This is too funny!
This handsome dappled Dachshund has gas that’s so loud that it wakes him up, and he checks out who’s farting!
This little puppy has just too much gas, and it’s hysterical.
But smelly dogs can be a problem. Just ask my friend Don Helverson, who writes the Pet Peeves Column, and is a middle school teacher in Los Angeles. “It can be a problem with dogs and offensive to visitors, but you should find out the cause because it can indicate something more serious,” he said.
First of all, find out about the shampoo.Some dog shampoos really do smell bad. Some attempts to clean your dog will actually make it smell worse.
Also, it could be one of several skin problems. It may be a troublesome coat. It could be a medical problem causing that nasty stench. If a bath doesn’t help and changing shampoos doesn’t end this soap opera, you could use a veterinarian’s ability to rule out serious troubles and to help solve some simple ones that may be difficult to solve on your own at home.
If you look around the house and don’t find skunks, or something they’ve rolled around in, or dead birds or poo, there are many possible medical problems that make dogs smell icky. When external sources prove unlikely, take a look at the infield. Ask yourself about some of the following possible internal problems related to smells.
Maybe their little huffs and puffs are not a breath of fresh air? Troubles with breath can indicate the need to clean their tongues, to brush their teeth (yes, doggie tooth paste is available at pet stores), or more seriously, bad breath can suggest more dangerous diseases, like internal infections, diabetes, and even kidney failure. All of those can create a foul atmosphere in the mouth, creating a horrible smelly breath.
There is something to do about it, though, check out this link.
