Q. Our dog medium size smells all the time except after bath & 3-days at most is there anything to keep dog smelling better?
A. There is 3 things I would like to know in your case. How often are you bathing your dog? We recommend no more than 1 per month. What kind of food are you using? Diets rich in Omega can help in the skin odour. And what is the shampoo you are using? Some shampoo's contain ingredients that can be really irritants or your dog be sensitive to them and normally a skin inflamed is activating the sebaceous glands and increasing the smell.

A. Foul odors in between baths can sometimes indicate an underlying health problem, so if your dog continues to have odor even with additional remedies, scheduling a wellness appointment with your local vet is best.
Dogs can easily get odors from many things, and while bathing can help, bathing too frequently can actually harm your dog more than help, Too frequent of baths will strip the skin and coat of its natural oils that can protect it, leading to a chance to cause underlying skin and fungal infections (which can be smelly). Bathing should not be done more often than every few weeks with a sensitive skin or oatmeal based shampoo. For times in between to help keep your dog smelling best, a water-less shampoo that can be brushed through, or even the use of baby or pet wipes after your dog comes in can help remove dirt and debris that may cause odor without stripping your dog's natural oils.
