    Check the nose rope, ears, and tail pocket. There may be some yeast somewhere, make sure when you wipe it out you dry it real good too. Mac's rope was dirty today, I wiped him clean then he was all better!

    Hi! It could also be his diet. When I brought Fergus home he was on Royal Canine and stunk as soon as we switched him to a better food he started to smell better.

    Ftse is fed Royal Canine and he doesn't smell, I would also check the nose rope, ears and tail pocket.

    What are you feeding him? Stinky bulldogs usually mean they are eating something they are sensitive to. A food switch to something they aren't allergic to and the cleaning of yeasty areas mentioned above usually clears up the problem.

    Kimo is on Royal Canine bulldog puppy formula, and never thought he could smell because of it...it definitely is not yeast as he is cleaned with a wipe everyday in the "spots", but after a bath, he seems to smell a little after a few days??? He is crate trained, and he sleeps mostly on the plastic bottom, as he pushes the blankies out of his way, so I figured he just had a little "BO" doggie smell from sweating! LOL! I thought I heard of someone saying that ACV helps? I am going to look into that right now on the board...but any input would be helpful!

    @Kimo boyz mama if he starts smelling like frito chips after a few days its a yeast issue. Even if you wipe him clean the smell doesn't go away. If that is the case it probably due to the food. Bulldogs tends to do better on a no grain kibbles. The tend not to do well on chicken. A healthy bulldog can go months without a bath. Once you find a food that works for your pup there is a huge difference less gas, no smell and smaller poops.

    Check all the spots mentioned above and if it does smell like Fritos then you do have a yeast problem and need to look at a different food.

    Stinky odor is not normal. Food is the most likely cause for bad smell AND yeast. My baby's don't really smell at all. I feed raw and washed my Voitto for the first time when he was 6 months old and even then just for the fun of it.

    Both of these articles have great ideas about where and why the stickiness may be happening. Can you describe the stinky smell?
