My pug stinks! He's about 4 months old now and even though I bathe him every weekend, the smell still comes back! I tried cologne and powder but the smell comes back after these additives wear off. I am not sure whether pugs smell this way? Or perhaps the smell will go away after they grow older? Other than the smell, he is a very clean dog - knows where to do his "business" (well, most of the time anyway)and always keeps his sleeping area clean. Any remedies? Please help! Thanks!
When your pug stink even after regular bath, it it likely that his skin is having some problem such as bacteria infection or others. You may want to try to bath him using medicated shampoo and I find that MALASEB is a good effective medicated shampoo and I use it on all my Pug.
Yep my dog had mange too last time and i also used Malaseb....he used to hv this stinky smell, especially the underneck and underarm area and the skin was a bit oily and damp....check and see whether your dog's body has any dampness to it, especially the folds of the skin and is he scratching a lot? Not that your dog has mange but any sort of fungal infection may cause the same symptoms.
hi all, i did thought about getting another dog and thought perhaps i'll go for a pug, but seems like pug has this tendency of breathing heavily and also having smell/skin problems.. am i right to say so?
