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 am having the same exact problem with my peek, no matter what I do, she stinks, constant scratching, and her odor is so bad that it sticks with you. Please help. Ty
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
My dog does the same thing please help
My dog is half English Bulldog and half lab. We have been using medicated shampoo about every 4 days yet she still smell ands can't stop scatching, what was your magic to help your dog feel better?
Please let me know how you got rid of the smell my dog is 6 yrs old 1/2 rottweiler and 1/2 pitt bull.
What can I do to get the stink off my dog? Do I need different food for her?

My 75 day old Golden Retriever puppy is getting a very bad odour. It's smelling very, very bad and huge. An hour after bathing the smell is gradually starting again.
If you have already started your puppy on their first year shots/vaccinations with a vet then you should be able to call them and ask for advice.
This bad odor could be serious so you do need to find the source/reason.
A large percentage of bad odors are caused by problems with their anal glands.
Here is a comment from a vet on this subject:
"The most unpleasant source of dog body odor lies in the anal sacs. These glands can become impacted and need expression to remove natural fluids. This may be the most obnoxious smell known on earth, so if your dog starts scooting its butt on the floor, head to your groomer or veterinarian to have the glands emptied."
If you have a groomer you might call them about a visit but if this problem continues (still a puppy) you may have to learn how to expel this yourself (easy to do but not always pleasant).
Be sure your puppy is on a planned first year program with a vet.
The dog could have a skin allergy that is causing this problem. It could also be from the food he is eating. You can eliminate this order by mixing some baking soda and cornstarch together and put it on the coat of the dog. They call this a dry dog shampoo and it works excellent to get rid of the orders from a dog. I would also like to suggest that you speak to your vet about this because it could be something more than just order and it might need treatment.
My dog always stinks. I give him a bath and a day or two later he stinks, what can I do?
He may have a fine undercoat that won't let him get wet to the skin (we have 2 dogs like that).
The next time you bathe him, put just a very small amount of pine oil type cleaner in the tub, not more than a tablespoon, and that may help keep the odor away longer. The only way I was able to clean the 2 with the fine undercoat, was to shave the hair down, then bathe them.
Try a paste solution of water and baking soda.
It's delicate, softens skin, reduces itching, and rinses clean, and it's super inexpensive. I remember seeing this as a solution for stripping product buildup from (human) hair. A tip from a famous hair stylist.
The dog may be allergic to his food. Try a different food and if it still smells see your vet. I had a friend that had a Golden Retriever that was allergic to any food with a corn base to it.
I had the problem answer but just as I was about to send it the site timed out. Your dog has sebhorea and you must get a special shampoo or pills which ever your vet recomends after a blood test.
First I would make sure it's not an organic problem. Check with your vet to make sure there are no underlying medical issues such as disease, allergies, etc. If that is clear, examine your dogs diet. It may be something that you are feeding him is causing an odor.
Your dog may have YEAST...that would make him smell (and itch).
You can checkout Nzymes.com. Giving my dog that AND giving him a grain free diet has helped us with this issue.
Even after changes in diet and no skin problems, my Yorkie smells bad and has oily hair only 3 or 4 days after a bath. Why? We have also tried 3 or 4 different groomers.
The only thing you need to be sure of with your groomer is that only dog shampoo is used and that your dog is being thoroughly rinsed and dried.
I wash my dog, an Airedale, once or twice a month. Yet within hours my wife complains that my dog stinks. He has hair, does not shed, and we wash him with pet soap and water in the bath.Still he does get ripe even for me after a few days. Nothing overwhelming, but I can pet him and it stays on my hand. What can I do about a 'hair' dog vs fur dog?
Do you "strip" her fur? The soft undercoat of the Airedale terrier traps moisture, oil and dirt.
Airedales do not naturally shed and require a human's help to shed this undercoat.

My dog Gizmo, a Shih Tzu, stinks 5 minutes after I give him a bath. I do not know why?
It could be that the anal glands need to be emptied, or it could be a yeast situation on the skin.
Here is a video about expressing anal glands in small dogs...
Here is a site that talks about yeast and how to get rid of it by various methods:
My dog smells a day after being given a bath. I have 3 dogs and feed them high end food.
It's possible that his anal glands need to be expressed. When they need to be expressed, it doesn't matter how often you give him a bath, the anal is still giving off the odor. You can do it yourself (look it up on youtube to see how), take him to the vet, or take him to a groomer.
