Dog Urine Odor
by: Donna - dog-beds-n-beyond

Hi Julie

There are a some things to consider with rancid urine odor...

1. It may be a badder or kidney infection, please check with your Veterinarian for this and other diseases that may cause urine odor.

2. The anal sacs can secrete a rancid odor and may need to be expressed - please see http://www.dog-beds-n-beyond.com/dogsanalglands.html

3. It may be vitamin supplements, medications or food your dog is eating in which case you can try changing the diet to see if that helps.

Make sure your Akita is getting enough water so as not to become dehydrated.

Good luck and hope this has been helpful.
