Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand your dog has a metallic smell coming from the skin and orange feces. Can you please tell me if there has been any recent issues with the skin such as redness, oily skin, or itching? Also, has there been any diarrhea that was not associated with the boiled chicken diet?
