My dog is a year 1.5 and she smells fishy. I bath her but by the next day she smells again.
Any ideas?

Anal glands need expressing. A fishy smell is always this - get can do it for you

Vet that should be

Definitely anal glands.

A long walk would usually do the trick for my pup. He’d do several poops and lots of squatting which would eventually drain them. Never had to take him to the vets with it.

Great I'll get her booked in, thanks

Please don’t keep bathing her, you’ll strip all the natural oils out of her coat, dogs don’t need washed like kids.
Have you been to the vets? Could be many things, anal glands needing cleared, can be a sign of liver/kidney issues if it’s the breath, I’d go to vet.

Butt glands for sure. I have had Dog’s all my life and my current dog is the only one I’ve ever had with this problem. It’s gross and it’s painful for the poor doggy and can make them quite ill if they get infected or become impacted. (Don’t google anal fissures 🤮🤢🤮)
