Yellow Labrador Retriever Smells Horrible after Swimming - part I

Subject: My Yellow Labrador Retriever lives in the water, but she smells horrible afterwards.

From: Susan (USA)

Labrador Retriever Name: Maggie

Reader's E-mail - Susan Writes:

Maggie loves to swim, however, as we get further into the summer, she’s starting to smell so bad that I can hardly stand to have her in the house!

She gets groomed regularly and bathed often enough. To rule out the obvious, the lake water does not smell. My Yorkie (who thinks he’s a Lab) and Daschund swim also and do not smell. We dry her off very well after each swim. Any ideas?

All About Labradors Response:

Hello Susan,

Thank you for your question. I have a couple of questions that I need to ask.

Is it a sour or rancid type of smell?

The next couple of questions are in regards to the location of the smell:

Is the smell to the whole body?

Is the smell toward her rectum area (musty metallic type of smell)?

Is the smell from her ears?

Do her paws smell?

Does she have any yellowish brown or greasy scales on her elbows or around her ears?

How is Maggie's weight?

What do you shampoo her with?

Any medical conditions with Maggie?

With all the email questions I receive, I always ask a favor of the person writing. If you have any photos of your Labrador Retriever, that you could email me, I would love to post them to the Labrador Retriever Pictures blog. You DO NOT have to send a photo to receive an answer to your question.

Get back to me at your earliest convenience with the answers to these questions and we will go from there.

Talk to you soon,
