De-Stinking Fido

KIWI MAGAZINE

Peee-eew! Even the sweetest of dogs can be downright smelly. Good thing natural options abound when it comes to freshening up your pup.

Ears: The dark, warm insides of dogs’ ears are breeding grounds for stinky bacteria and yeast, says Patrick Mahaney, an integrative veterinarian in West Hollywood, California. Natural cleansing drops, like Ark Naturals Ears All Right, will flush out debris to prevent bacteria buildup ($15 for 4 ounces, arknaturals.com). Talk to your vet if your dog’s stinky ears are also itchy or sensitive, as these may be signs of an infection.

Breath: Just as with people, bad breath’s usually the result of excess tartar buildup. Chewing on abrasive substances, like bones or rawhide chews, removes plaque to improve doggy breath and prevent more serious issues like periodontal disease, Mahaney says. Brushing your dog’s teeth (ideally on a daily basis) can also make a difference.

General B.O.: Bathing regularly with a natural shampoo can dislodge dirt trapped under the fur. Some options: TropiClean Berry Deep Cleaning Shampoo ($12 for 20 ounces, tropiclean.net) and Cloud Star Buddy Wash Shampoo ($10.50 for 16 ounces, cloudstar.com). Non-shedding dogs should bathe weekly, while shedding dogs only need a bath when they look or smell dirty, says Mahaney. Perpetually stinky pups may have allergies or skin infections and should be seen by a vet.
