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!

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.

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.....
