I have a 9 yr old labador retriever that has an odor only at the lower back toward the tip of the tail.No where else is the pickle type smell. He has no rash, irritation, nor absess. He eats a good diet and is about 60-65lbs, his thyroid is high normal but then drinks lots of water. Could this be diabetes? What do you suggest?
This could be his anal glands. This is usually a fishy smell. The increased water intake can be many things including diabetes. vetcare
