Within hours of a meal, sticky plaque begins to accumulate on your pet's teeth. Pets with kidney disease suffer from the inability to remove waste products from the bloodstream. Some people also say that pets in kidney failure have a metallic odor to their breath. If your dog does not make enough insulin or not using insulin properly, her body will be unable to use the food she eats. Dogs with ragged skin are prone to skin fold dermatitis. This stinky skin disorder occurs because of close skin contact. This creates a warm, moist environment perfect for an overgrowth of surface microbes. Allergies in dogs show up in itchy skin, rather than watery eyes and sneezing like they do in humans. Dogs who swim frequently without a proper ear-drying routine are also likely to develop recurring ear infections. Anal sacs are two small glands located on either side of your dog's rectum. Some dogs have powerful enough gas to clear a room. If you notice a foul smell coming from your dog, and you can’t remove the odor with a good bath, there may be a health issue. . . .
