Why does my Basset Hound Stink?

Basset Hounds are scent hounds and as such, they will produce an oil to which other scents (tracking scents) can adhere. The ‘stink’ may be coming from the build-up of oil. Basset Hounds also have a tendency towards ear infections that will ‘stink’. Your best course of action is to take your hound to a vet and rule out any underlying medical reasons for the ‘stink’.
