Q. I just got a dog from the SPCA. She just had puppies about 2 mos ago. She stinks like dirty feet. Like smelly corn chips. Bathe her, she still smells

A. Many times they actually smell worse just after bath (wet dogs smell bad). If when she dies up she still smells, buy a high quality dog shampoo bath her with warm water and brush her well with the shampoo on. Then rinse her and dry her with a hair dryer (be careful not to burn her).
A. The smell you are describing sounds like yeast. She may have yeast overgrowth, especially if she was living in a kennel or was malnourished. I'd suggest having her seen by a veterinarian as she may have a skin infection. Otherwise, you can try to purchase a shampoo that targets yeast overgrowth.
