My Dog Contantly Stinks!... And That's Not All!
I have sought more than one vet's opinion and cannot seem to find the right solution! I have a blue merle female Aussie. She is now 12 years old and I keep her groomed as she lives inside now, this includes a monthly trip to the groomer who clips her hair very short to keep the shedding down, bathing, clipping/grinding of nails, having her teeth cleaned, anal glands cleaned, etc. I can get her home and upon taking her outside to potty for the first time, she immediately has an odor! Her paws smell sort of like fritoes, her body odor I can't explain! She contantly licks herself, so that probably doesn't help at all and I have no idea how to stop her from doing so!
When I do catch her, I tell her to stop and she does, for a little while, and then she's right back at it... I sometimes think if she doesn't quit, she will lick herself a new you know what!... sorry, but it's gross and she stinks and if she wasn't so old, (has also lost an eye due to being kicked a long time ago by a cow) I would put her back outside (if I had a fenced yard, which I don't). She has my whole house stinking. I've shampooed my carpets, sprayed Fabreez, used carpet fresh, wash her bedding weekly, etc... I don't know what to do!
(I also feed her a natural organic dog food, switched last year hoping it would help).
