My outside dog (country) is always stinky kind of like humans

Customer Question

My outside dog (country) is always stinky kind of like humans with BO. Is there anything I can do. I hate to pet her because she so stinky, she 9 years old. PS. Even stinks after shortly after bath.

Hello. First off, I would use an oatmeal shampoo that has rehydrating qualities in the skin. I would do this every 2-4 weeks. That should help keep her clean. The other thing that helps, is using wipes to remove the bacteria and yeast from the surface of the skin. The ones I like are Malaseb wipes. You can get them from a vet or order them online. I would use them daily to keep the bug counts down which causes that smell. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
