Q. My 13 yr old Dog releases smelly odor from recessed vulva, she is medium dog. What home treatment can I do?

A. If she is overweight then weight loss is essential to improve the air circulation in this area. Regular bathing with careful drying will help to reduce any bacteria and yeast in the area and there are medicated wipes which can be used also. She should be checked for any current urinary tract infection and If there is any associated incontinence this should be treated also. A chiropractor or acupuncturist may also be able to help with local muscle and nerve function and may provide some relief also
