There is no drainage from the nose. His teeth and breath are fine. He saw the vet couple of weeks ago regarding skin infections, which have since cleared up, but the smell from the nose is worse.
I don't think this is the problem. I also notice there is a smell coming through the skin on his paws. It's the same smell as around the nose area. I don't think it has anything to do with the actual nose. He had skin infections recently and I had to change his food. He had a lot of hot spots which is now cleared up, but the smell lingers. It's really awful.
I just switched him back to Duck and Potato by Natural Balance. Before that when his skin infection was bad, he was on Chicken and Brown Rice formula by Blue. When he had the skin infection, I took him off of all dog food and fed him boiled chicken, whole grain brown rice and sweet potatoes...no flavoring of any kind, of course. Then when it cleared up, I tried his Blue dog food again and he broke out again, so I switched him to Natural Balance - Duck and Potato. He doesn't have any itching or hot spots now but just the smell. Could it be the enzymes that he is taking?
