Q. I have a great Pyrenees mix. she has some sort of skin allergy and smells terrible what can I do?
DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM
A. 1) you should have a vet look at the skin. It is likely a skin condition (whether allergic, or caused by something else) that has a secondary infection by bacteria and therefore smells bad. This will need to be treated with prescription antibiotics.
2) It is necessary to find out what your dog is allergic to and then preferably avoid that allergen. This could be a fleabite allergy, food allergy or other.
3) Your dog could have a skin condition called seborrhea, which also houses bacteria that smell bad. Oatmeal shampoos and similar can help|
But you should take your dog to your vet for an exam.
