Funny/gross smell???

Lexi is emitting a gross smell and I don't know what it's from. I've checked her out and don't see any kind of discharge, but the smell reminds me of when a female dog is in heat, it's like a menstrual smell?? BUT she just got fixed a couple weeks ago, so it can't be that can it??? I don't want to call the vet for something that just be a grooming problem or a normal occurance. It just grosses me out! Blech!

Any ideas??

Thanks!

Beth

Re: Funny/gross smell???

Marley just had a yeast infection in her ear. It was a yucky smell. Did you check the ears?? Even if you can't see it, that might be where the smell is coming from.

Precious - Witch kitty 10 years
Nike- 1yr Pound Puppy
Tinkerbell- 9 mo kitty

Re: Funny/gross smell???

either anal gland discharge or maybe she just has some urine and discharge from when she was spayed. did she wear an e-collar after her surgery? they can't keep themselves clean while wearing them, so maybe it's just a combo of urine, blood and discharge from her surgery sticking to her fur or something.

anal gland discharge to me smells fishy.....
