Yep, I think it's a dog thing. I read on this forum, I think, that it is a build up of yeast in the feet pads. Not 100%, but that's what I gathered from reading what I did.

I wouldn't worry to much about it. I've grown to like it. lol I'll never eat a corn chip the same way again.

Quit the Nutro...it's probably yeast. You are what you eat :))

EVO is not recommended for puppies, least that is what their reps always tell me.

It's a dog thing - all dogs have "frito feet" - some have more odor than others ;)

LOL...one of April's many nicknames is Frieta for her corn chip days. We wipe down her inner thighs and feet with baby wipes to help cut down on that smell. I think it comes from when the urinate...the urine gets on their legs and feet as they stand in the same area that they are peeing in.

The "frito" smell is also assocoated with mange. Check the pup over for missing patched of hair. If all hair is present and accounted for I wouldn't worry.
