Dog's Urine Smells Fishy

Does anyone have any idea why my dog's urine smells fishy? Could it be an infection or the food he's eating?

Could also be a urinary tract infection. If smell doesn't dissipate, take your pup to vet.

Is your dog on any medication? My senior doxie has fishy smelling urine but it's from her liver meds.

Your vet would be the best person to ask.

If you haven't just changed food or added a new medicine, it's likely an infection. My late dalmatian's urine had a 'smokey' odor when she had a bladder infection. Generally they are easily treated (depending on what 'bug' it is, a 7-14 day course of antibiotics). However, left untreated, Urinary Tract Infections can spread to the kidneys where they are MUCH harder to treat.

Good luck.

Every time this smell is noticed in our dog, she has a UTI. The vet has done every test available to find why she usually gets two infections a year and could find nothing. She is just prone to them, so now we go to the vet as soon as she begins to emit this smell. By the way, vet said men usually can smell it first, and that is true at my home. Go figure. ;)
