Yeast infection of the skin or ears? Dirty ears? In Bassets, with their long
ears, I would look there first!

Funghi, fleas, demodex... even one flea can make a sensitive dog scratch
himself raw. Try to use sprays that kill bugs before they reach the skin
rather than stuff that's given through mouth and such.

Demodex is much more difficult to deal with, and bad smell is one of the
symptoms - check with your vet.

Particularly, don't use soaps and shampoons. Wash him in clay baths -
sometimes there's clay available for human cosmetics (should be without
parfumes and such) which is a bit expensive. There's nothing wrong with clay
you dig somewhere out there, boil it, make warm slushy mud and wash him with
it as if with soap solution. Do not rinse, let the muddy dog dry out in the
sun, now that the weather is warm there's no need of a dryer, just brush out
the dust when it dries.

Oh. Thanks, Mel. I just saw a Basset Hound question and was hoping that
someone wouldn't give up a Basset because of their odor.
