I. Causes of body odor
1. Skin odor 】>
If a dog has a wound on its skin, the smell is common. However, wounds can enlarge due to bacterial infections, most commonly staphylococcus. Allergies, hormonal problems, and endocrine disorders can cause a dog’s skin to smell. This odor, parasitized by fleas on the dog’s skin, is the source of the smell. Dogs can also scratch their skin because of itching, which can lead to more serious bacterial infections.
Another source of odor is due to the fact that dogs lick their skin with their tongues for long periods of time, and the saliva accumulates bacteria and dust in the fur, causing the odor to emit. It is also more common for a dog’s coat to be covered in urine or poo, so it is important for parents to bathe their dogs regularly.
[2. Bad breath]
Bad breath is the number one killer of dog odor. When a dog eats, the mouth smells bad because food residue remains between the teeth. But this is only a minor problem because saliva can quickly consume food residue ? _Go for it. Persistent bad breath is caused by periodontal disease dental flesh.
Periodontal disease is caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar between the teeth. The bacteria survive and multiply in the warm, moist mouth, releasing sulfur-containing substances, which are the source of the odor. Some medications that boast of treating persistent bad breath in dogs only temporarily mask the odor and do not cure the underlying cause. So when a dog has bad breath, take him to the vet. Bacteria in the mouth can enter the blood vessels through the flesh of the teeth.
Studies have found that bad breath in dogs can lead to problems with other body organs and stimulate the growth of tumors. Bad breath can cause tissue in the pulp to die, roots to loosen, and teeth to fall out. If the situation is severe, only root canal treatment and antibiotics can solve the problem.
In addition to problems with the teeth themselves, older dogs often suffer from oral tumors, puppy bite wires oral tissue death, throat, nasal, oral and esophageal diseases, and hepatopancreatic disorders that can lead to bad breath in dogs.
Another disease that causes bad breath is labyrinthitis. This disease occurs mainly in breeds with wrinkled lips, such as the Spanish long-eared retriever. The odor caused by labyrinthitis is like the odor “athlete’s foot” caused by labyrinthitis, and veterinarians treat dogs with antibiotics. By keeping the dog’s lips and mouth clean and dry, and by cutting the hair near the lips and mouth short, the chances of labyrinthitis can be greatly reduced. Dogs with chronic kidney disease can have bad breath because of ? Urea concentration is high, and urea will flow out with saliva secretion. The urea in the mouth breaks down into ammonia ammonia, causing bad breath.

3. The smell of the ear
Dogs have smelly ears due to bacterial or parasitic infections. Ears can be infected with yeast. Bacterial infections that give off a sweet smell of fruit. Dogs with long ears are prone to these problems. Long ears can block blood circulation and become easily contaminated with dirt. Dog owners can clean their dog’s ears every two weeks with an alcohol swab. In serious cases, it is best to take the dog to a veterinary clinic for a detailed examination and proper treatment.
[4. The smell of the buttocks]
The anal glands are the most important source of dog odor. Anal glands have a role in helping dogs identify themselves because each dog’s anal glands smell differently, as the most common action dogs take when meeting each other is to sniff each other’s butts. In addition, when dogs live in the wild, anal gland fluids are left in the grass to show the dog’s range of strength. However, dogs living at home have less exercise and less leg muscle strength to push out excess anal gland fluid, resulting in a buildup, blockage and swelling of the anal glands. At this point, the anal glands can produce undesirable odors and lead to inflammation, bleeding, and even rupture.
[5. Stomach gas]
Another source of body odor is stomach gas. But the dog’s small intestine is 99%. Gases have no odor, such as nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, methane, and carbon dioxide. Dogs do not have stomach gas and can estimate the food they eat. Eating corruption eating foods that contain high protein and high sulfur amino acids, such as legumes and soybeans, can produce odor.
Control is simple as long as the dog is provided with a food that is easily digestible, low in fiber, and contains a moderate amount of protein, or you can seek advice from a familiar veterinarian. Dogs can get gas from swallowing air. If a dog is nervous when eating, or if a dog eats too quickly, it will swallow large amounts of air into its stomach. You and your dog will be embarrassed if changing your dog’s recipe does not progress. Excessive bacteria in the intestines, small intestine blockage, and gastrointestinal disease can lead to persistent gas.
A dog’s mouth, skin, ears, tail, and secretory glands are the sources of body odor. Some experienced dog parents check their dog’s scent every two weeks to get a first look at its health.
If a dog has a wound on its skin, the odor is common. However, wounds can be affected by bacteria Staphylococcus is the most common type of staining and expansion. Allergies, hormonal problems, and endocrine disorders can cause an odor in the dog’s skin. This odor, parasitized by fleas on the dog’s skin, is the source of the smell. The dog will grab the skin because of itching, which can lead to more serious bacterial infections.

1. Regular bathing
The secretions from your dog’s sebaceous glands have an unpleasant odor and can become contaminated with dirt, making the hair tangled and emitting a gusty stench. If you don’t bathe your dog, it can easily cause the invasion of pathogenic microorganisms and parasites, making your dog have body odor or even sick. Therefore, you must give your dog a bath to keep the skin clean, which is good for your dog’s health.
2 Regular dental cleanings
Dogs love to help their owners wash their faces, but bad breath dogs can be psychologically damaging when severely rejected by their owners. In addition to this problem, some dogs can have unknown swollen bleeding eyes, bleeding cheek ulcers, or bleeding nostrils that are examined and found to be a problem caused by dental calculus.
For older dogs, bad teeth can lead to poor nutrient absorption, and the dog’s mouth is less antimicrobial, which also makes it easy for bacteria to invade the dog’s body, which can be very harmful to the dog’s body in the long run, so what can be done? In fact, as long as the owner helps to clean the dog’s teeth regularly every two years to effectively control the dog’s dental calculus, it will give the dog a good breath.
3 Clean ear wax
When a dog is found to flap or scratch its ears a lot, it means there is something wrong with the dog’s ears, but many careless owners notice the smell in their dog’s ears, which in fact can be reduced if the owner cleans the ear wax in the right way.
The presence of earwax can help the ear fight foreign sources of disease. The colors of earwax are white, light yellow, and yellow. Shapes ranging from powders and lumps to soft mud are normal, but it must be cleaned regularly or normal ears will have a bad smell.
In the past, owners mostly cleaned their dogs’ ears with cotton swabs, but if the dog’s ear wax is wet and soft, this action can accidentally push the wax deeper into the ear and cause discomfort. In this case, it is best to soften the ear wax with drops and then remove it with the force of the dog shaking his ears.
The nature of a dog’s skin is different from the nature of a human’s skin. Human skin is weakly acidic and dog skin is weakly alkaline. Human body wash is not suitable for dogs. Depending on your dog’s health and coat condition, choose a pet-specific body wash, including hair care, flea and mite type, and hair removal and deodorization type. Choosing the right body wash for your dog will better protect the skin and prevent odor.
Pets live with us every day and their body odor always affects their owners. Most owners often help their dogs bathe with delicious shampoos to remove dog odor, but the effect is limited and often leaves dogs with skin diseases, in fact, with some tips such as helping dogs to clean their teeth regularly and effectively control their dental calculus, they can give their dogs a good breath. Cleaning ear wax in the right way can significantly improve a dog’s smell.
title=”Detailed usage of dog grooming tools”
1. Bathing attention
1 Be sure to comb the coat before bathing, as this will both comb through tangled hair and prevent it from becoming more tangled; it will also remove large pieces of dirt and make it easier to clean. In particular, the mouth, ears, armpits, femurs, toe tips and other areas where the dog least wants to be groomed should be groomed. When grooming, to reduce and avoid pain for your dog, you can hold the root of the hair with one hand and groom with the other.
2 The bath water temperature should not be too high or too low, generally 36-37 degrees in spring.
3 When bathing, be sure to prevent shampoo from running into the dog’s eyes or ears. When rinsing, be thorough and don’t let the soap suds or shampoo linger on the dog to prevent irritating the skin and causing dermatitis.
4 Give your dog a bath in the morning or at noon, and do not bathe on days when the air is humid or rainy. After bathing, dry immediately with a hair dryer or towel. Do not put the dog in the sun to dry after the bath.
2. Note on dental cleaning
It is also easy to cause bad odor if the dog is not eating properly: for example, bad breath caused by an incompatible spleen and stomach. At this point, we should cut back on some of the greasy foods, or we can get some functional dog food for pine dogs to improve their bad breath.
2 Pay attention to dental cleaning
The significance of dental health for dogs is not repeated. Dogs with heavy tartar do not brush their teeth as well. Of course, scaling is effective. However, dental cleaning for dogs is not as easy as dental cleaning for people and involves many issues. It is recommended that you try not to clean your dog’s teeth when necessary.
I’ll give you a list of possible issues involved in dog dental cleaning:
First, dogs should be scaled with general anesthesia: because dogs cannot cooperate with scaling activities, general anesthesia means that the dog will not react to the doctor’s weight during the scaling, and the dog will not give any feedback on whether there is damage to the teeth and gums. It is also possible to wash out loose teeth.
Second, the risk of general anesthesia:Whether it’s spay/neuter or major surgery, whenever general anesthesia is involved, a protocol will be signed beforehand. I think you are likely already
experienced in this way. There are risks associated with general anesthesia, and we should take that into account.
Third, the scaling process is also painful for the dog: the dog cannot eat or drink 12 hours before the scaling. I think this is mainly a consideration for general anesthesia to avoid the dog vomiting. In addition, it is not easy for the dog to have a simple physical examination before the dental cleaning. After the dental cleaning, the dog can feel uncomfortable for several days and cannot eat normal food.
In general, I personally think dogs have to be careful about the risks of having their teeth cleaned. If we could brush our teeth, we wouldn’t have them cleaned. If the owner can clean his dog’s teeth daily when the tartar isn’t too bad, he doesn’t have to have his dog’s teeth cleaned!
[3. Note on ear washing]
The presence of earwax in dogs can help the ear fight off foreign sources of disease. Generally, the colors of ear wax in dogs are white, light yellow, and yellow. Shapes ranging from powder to lumps to soft mud are normal, but it must be cleaned regularly or normal ears will smell bad.
Generally, we can clean a dog’s ears with a cotton swab, but if the dog’s ear wax is wet and soft, this behavior can accidentally push the wax deeper into the ear. So, in this case, if you are afraid to use a cotton swab, you can soften the ear wax with drops first and then remove it with the force of the dog shaking his ear.
Deodorization prescription:Place orange peel, etc. Remove the odor
Usually make toys for your dog, such as a tabloid pillow. Put two or three orange peels in it when you make it, and put it in the kennel when you’re done. Dogs will find the toy when they smell the orange, and dogs generally like to play with it. After a few days, the dog will smell a lot less!
Don’t give your dog a bath when he is too tired. Don’t give your dog a bath when his body temperature is at its highest. Remember, you’re not in a commercial. When the heat is suffocating, the shining head of a bucket of ice water can only be felt on TV. If you give it to your dog when he is tired and his body temperature rises sharply, it is expected that he will not die, but also get seriously ill. Whether it’s cleaning your pet dog’s teeth or ears, young owners must be extra careful. They must not be in a hurry for quickness or convenience and ignore the dog’s health for a while.
