Stinky dog!

Okay so my "puppy" will be 3 this July. She is a Bichon/Maltese and is apx 8lbs.

She has been stinking us out of our home the last few weeks! I have never been around such rancid smells from a dogs bum

She currently gets half a cup of Pacifica | Acana twice a day. She drinks lots of water. She gets no people food at all and she will get a petite Greenie once every few days as a treat.

She gets treated with an Advantage Multi once a month.

What in heavens name is making her so gassy? She is allergic to chicken so we are very careful about what she eats and make sure no one gives her treats or human food.

Please do not say switch her to a RAW diet. We tried it and it almost killed her. She has never had an issue with the Acana food before. We did have her on Blue Basics for awhile but it seriously just came out as fast as it went in. So I stick to the Acana kibble.

Any ideas? I would love to not be gassed out of my home anymore. And its not just regular ol dog farts. This is just down right offensive. I have never seen her this gassy before and I have had her since she was 8 weeks old.

Very true, however this is beyond just nasty. Even my SO has been offended by the smell coming out of her behind the last few weeks.

Had this been a regular thing I would agree. But this is gas and nasty smells like I've never smelled before coming out of her. This is a very new thing for her at this level of nasty. And its not like its only a few times a day. This has been every half hour. I am thinking we might have a vet visit in our near future *sigh*

She had a very nasty bm this afternoon that was pure liquid. Which leads me to think something is upsetting her tummy. She hasn't had another liquid bm since the one this afternoon. If she does I will call the vet.

Are her anal glands impacted? That can cause a really foul smell!! Does she scoot her butt across the ground??? I'd get the vet to empty her anal glands, that's what it sounds like to me......

^^ That.
Our friend in Montana kept going on about milking her Mastiff's butt glands. Maybe that has to be done.

But, dude, man... That'd be the freaking day. That pooch would be looking for a new home before I milked it's butt! LMAO

Anal glands make a fishy-ish smell and will leave an oily residue type stuff on things.

It can be anything from a medical condition to something in her food she is getting.

Have you switched foods lately?

No its not her anal glands. That was one of my first thoughts. She is not oily and it is not a fishy smell. I am thinking of doing the bland diet for 48 hours. That is what my vet had me do last time her tummy was upset. I have to go to the vet to get it so I will ask her when I am there.

Hubby was just taking a shower and she jumped in with him(which she never does as she hates water) So he gave her a shower and I blow dried her and brushed her out. That seems to have perked her up. I did an Advantage dose on her in case it is worms.

It is just so weird. Having a dog with a sensitive stomach and food allergies is really hard on the head.

Toto she has been on the Acana that I linked in my first post her entire life, except for a few months when she was on the Blue Basics when I moved because I couldnt find the Acana in the city I moved to for awhile. But she has been back on the Acana for 6 months

Maybe she found something dead and rolled in it? They love that for some reason.

No chance. She is an apartment dog. Plus I know its farts as they are loud and she stares at her bum every time lol. I honestly think she is offending herself and is shocked that such a noise and smell is coming from her own bum lol
