      Frito Feet

      Looks like Sunny has a case of Frito Feet again. Needs some good solutions on how to get rid of it.

      Is it really offensive? Because Ive always liked the frito feet and have never had a reason to want to get rid of it! Ive actually had weird dreams about shoving my face full of corn chips only to wake up to a dog paw in my face. I always found it charming and funny, but maybe Im just a crazy dog lady.

      I've always called it "popcorn feet" and every single dog I've had has had it regardless of what they've eaten (i.e., no corn). No one has ever had any kind of problem with their paws, either.

      I love it. I also had a Basenji whose tummy smelled like rosewater and Danny's (mostly) head smells like brown sugar.

      What's the problem that you have with this? I'm definitely with MightyThor on this one.

      If it's something new and you think it's infection, check the ears too. As per my Vet that can be where it starts. Ear infection, itchy ears, foot in ear to scratch. Then Vet to to culture to see if it's yeast or bacteria. Oban's feet normally smell a bit like Fritos too, no infection.

      I don't do anything to fix this or prevent it. Some say it's yeast related. I supposed you could wipe the feet down with some rubbing alchohol.

      I always thought "frito feet" was just a normal smell on a dog's feet.

      Typically caused by yeast. I mix a solution of 1/2 Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar and 1/2 water in a plastic container big enough to hold a foot - make enough to cover the foot when the dog stands in the container. Then I do a foot soak for a a couple of minutes for each foot. Gently pat the feet off with a towel (don't rub). I cover and save the leftover mixture to reuse until it's gross. If your dog is well behaved, make up two containers to get two feet done at a time. This helps my little allergy dog. I do it a couple of times a day when her feet have flair ups.

      Thanks for all the comments. I actually don't mind it myself It's just we are going away this weekend & staying at a friends house. I thought it would be nice if she didn't smell too much. LOL. I like to be a good guest. Well I am bringing a blackberry pie over so hopefully that will put us in good standing.

      sounds like a good solution. Your puppy looks very cute.
