Smelly Labrador
Our wonderful friend a black labrador Ainsley has a terrible smell to him. We bath him regularly and keep his kennel clean. Is it something we are feeding him or is this common in Labradors.

Bad smell can be food or skin. It is probbaly a good idea to have yuor vet check him over to make sure his skin is healthy. A skin infection can cause a rancid smell. Anal glands also cause a severe smell and your vet can show you how to empty these. Wear gloves!
