I have a terrier mix breed (dog). She is 8 Yrs. old and weighs 20 lbs. I shaved her for summer and her skin smells really bad. I washed her a couple of times but the smell is still there. When i pick her up the smell gets on me and my clothes. Someone told me it might be yeast infection. If anybody knows please let me know what to do and what to get. Thanks, charlie

Hi Charlie;
Please take her to a vet? She may have an infection of some kind. Your dog should not smell bad like that after bathing and grooming. She needs medical attention quickly.

She might need to get her anal gland emptied. Very inexpensive, and only takes a minute for the vet to do it. They sure can get stinky when they fill up. If the smell is strongest towards her bottom, it's a fair guess that that's what it is.
