This this dog is in need of a vet visit to rule out a medical problem. The stink is the least of your worries...that is just a symptom. Have a complete physical done on him asap.
We were just at the vet for his second set of shots and he checked out a-ok health-wise, just a little smelly.
She said something about the vet confirming his smell, so I imagine he's been to the vet.
Ashley, I know sometimes Enzo gets like that. He's not the best about not peeing on the backs of his front legs. lol I'd go ahead and try the Mango Tango and just stay away from his face.
I think I would go for the Mango shampoo. Just pour a bit into a cup to dilute it with water before applying. Does his whole body smell like it, or just around his his backside? Could be he is just dribbling a bit on himself when he pees. Maybe use some baby wipes on him after he potty's?
I watch him a like a hawk when he pees and I don't think he's getting it on himself...it's kinda an "all over" pee aroma, like on his back and head, too. I went to double check the crate and it's fine, so i think it's just a residual smell. I also make sure he doesn't wander under Ranger when Ranger is peeing!
Mango tango it is!
Poor little baby. the only puppy I ever had was my BassettX and I must admit to no real knowledge. Could you wash him with the deskunking mixture(Dawn, Hydrogen Peroxide, baking soda)? If it will clean that up, it surely will handle a little pee smell.
He's cute little stinker though.
Aw, thanks! He had a lot of people come over to ooh and ahh over him at the vet clinic today but he's so timid with people. The vet told me to get out socialize the heck out of him with people. Little Rango was hiding between my legs and wouldn't even come out when people were offering him cookies.
I would rinse out the shampoo with white vinegar. The vinegar should deodorize him, just watch the eyes.
Excellent - white vinegar rinse it is!!
Thanks everyone! Hopefully the little guy gets de-stinkified!
Reddogs - I bought puppy shampoo for RANGER last year just because it smelled so good! I was so proud of myself for having puppy shampoo on hand for Rango! Good to know that i can use other stuff on him, too. Earthbath products are pretty gentle anyway. That's a great point about giving him a full scrub down...I didn't want to scar the poor guy his first night here so his bath was pretty quick and gentle. His second bath was also on the quick side so I'll spend a lot of time scrubbing him down today. Maybe I'll use a rubber curry mitt instead of just my hands, too.
