I Have a 2.5 year old male peckinese "Roscoe". He is very loved, by the way! He returns much love also. LOL. The Problem- Peckinese dogs tend to have a skin allergy which causes them to smell rotten to say the least. Of course, he has been to the vet, but the pills don't seem to be working very well any more. And they are very expensive. Besides, he does not like to take them. Does anyone out there have any advice they can offer? I am disabled now is the problem see, and on a very limited income. I have already been through a lot of trial and error methods with this and Roscoe and I are both desperate! Anybody out there know what really works?
all due respect, but did are you keeping him bathed and groomed properly? I keep my female bathed at least every week or so. I did have a male years ago. Another question: how old is the male? is he "marking his territory"? is he "fixed"?
These things affect how an animal smells. My female is only a little over a year old, and not spayed. I plan to breed her at least a couple of times in the next couple of years. But, males that have not been neutered can emit a smell, especially if THEY smell a dog in heat...y'know what I mean?
Not to judge you or anything but do you keep your peek properly groomed? This breed needs at least 2x a week of bathing and brushed as well to keep all those skin disease and fleas/ticks away.
Know that a healthy dog doesn't have much bad odor to begin with. And if he has a nasty odor, then it means he has health issues already. This may range from allergies, dental health, skin, improper diet or blocked anal glands.
There are ways that I do to keep my dogs smelling good minus the baths especially during the cold winter months. First is I clean his ears. I use baby oil and a cotton ball. I put 3 drops in each ear and put the cotton ball inside and gently massaging his ear. Another is baby wipes. Baby wipes can be your best ally since it is so gently for your pet's fur. Know that each wipe is moistened with deodorizers, cleansers and moisturizers. These wet tissues works wonders in keeping your pet clean and smelling fresh. Cornstarch and baking soda are also useful around the house especially if you have a dog. Cornstarch can stop any itchiness that is realted to hot spots and dry skin. Both baking soda and cornstarch can eliminate that nasty scent from your pet. Simply sprinkle it over his coat and use a towel to gently massge it on his skin.
Hope this would help you out.
