I was reading on the internet that when your dog smells like amonia, its a real bad thing and you should take him to the vet ASAP. Well I did and the vet didnt react at all when I mentioned the smell. We had blood work done and a urine test. Which only reveiled that he had crystals in his urine. The blood test came back normal. I am concerned there is something more going on with my dog and wonder if anyone else has experienced this. What do I do? His skin is really red and sore from scratching as well. We have him on antibiotics, antihistamins, special skin food and I am waiting to get the special skin shampoo.............

I know there is nothing worse than a smelly pug, I have 2 adult pugs who 90% of the time wee in their cage at night, even though I wait to go to bed until midnight so that I can put them outside for a tinkle one last time, what have you been shampoo-ing him with and how often, I know if can be awkward as if they smell strong of urine you want to wash it off but could become a vicious circle if bathing too much, My vet gave me Malaseb shampoo as my fawn pug is very yeasty smelling even when they have a dry night, he told me to bathe them both weekly which I was surprised about as I thought that was too often, but hey ho!! it really hasn't cured the problem and he will soon run some tests for an underlying yeast problem which I'm hoping it is as I want it sorted so she smells as nice as her temperament, I hope you get it sorted and keep us updated here as there is always someone with similar problems looking to find a story the same to help with advice x

LOOK UNDER YEAST/ALLERGIES
This may surprise you but dogs often stink to us. What I have found over the years it is this. They brush against other dogs pee!!! This happens when they pee and they pick it up especially off grass. I have not idea how you stop this but if it really bothers you you can buy doggie wipes, this will remove a bit of the odour and stop the need for constant washing which really removes the oils out off the coat and as Lisa says often causes more problems.
I have to say that owning a dog often means you just have to get used to smells you may not like, but it is something you really have to live with. I do think the yeasty smell that everyone talks about is the result of feeding dry foods and that to me is better than the smell of rotten teeth which some foods. especially wet food, also cause. Pugs do not have great dentition and many are not great chewers. There seems to be a lot of allergies about in the Pug community but it is something which I have not encountered in the 20 years I have had Pugs but this could be a result in bad breeding.

"Welcome to the Family Dana and Pug (name). You will laugh my Pug is melting in a temperature of 60 degrees F. How others of his breed survive in hot climates surprises us and I think him. Helena and Hektor."
