Tuesdays Notes-Out of the Ordinary Stuff.

So Today I heard a question....Do you smell your dogs paws? It is said that they smell like Popcorn or Chips! One lady said her dog's feet smell like Doritos.
Well The guy said , dogs feet are a prefect ground for Bacteria to grow and that smell is the dog body defense to fight the bacteria. Or for a better term.. It's the Bacteria breeding on your dog paws.
However the real answer is:
"Dogs also have sweat glands on the pads of their paws and on their noses that help keep these moist and functioning properly, the eccrine glands. On the paw pads, natural micro-organisms living in the surface layers contribute to the typical odor of dog paw pads, which is a little like the odor of Cheese puff snacks! This odor is much more noticeable on dogs with moist paw pads than on those with dry pads."
This is according to Veterinary Partner. so now when you smell that Frito's, Corn chip, Popcorn , Doritos or cheese puff Paws you know why.
Did you hear something out of the ordinary this week?
