Signs of a possible skin problem
When your pet has a skin problem, you should see your veterinarian. If your pet has a skin problem there will be signs, often times, more than one. These signs are important clues. Here's what you should watch for:
If you detect a change in your pet's odor, it may be a sign of infection. When your pet has a bacterial or yeast infection, it can generate an unpleasant smell.
Once you determine that your pet's foul smell is not related to rolling in something stinky or playing in the garbage, it's time to visit your veterinarian. Infections are easier to treat when they are addressed early, before other complications arise.
