Help! I have a very stinky dog. Montana is approximately 6 years old. He weighs 62 lbs. and is a Belgium Malinois Mix...(we think.)
Anyway, he smells terrible. It doesn't matter whether he has just had a bath... nothing seems to help!
Montana eats a dry dog food called Just Six by Nutrish. I mix this with a slice of Fresh Pet moist food and water. He eats twice a day, and he gets two regular walks per day. He spends part of his day in a fenced 1/4 acre lot with pine straw and trees. I do notice that he seems to smell worse after exercise.
Only other issue I have with him is that he has very long nails, and has a fit if anyone tries to trim them. Otherwise, he is a wonderfully mellow rescue dog with no problems. His poops are good - he goes twice per day on average. Interestingly, he doesn't drink a lot of water even though it is always available to him.
As far as medications, we give him Frontline Plus every 10 weeks during the summer for flea prevention, although he's never had a flea problem. He's up to date on his vaccinations.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
