My puppy doesn’t bite, scoot and the glands are not infected. He just gets a really bad odor when he’s sleeping or has to go out. My vet says he’ll grow out of it but my sister's dog is 6 and still does it. Is there anything I can do? Any foods that cause this? Like eggs or tuna?
If the smell you get is fishy, most likely it's the anal glands. If your dog's stools are not nice and firm, then this can be a cause for the smell you sense. Some dog owners have obtained good results with pumpkin or supplements for anal gland health that help firm up the stools.
