ME, I was thinking of that. I am sure there are mom and pop health food stores in my area.

I personally don't believe dogs don't sweat.
You ever let your dog run around a lot, then hang out in a small room with them? They have to sweat.

dogs don't sweat?

When Sheba stays under a wool blanket for too long, her chest and belly feel slightly damp. It is back to normal once she is out on the air.

What is this then?

ACIDOPHILUS
This is a powder form of the normal, friendly bacteria that live in our intestines (called flora). Our intestinal flora helps regulate our digestion and stool patterns. Yeast also lives in our intestines. The yeast and the bacterial flora are constantly competing for space, and generally they keep each other in check. Sometimes, however, our bacterial flora can get depleted, such as when taking antibiotics. This allows the yeast to overgrow, which can then lead to a variety of problems:

ME, I finally bought the powder today! I am not only using it for Molly but for Logan as well. I hope to see results within the next two weeks.

I agree too that it could be yeast. If its wet and smells then yeast is most likely the culpret. How are the dogs ears ? Yeast tends to know no boundries and quit commonly goes into the ears. Yeast definitly has an unmistakeable odor to it as well, can smell that a mile away.

My Shelby gets yeast infections alot or so it seems, we treat her with bathes of apple cider vinigar and some ear care from the vet. When that fails she goes on meds to cure it.

Condensation from humidity. Dog's cannot physically sweat unless there is a medical issue.

I constantly have to monitor her ears. When we adopted her, her ears were so bad, my vet thought she had ruptured her ear drums. Since changing her diet, her ears have improved but I still watch them closely.
