RaisingRiver Posted August 16, 2007 Report Share Posted August 16, 2007 So.... River's breath smells like dead fish. Seriously, it's very very nasty. Her teeth are pretty clean though I don't brush them and she's been on one kind or another of premium dog food her whole life (not counting pre-8wks). I've only really noticed this recently - but it could have been this way for a while. Lately over the past month or so I've noticed that River has needed to IMMEDIATELY chew at something in her back end region. She'll be dead asleep and just whip around and go for it. Due to her butt fur, I can't really see where exactly she's going for but she often makes that 'oh that feels good/I gotta get it' little moan while she does it (geez, I feel dirty just typing that). She's been spayed for a year now. I'm wondering if it's anal glands - and if that's related to her bad breath. I've never had a dog with anal issues before, so I reallly don't know much about it other then what's been posted on this board in the past. Any thoughts? And remember she had that gas issue a bit ago - would anal glands that need expressing cause super stink bombs (ie. it smells like she actually crapped in the house).
