Advice on a springer spaniel with body odour

by desperate
(west sussex)

My springer hasn't always smelt as strongly as he does now, it is body odor and it is making my home smell so bad, I shower him if he rolls in certain unpleasant things and if he gets very muddy, but in the last couple of months his body odor has become so strong.


Im constantly washing his bedding and dry shampooing anywhere he may lay on the rug or carpet, and leaving the house doors and windows open. I love him dearly but dreading the winter coming, help!!!!.

Hi there
what are you feeding him? It may be his food so try changing it to a
hypoallergenic food.

Other than that I would suggest you see your Vet he may be able to help, it could be his anal glands are blocked or something else

Doggy smell
by: Sally

Hi
Im having the same problem with my castrated male springer JJ. He tends to smell really doggy and I wash his bedding constantly, bathe him when the weather permits and have just recently had his coat and feathers trimmed and tidied up. I was also thinking of trying doggy deodoriser in the hope that it works??

Could be anal gland needs emptying ? The vet will tell you if it is.

Odor
by: Michele

One thing to add to what Anna already told you is stress. My Springers can be quite smelly if they become stressed over something. The only way I have of dealing with that is to keep some doggy 'perfume' around. I spray them with it then brush their hair. Seems to help a little.
