My Westie has started smelling very badly, even a week after bath. He has nothing outside to roll in. He has been licking his legs alot. Vet put him on prednizone.
Check that the type of food you are giving him is good for dogs. Many cheap brands (the ones you can buy in any grocery store or in places like petsmart and petco) contain a lot of corn (now they are listing it as "maize" to try to cover this in a lot of foods). Corn (and wheat, too) in dog foods can cause skin itching, hot spots, paw-licking, ear yeast, allergies, and really bad odor.
See if switching to a higher end, grain-free dog food (Merrick, Eagle Pack, Evo, Orijen, etc) helps your dog. You can also go to making his own food. As long as they have a good source of calcium (Solid Gold Bone Meal is good…follow directions on the package) and protein (meat), the dog should be good to go. Make sure to search for what foods are toxic to dogs, just to be on the safe side.
Good luck!Tags: Westie
