Smelly Dog Solutions

smelly dogWarm weather is upon us and this means tons of outdoor play. For some pet owners this also marks the beginning of smelly dog season. You don’t have to become another victim to a smelly dog. With the right tools on hand you will be able to keep your pet smelling fresh.

How many times have you bought the shampoo at the local pet store chain that promised a “fresh pet”? How many times after the first bath did you find the “fresh pet” smell only lasted about 24 hours? I personally have been there myself and was beyond frustrated. I felt like I had wasted my money and was left looking again for another alternative. Dog body spray was that alternative. At the time it made sense but after some research, was I wrong. Never should we spray our pets with a body spray to mask the odor.
Take a look at this ingredient list of a dog body spray that is labeled “natural”:
Ingredients: Water, Polyquaternium 7, Dimethicone Copolyol, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Polysorbate 80, Fragrance, Diazolidinyl Urea, Malic Acid, Citric Acid, Methylparaben and Propylparaben
What the heck? I have no clue what 1/2 of these ingredients are. Do you want us to douse your dogs in this to help them smell better? I didn’t. By the way, one ingredient I do know about and am horrified that I keep seeing it in dog products. Propylene Glycol, a derivative of anti-freeze, a know poison/toxin to dogs, cats and small animals. Why is this ingredient in our pets products?
Why not solve the smelly dog issue and NOT mask the smelly dog? Why not do it the healthy way? Why not wash it away with a product that is good for the dogs skin, promotes healing of the dogs skin?If your pet has a yeast issue on the skin, why not use a shampoo that is naturally anti-fungal that will help to wash the stick away and keep it away? If dog is mans best friend, then should we not treat them with this little bit of respect?Take a peek at what DogOsuds have to offer your furry buddy. The choice is easy and the benefits are amazing!

  1. Sandra Coffee says: has a great shampoo called hydraplex that does a good job with odors. we used it on our outside dogs and have had great results.

    • That shampoo does appear to be very beneficial, the only thing I would say to watch out for is the fact that it has oatmeal in it. Thats not necessarily bad but could spur on yeast infections if your dog is prone to yeast infections or has yeast present on the skin.

      Thank you for your comment,

  2. sorry, the shampoo was renuplex dog shampoo, not hydraplex
