the same and she hasn't changed her eating habits. As far as I know she hasn't gotten into anything outside, but she could have without me knowing I guess. Also, she tends to follow my toddler around picking up food he drops...could that be causing the stinkiness? Any other ideas or tips?
Hi Janetta. I'm no expert, although I do have a Shih Tzu. I find with her gas is always associated with food and the "stinky dog" issue is usually due to skin problems. A condition Shih Tzu are cursed with. Might be something you might want to check with your vet about. Whish I could be of more help.
yes. Shiba, she has been doing more scratching--you're probably right about the skin issue. I will check with the vet about it, thanks The gas probably is from getting a hold of people food my boys drop I guess. I'll just have to watch more closely when they have food around her and make sure she isn't lying in wait for a morsel to drop
