Smelly heat

Diabla is in heat right now and she has a very very strong odor. I wash her hindquarters twice or three times a day, but the smell is not only the blood drops, its HER!

I don't want to repel males, I just want to be in the same room with her, there is a home recipe (no commercial products) or advice you could give me to control the smell?

Re: Smelly heat

Is she licking it? That can cause some pretty nasty breath.

Re: Smelly heat

I didn't think dog heats were supposed to cause an odor offensive to humans so this doesn't sound right to me. Maybe she needs to see the vet? I think I'd at least give the vet a call and ask.

Is it possible she rolled in something stinky?

Re: Smelly heat

I have never heard of a dog smelling because they are in heat, could it be her anal glands? Might need a trip to the vet to be sure there is no infections.

Re: Smelly heat

Goog point Kay13411. I just took mine to the vet last week for a urinary infection and which I also felt she smelled of urine and I contributed this to her needing a bath (which she was scheduled for a few days later). Vet smelled anal glands and so she took care of that.

I used to think that too, but observing my girl during her heats I have learned that on certain days she REALLY smells (although she's very clean otherwise). No infection or anything, just the smell of the "heat".

Re: Smelly heat

Yes, the breath is bad too, didn't think on that. Maybe a tooth cleaning twice a day instead of her usually "once a week or so" may help.

She was this way on her first heat too, only by then she didn't sleep on my bedroom, so it was easier to bear and I just ignored her then.

No infections or whatsoever. I am very lucky, I live WITH the vet

Re: Smelly heat

My female gets a "funk" about her but nothing that I can't stay in the same room with...then again, I like the smell of skunks so that might not mean much.
