    Default Food causing Odor?

    Has anyone ever put their dog on a certain food, and they developed a smell? I'm not talking yeast, or bacterial, etc.

    Like did their general smell change? We just finished a small bag of Orijen Six Fish (the food stinks! - but hey its 6 fish) and now Tyson's face folds smell like stinky fish too.

    I am aware it could "possibly" be yeast, but he has no gunk, no brown. Its just moist and stinks! I keep it dry as much as I can, and clean it daily but the smell doesn't go away. He's also scratching just one ear. But the ear doesn't smell.
    @Donnam - you feed Winnie this, did you notice any smells when she first started?

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Food is the main culprit of smelly dogs.
    Usko was about 7 months old when he started eating raw and what ever smell he had was gone. Voitto's been on raw since 8 weeks and has never smelled, except when he went dipping in our neighbourgs field after they had spread it with manure...this is him waiting his bath...-attachment-php-jpg

    Gosh I just love your boys. He's new on kibble again - the commercial raw we were feeding had a recall and he got very sick. I still am pissed about that. He was doing so well on the raw, besides the occasional soft poop. This new food is 6 stars, all fish.. it smells so strong. I don't know if that's why he's stinkin... and I wonder if it will go away as his body adjusts to it. I suspected yeast, but not 100% sure yet. Its so annoying being back in the same position with food once again.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    But will that smell go away?? Should I keep on with the Six Fish, or try the Regional Red (which is all meats)?

    Yes- Blue stunk when we first put him on raw. Maybe he was detoxing? lol
    Thought of taking him off but loved how much muscle he developed. It went away after a few months.

    Yes, food can develop different smells in them and fish is one of them .

    Maggie gets sick when she smells the Salmon-Tunalini! I counter their breath with crunchy Wellness apple and yogurt treats and it worked.

    Hey Jessica, I've been feeding Winnie and Jack both Orijen Six Fish for a long time and neither one of them smell fishy. I agree that the food smells, but they seem to love it. One time I accidentally picked up the regular adult food and the seemed to like it too, but I think it has chicken. There's also another flavor with wild game (I think). You can interchange them without doing it gradually, so you might try one of the others and see if the smell goes away? I also give Winnie and Jack Answers Fermented Fish, and it smells too. They do smell after they eat when I give that, but it's their breath and it goes away pretty quickly after they eat.

    Thanks Donna, I was thinking of picking up the Regional Red tonight and see if it goes away on that flavor. So I can switch them with no transition??

    That's what they told me at store--and I did it twice with no reaction.
