Belgian Mastiff Q&AAsk a Question
I have a 5 year old Belgian Mastiff that has a terrible body odor. The vet tells me that it is a skin disorder and nothing can be done for it. Everything I have tried has failed. Can you give me any advice?
I'm sure it's the food you're feeding your dog - must be allergic to it. I had the same with my Morkie. I fed him a grain-free food and not only was his digestion better, but he doesn't stink any more and his breath is better smelling too!
