My Older Dog Smells: What Can I Do?

Why does my older dog smell?

When younger dogs are smelly, there is a good bet they rolled in something stinky or tangled with a skunk. With your senior pets, however, you may notice they smell more often, even when they haven’t been outside recently. Health issues are most often the source when an older dog starts to smell bad. In some cases, a wellness checkup with your veterinarian may be necessary to begin treatment to help your pet feel and smell better. The team at All Pet Animal Hospital has put together this guide to help explain why your older dog may smell bad, and what you can do about it.
