Take him to the vet; it's not normal that he smells so bad he needs a weekly bath. Delgado is almost 2 and has had 5 baths in his entire life and two of them were because he rolled in something...unmentionable so it was very necessary
The vet should help you determine whether it's diet or medical

1) What are you feeding
2) Any supplements?
3) How often are you bathing and what do you use?
4) What flea prevention is he on?

|KathrynApril||(Sorry cat stepped on the keyboard while I was typing.) If the odor is that bad, personally I would be heading to the vet. With him scratching a lot, the scratches in his ears and his bad breath it could be many of the things they are saying online. It sounds like an infection if the smell is that bad. Best to take him to the vet. Plus any time there is labored breathing, personally I would think you are past the "trying to do anything before going to the vet".|

I have been getting complaints of Benjamin smelling AWFUL, which is pretty odd being as I brush him daily and I bath him weekly (because he DOES smell terrible). I have been cleaning his cage and himself constantly, including clipping of the nails and cotton swabbing his ears and baths with a brushing before and after.
After living in the household stink for awhile and actually looking into it, I realized his odd behavior might be related.
He has been biting and scratching himself A LOT. He has some little red scratches in his ears which aren't serious, but they are there. His breath smells wretched, and his breathing is constantly labored (he is sleeping in his crate, but still breathing hard as if he'd just heavily exercised or extremely stressed). I'm not sure if all of this is connected to his feeding (as I've been told it has by non-experts). I'm use to being around dogs that laze around and scratch themselves and smell horrible, but I'm starting to think this all might be connected.
Is there any recommendations before I make a vet appointment? I have read online that others' dogs have had anal infections, ear infections, bacteria or yeast, but especially skin diseases or allergies from the type of food with these same symptoms.
Any way of telling?
