Dog Smells After Bathing

I have a 10 month old English Bulldog and 2 days after a bath he stinks my whole apartment up. If you pet him your hand stinks terribly. I am literally sick. I've tried everything that I could think of. If anyone knows of a good home remedy to help get rid of this odor please share. I need some help.

Does he scratch constantly? Does the fur on his head feel greasy? If yes, it sounds like your dog has seborreah which is a genetic problem and horrible to deal with. People would walk in our house and ask "what's that smell". I cleaned constantly and couldn't make it go away. After spending close to $5,000 over a three year period for medications, including steroids, vet bills, medicated shampoos we finally have it under control. There is no cure. If you find out that this is what your dog has and you would like my advice on how to control it, pls e-mail me back and I will explain it to you. Our dog is a rescue and we love him to death. It is so good to see him no longer scratching.

Our dog is also a rescue and seems to have the same thing. His greasy, waxy place is on his back though. What did you do for it?

Hi. I have a Rhodesian ridgeback mix. I brought him back from Costa Rico. He seems to have this skin problem frequently.

I thought it may be due to the change in environment. We currently live in Sacramento, ca. Any help will be appreciated

Please send your recommendations! I've wasted more $ than I can afford on vet's guesswork. So far, nothing, short of bathing her every other day keeps my beautiful 2 y/o dobie from a horrible doggie stench within the 1st day or 2 after bathing her, & rinsing w/vinegar. Any advice is welcome & appreciated! Josiegeo@aol.com

In 2 days he smells again!! What can I do? He doesnt scratch his skin or act like his anus is clogged up. He went to vet and had 2 abscesses teeth pulled. No ear infection I can see.
Is there a particular shampoo/rinse I can use to help? How bout a spray to help? Thanks. Jeff clark

I am having the same problem with my 8yr old Yorkie. The problem started about 5 yrs ago (after moving to SE GA). Was told by vet that she has skin allergies. We changed her diet several times but nothing helped. She itches so bad she needs a steroid shot every 2 mo. The shots do help but she looks greasy & smells so horrible, even after bathing. She is so sweet but she makes the whole house stink. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated! TIA

Fight bacteria: increase dog temperature for at lease 30 min a day for three day: hot bath, some 50ml alcohol drink of 40 percent vol 2 to 3 time a day for there day lots of water take dog for longer walk. Feed with dog food that have + immune during those days.
Don't let any water on the cranial area.
Absolutely no water to the ear.
Get ride of dog bed if any
Disinfect dag sleep area and play area with just soapy water.
Take care

My dog was suffering from hot spots and some sort of yeast infection on her skin. It was really difficult to deal with and she had a bad odor as well. This might be similar to what is happening to your dog. Our vet gave us a medicated shampoo which really seemed to help.

Good luck, I hope you find the solution for your furbaby.

Answer: My Lhasa apso mix, smelled awful as a puppy and would scratch and eat himself raw. Turns out he is allergic to beef. Make sure you don't give anything that your pup is allergic too. He reeked within hours after a bath. Had ear infections unremitting. Solution was very easy once we figured out it was a beef allergy. No beef treats, no beef canned food, no beef rawhides, no beef hooves, no beef nothing. Try a one ingredient diet. Also used otic solution with hydrocortisone off amazon if there are ear infections, cleared it right up and stopped feeding him what he was allergic too. For baths, I have since used grandpas tar soap , followed by any conditioner and he now has luxurious gorgeous hair. He smells fine now and his skin is much softer. Switched to Orijen. He is no longer miserable. Make sure noone gives the dog any beef of any kind if that species is the culprit, including hotdogs, bologna, vienna sausages. He once got sick years later and it turns out the chicken canned food from trader joes had beef as an ingredient. Check labels when changing foods. It's probably food allergens.

I have a wonderful doggie skin vet who found a drug called Cytopoint. It's not a steroid but acts like one. I rescued a Lhasa who had horrible allergies and now has nasty yeast. Impossible to get rid of but he no longer scratches. It's a wonder drug. Not cheap but worth it to me. I use a for yeast shampoo on him and bathe him every 4 days. Different times of year are worse than others. Oh yeah, he stinks. After 3 days, it's time for a bath. Also rinse his feet, the worst offenders in 2/3water to 1/3 vinegar. It helps. I hope this helps some of you
