Hello, I have a rescue German Shepherd, Kayto, that's been with me 5.5 years, we believe her to be around 8-9 years. She's a lovely nature and we've been so lucky with her. In the past couple of months she has developed a bad smell round her tail area. It isn't the fishy smell associated with anal glands, more of a musty smell with a strong pungency. She has been to a vet, which due to moving just before lockdown has meant I've not been able to be present during examination. The vet cleared her anal glands which she said were quite full and impacted, but the smell remains, and lingers on anything she's lay on. Looking online I've seen there can be issues with anal fissures, but there appear to be none. Does anyone know what this could be? It's not a normal dog smell. She has no other symptoms, her diet hasn't changed and her stools are normal. Her coat and skin seem fine. I'm trying to get her an appointment for a second opinion but it's proving difficult in the current situation.
