    If she smells like CORN CHIPS (put your nose down there, right at her paws!) then its a yeast infection, and you need to wash all of her bedding every few days, while treating her.

    1 part Apple Cider Vinegar
    1 part Hydrogen Peroxide
    3 parts warm water.

    Soak her paws in the solution really good, rub between her toes etc.

    Does she lick her paws heavily? Yeast LOVE WARM MOIST AREAS (Lick paws, put underbody on pillow and sleep) Repeat process

    Kill the yeast colony, and you'll have solved your problem (IF it is a yeast issue)

    The tough part, why is she getting yeastie in the 1st part. Food? Allergies?

    Yes it does sound like yeast, food is usually the reason behind it. A good antibacterial antifungal shampoo like Pharmaseb will help. The problem is each time you give a bath you are actually feeding the yeast colony if you ate not using something that will kill it. A apple cider vinegar rinse will also help. 25% ACV and 75% water.

    A vet tech told me years ago when we first got Tank, to give him acidophilus pearls. It's a supplement. He stunk so bad when we bought him from his previous owner. His hair was falling out...We put him on taste of the wild pacific stream first. We gave him 2 acidophilus pearls for the first week. Then one. Day for a few more days. The tech said it wouldn't hurt to give it to him year round if I needed to. I finally did that because it does help him so much with yeast. It's like givi g hi. Yogurt only better. I give both my bully's New Vet vitamins too. They are regularly drop shipped to my house. I spray a good apple cider vinegar on their feet and in their fur everyday and work it through. My dogs are getting more beautiful each day. Desertskybulldogs helped me finish off the tear stain problems. Life is good. ACIDOPHILUS PEARLS. A TINY WELL KEPT SECRET.

    I would definedly chance his food. Not all, even good foods, suit every bullie. Grains, potatoes and such can be the cause of yeast. You can wash her every day and it would not help with the problem. You'd just be taking care of the symptoms not the issue it self.

    Yeast has a very bitter sour smell so if that is the smell I would say yeast! Hope it gets better!
