    Default She stinks!

    It's been 2 weeks on these raw patties. So far no physical reactions at all. No vomiting, diarrhea, no shivering. I might even be tempted to say that her whole attitude has changed too. There's a bounce in her step that I've not seen before and her belly is turning pink again. This is fanfreakintastic! But OMG does she smell. Her hair feels oily and it stinks like old gym socks. Could this be from the turkey? I haven't changed anything else about her diet other than adding these patties to her sweet potato mash.

    I'm so happy to hear that Abby is doing great and finding her bounce! Usko eats raw and he really doesn't smell at all. I think that like with everything new Abby is probably just adjusting and the smell will go away if it is from the patties.

    As with Riisi, I'm thinking she's going through a detox period. Every pup experiences it differently, for Stig is was a lot of earwax which lasted for a couple of weeks or so. Punks' skin and ears were in such bad shape that we didn't notice any detox symptoms, everything must've blended in. lol.

    If you're really concerned, I'd call the vet to make sure.

    nuVet doesn't want me to give her a bath, he said brushing should be enough. He doesn't sleep with her! lol

    I'll give it a little more time. I just thought it might be the turkey.

    Thanks

    You could always get her some doggie perfume! Bre gets a little funky between baths so she has some apple/pear doggie spray

    Petco has some good smelling sprays. I've had this coconut scent for a while but don't have to use it very often. Sometimes I just spray a little on the carpet around my desk.

    I bought this lemongrass spray for her. Maybe I should try coconut. It might be stronger. The lemongrass does nothing but make her shiny.

    I still find the no bath rule so odd. Thanks goodness Abby doesn't go to daycare. You would not survive a week if so.

    A little off topic, but when Punkin moved in with us, the only things he came with were his crate, a puppy halloween costume, a small bag of Royal Canin Bulldog and a spray. Absolutely no toys. I guess they thought him smelling sorta nice was better.

    Sounds like it is going good, hopefully just a detox... How often did your vet say you can bathe her?

    nuVet says to never bathe her. There's no way I can do that. I'm supposed to brush her every day instead. I can do the brushing, but no bath? EVER? Yuck

    For me, her name was Abby
