Hi my posting name is Kelpie. We have a 8 year old by the name of Ella. Lately she has the odour of old well ripe Parmesan cheese. Quite “smelly”. Have changed diet, been to vet about odour. Only getting good quality kibble now. Vet suggested to cut out all wheat products for her. No meat treats of any kind. Ella does get hypo allergenic dog cookies as treats. She has been getting straight kibble roughly for a month to month half. Odour is better but not gone. It seems to be even coming out of her pores. Her skin “stinks”. Not as bad as it did. Has any one had similar issues? Any help would be appreciated.

Could it be yeast? Is she itchy too?

What did the vet think it was?

Hmm... have not experienced or heard of this. Jarn has a good question regarding yeast. I googled "Dog with cheese like odor" and the results also suggest yeast. I'd be interested in what the vet considered regarding the yeast.

Thank you for your responses. Our vet though it could be yeast, same as what we were thinking. She suggested to just give her kibble, no extra food mixed in. We have stopped giving her meat,poultry,liver etc. She is lactose intolerant also. Ella does not smell as bad but there is still a odour. Yes she has itchy ears. Have decided to continue just feeding kibble for another month and then review results. Will keep everyone updated. Right now her kibble is Kirkland kibble with sweet potato mixture. Stopped dog cookies with wheat products, now giving her hypo- allergenic cookies.

You might want to check with your vet and ask about getting a medicated shampoo. It might help. Otherwise your doing a great job. And welcome to the boards!!! welcome
