My cocker spaniel has a foul odor coming from the right front side of his muzzle. have checked his breath and teeth, and they are fine. There are no sores, etc. in or around his mouth. The odor smells like feces! He is a house dog, along with my other two cockers, who don't have this problem. I don't see him eating any feces, and I just can't figure out what is causing the problem! I have tried doggie toothpaste, etc. all to no avail. After bathing him,the smell dissipates, only to return in a couple of days.
He may have an infection around his lips? He may also have gum dz? It sounds like he needs a good exam by the vet. vetcare
