    @ljds923: lj, you may also suggest to your vet to have his thyroid checked, if I am right about the above, if it does not seem to be allergies. A thyroid check in a bully is always a good idea anyway.

    No the odor emanates from all the pores of the skin. and it will be a reaction to a given food. rather than any other reactions. like itching,body parts. the dog may show no other reactions than the smells.you would be wasting your money on an allergy dermatologist. as it is close to 1000.00 for those tests!
    the least expensive/least evasive action is the food source!
    But as I have discovered many times. the individual dog does not process the base of meat which is usually a rancid combination of meats/by-products/oils/grease from the rendering plants to make the food. You can open a bag of good food, and smell. and then open a bag of common food from a pet store/petsmart/grocery store. and smell. it will make you sick!!! and defiantly remind you of grease/stale grease!

    No Lisa she did not because of the food I fed her. once a week and they were always nice smelling, yes she had to go onto thyroid pills for life but no smell once food was changed. I have never had any smell because I always have fed the top 3 foods on the market , in rating and research. but dogs can show thyroid off balance with a course dry brittle fur, or bitchiness,or temper, that is the number one symptom of a LOW --- thyroid.!!!! becoming skinny and still hungry and eating lots is a sign of over active thyroid!

    Update, Louie is doing much better now, he has switched to a vegetarian diet and it seems that dog food, was indeed the culprit. Louie was sensitive to meat proteins.

    @ljds923 I hope you don't mind I update this topic, because if you scroll down it has been found through many google searches.

    please try the Fromm food instead of vegetarian food, dogs are carnivores, they need protein most of all. then fruit and veggies, very little carbs, long term veggies consumption will cause life long issues.
    when the dogs have a body odor-- it is one of two things 99% of the time. poor quality food -- or a yeast infection over a major portion of the dogs body, for the yeast infection they will need a round of antibiotics, and several baths of 50/50 % apple cider vinegar/water. paws/ears/tail area/face wrinkles. but I have cleared up a German Shepard with a 80% body coverage of yeast infection coverage. odor on the body , will usually be poor quality food that has mostly meat by products (you do not want to know )with many chemicals also. please give it a try, and keep me posted.
    If you have a question regarding dog food, or behavior! call or e-mail me anytime.

    Thanks for the info.... Louie has been on some high quality foods and some low quality...nothing seems to change for him no matter what he is on... I have even tried meat diet only and that is when he was at his worse...The veg food helps but does not keep it totally gone... he has been on many, many rounds of antibiotics...
