Help! My Pet Smells--Here is What You Can Do To Get Rid Of Smelly Odors


pet odor
You keep smelling that odor.  You try bathing your pet, cleaning the bedding and still the odor persists.   Sometimes you need to be a pet detective to figure out what the source of the odor is.  Pet odors are a warning sign that need your attention!

Smelly Skin and Coat— Sometimes a pet owner might conclude "Oh that is just the way Rover smells" but in reality---there is something else going on whether it be an infection, poor diet or digestive issues. Although bathing a pet with medicated shampoos may help, if your pet still smells after having a bath, there may be an underlying health issue and it is a good idea to take your pet for a physical examination.

A common cause of skin odor is infection and allergies (both food and environmental). Pets may have parasitic, bacterial or yeast infections that should not be ignored.  Pets with skin problems. allergies and yeast are frequently reacting to their diet--almost always it contains allergens and too many carbohydrates!  Pets with these issues seem to fare on a raw frozen diet as these foods contain fresh enzymes, are lower in carbohydrates and contain "live" food. Dry foods can be harder to digest, can ferment in the bowel and can therefore promote yeast overgrowth.
ear infections
Stinky Ears—If you smell near your pet's ears and there is a strong odor, take your pet for a checkup right away. Ear infections, left untreated are very painful and can lead to deafness.  Many ear infections are due to yeast overgrowth and using the same protocol for smelly skin and coat would be advised.
cat veterinarian
Bad Breath—Pets need dental cleanings just like we do. Pets can develop infections in the mouth, have rotting teeth and inflamed gums.  For cats, stomatitis is a leading culprit with bad breath.  Symptoms of stomatitis include red, inflamed gums, mouth odor and reluctance to eat.  Using QuentaSAN and NotaSAN along with Power Probiotic can make a tremendous difference. If you have recently had your pet’s teeth cleaned and there is still a bad odor, then it could be poor digestion or acid stomach and Power ProbioticK9 Digestive Enzymes and Gastro ULC can help.

Careful Planning and Adult Supervision Can Ensure A Wonderful Bond Between Kids and Pets

   

Having a family pet can be beneficial for children. It can help teach them love, respect, and responsibility.  The key for successful pet ownership is adult supervision, age appropriate tasks and open communication regarding expectations and concerns.

Factors to consider:
  • the age of the child
  • the size, energy, strength and temperament of the pet
  • safety for the child and the pet (the location of a walk, presence of other animals that could cause aggressive behavior, hand feeding that could cause nipping, etc.)
  • the extent to which the child is able to display empathy for the pet's well being (not chasing it, etc)
Slowly rewarding children with more responsibility as they demonstrate completion of tasks works well.  In addition, having realistic expectations and preparing for danger (e.g. allowing the child to hold the leash while the adult maintains control of the dog) can reduce risks for both the pet and the child.  Careful planning and adult supervision can ensure a wonderful bond between pets and kids that can last a lifetime.

Owning A Pet Can Improve Your Emotional, Physical and Social Well-Being


Many studies have been done on the emotional, physical and social benefits of having a pet. Emotionally, a pet can offer loyalty, a nonjudgmental source of support and be a provider of endless amounts of unconditional love. In a survey, The American Veterinary Medical Association found  that 63.2% of the respondents consider their pets a family members and 35. 8% their “companion”.* Also 97% admitted to regularly talking to their pets**. In addition to the emotional support, pets can have a beneficial physical impact. Petting and/or playing with your pet can lower blood pressure, have a calming effect and increase levels of serotonin and dopamine in your brain (creating a more positive feeling). Socially, they can help you become part of a community with other pet owners and offer a topic of conversations in other social situations creating a point of connection.  Owning a pet can improve your emotional, physical and social well-being.
