Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
The fact that your new gal is chewing tells us that she is suffering form a mild skin issue and this will cause a very bad smell. Check her for fleas and give her a bath in Dawn dishwashing liquid since she is very young for the regular flea shampoos. Give her Benadryl at 1 mg per pound every 12 hrs which will help stop the chewing. Once this skin issue resolves, she will not have that bad odor. In one week , shampoo her in a flea/tick shampoo such as Adams available at the pet store. In most cases such as this, it will take a couple shampoos to get rid of this odor.
If this has not helped, have your vet examine her since they can get an odor from puppy vaginitis or a more severe skin disease.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
