HORRIBLE musty smell on dog's belly??
My 2 year old spayed schnauzer mix has developed a musty smell on her belly.
Her belly area feels damp to the touch, almost like she'd be sweating. She doesn't lick it or scratch. It doesn't look inflamed or red.
The smell is enough to make me gag. If I pick her up, the smell gets on my hands. And it is isolated only to her belly; her back, head, ears do not smell.
I boarded her at my parents for 2 weeks while I went on vacation, at which time they bought her a cheap dog food (Purina One SmartBlend Chicken) instead of the food I normally feed her.
Could this be the reason for this smell? What can I do?
