Simple Yet Effective Remedies for Stinky Dogs

Simple Yet Effective Remedies for Stinky Dogs Author: scott williams How do we deal with stinky dogs? Here are simple remedies to cure our dog's foul odor. Why are there dogs that have a very foul odor? Even if you bathe them regularly, they still have that stinky smell in them. Sometimes dogs with bad odor lick themselves a lot, and actually pulling out their hair. They lick themselves often and their breath smells very bad after they do that. There are a lot of reasons why a dog stinks and there are also a lot of simple remedies to combat this. There are times when you even have to go to the vet just to cure and get rid of a dog’s bad odor. And of course you will spend more for this, like the vet’s fee and the medicated shampoos or soaps that will be prescribed. They say that a normal dog is odorless. When he starts to stink, it may be a malfunction of the sebaceous gland, caused by inadequate fat in the dog’s diet. Put your dog on a high fat content food and give him additional fat like chicken skin, bacon grease, butter or even a tablespoon full of vegetable oil; if you don’t have animal fat in hand. Liquid chlorophyll is a good remedy for stinky dogs. By putting a tablespoon or two of liquid chlorophyll mix with your dog’s water every day, you send the chlorophyll through their whole system. Chlorophyll has a slight mint flavor and most dogs love its taste in its water. Using liquid chlorophyll leaves the dog’s breath fresh all the time and it moves through the dog’s body and aids in digestion, cleanses the blood and helps neutralize odors that emanate from within your dog. And after it passes through your dog’s system it neutralizes the odor of your dog’s pee and poop. Another reason for the bad smell of a dog is the so called PH imbalance on the skin, in the digestive tract, the mouth or in the ears. A simple remedy for this skin imbalance is to have a vinegar rinse and ladies douches work to clear the odor. The acidity restores the PH balance. You can mix vinegar and water and bathe it to your dog and do it for few weeks. You can do the same thing with ladies douches, mix it with water and use the mixture in bathing your dog. Here’s another simple remedy for stinky dogs. In a large container, a sink or a tub; mix 1 quart hydrogen peroxide, ¼ baking soda, 1-2 tablespoons of dish soap. Now carefully sponge this over the offensive areas on the dog and be very cautious to not get any of the liquid to the dog’s eyes. Let it soak for 5 minutes or more and then rinse it off and now shampoo your dog with his regular mild shampoo and rinse again. Another good solution for the dog’s odor is to mix water with hand cream and Listerine. Mix it together in a spray bottle and spray it on your dog’s coat and rub it into their skin. The Listerine is anti bacterial and it takes away the smell, the hand cream works as a conditioner which makes the hair shiny and softens the skin. With the above mentioned remedies I am sure it will take away the foul odor of your dog. I am a dog lover for 20 years. I have been training a lot of dogs in any breed and Im starting to write down the methods that I use in the art of dog training. Article Source:

dr on video explaining who gets hip dysplasia,what is hip dysplasia,symptoms of hip dysplasia and the diagnosis of hip dysplasia


I'm not sure how your dog is doing right now, but I want to let you know that if he is clumsy,has a wobbly gait which means that he has a swish to his walk, walks with his head down alot (because he is walking on his front half)which my Dakota did. He had great muscle mass in the front half of him because of this,but very little in the back. Won't even attempt to jump up on your furniture, which is good but at the same time can show you that he doesn't want to use them back limbs.Goes to move your hand with his nose if you are trying to rub those back limbs in the hip joint area (because he is sore,so he is protecting them).sometimes they will literally stumble going up stairs etc.. Now I am not saying that this is definately hip dysplasia in your animal because i am no doctor but those are the things that went on with him and he had severe hip dysplasia.Just ideas,things to watch for and ask your vet about if you are noticing any of this in your animal... These are things that I noticed when we had Dakota. Now, it was a little different with him because he had just been neutered so we weren't sure if things were going on with that at first or something else was going on until a few weeks had passed by and he just wasn't healing like we thought he should be so we made him a vet appointment thank goodness. If you are here, I am assuming that the reason has to do with a possible surgery coming up and you want to learn more and make the right decision. I am so glad that you are doing this!! First of all make sure that you read on the choices of surgeries if you haven't talked to your vet on that yet. I am still worried that maybe the complete hip surgery may have been the way to go for him instead of the fho surgery. He is out of pain which was my goal of course and it will never come back so I am told. But, he has such a swish still when he walks and pretty clumsy still. I know it is early yet and hopefullly these things will still take care of themselves with time and muscle growth. Just something to think about if you have a larger dog like I do. Research,Research,Research you have one chance. Make sure that you make the right one for you and your loved pet.
