Default Please help, I can't get the stink off this dog!

We have only had Jenna for four days. Her history is unknown. My tenant saw her previous owner leave her by the road. She has a very strong perfume smell on her. My daughter gave her a bath and she still smelled. Yesterday I gave her another bath and within a few hours the smell was back. I am very sensitive to perfume and my eyes hurt terribly from the smell on this dog . Her vet appointment isn't until next week and the groomer won't groom her without vaccinations.

I can't go the whole weekend with this smell, what can I do?

If you can't get rid of the smell by bathing, I would tend to think it might be coming from within. What kind of food are you feeding her?

Also, I don't know if it would work, but you could try the same recipe that you would use for dogs that have been sprayed by a skunk. NOT tomato juice! My friend is a groomer and she has some shampoo that really does a good job for skunk odor removal. Maybe your groomer will sell you some!

For home recipe use baking soda, peroxide, and Dawn. I'm not sure on the exact ratio, but I know that the Dawn is about one tablespoon, the peroxide is about one quart, and baking soda is maybe one-half cup. You can check it on line. I have had to use this quite a few times, unfortunately! So I always keep the ingredients on hand. HOWEVER - for a chi, I would just sponge the mixture on and work it in a little. I would do it like you would on a big dog. I use it liberally on my golden. But for a chi, I would be careful not to use too much. Then I would rinse well and dry her off! REMEMBER, the peroxide will lighten her color just a bit! But if it works, it might be worth it!

Good luck.

CORRECTION - CORRECTION!! I would NOT do it liberally!! Just a little at a time! Sorry - I meant to say I WOULD NOT do it as I do on my golden!

Whew! That would have been a big goof on my part!

She is mostly eating Natural Balance. She smelled really strong like perfume when we found her and my other dog doesn't so I don't think it is the food. I forgot to mentioned that she is in heat. I have never had an animal be in heat since I alter all my pets, but I can't imagine that smells like perfume!?!

Is it possible that she is diabetic? It can give their breath and urine a sweet flowery smell.

That's weird. Hmmm, I do know that diabetics often emit a super sweet smell. Other than that I don't know.
