A dog’s sense of smell is said to be about 1,000 times stronger than ours. As dog owners, we should probably consider that something of a blessing. In fact, we’re often so unaware of our dog’s odor funk that it often takes a family member or good friend to point this out. (With tact, one hopes.)
Or maybe you have noticed that your beloved family pet smells a bit off lately. If so, you shouldn’t make a big stink about it; you should investigate, say experts. That’s because there are a range of possible causes from the harmless (your dog rolled in something) to the dire (cancer).
If you’ve tried obvious methods of alleviating the stench, including giving your dog a bath, a good combing and maybe a trip to the groomer, then you should take a closer look.
