I wash him twice a week but it don't help how many times I wash him. The other day I washed him and next day he stunk again.but he looks healthy etc took him to the vets they said they need to do test and will cost up to £1000 they just wanna make money.

I would say you are just over washing, have you tried leaving it for a few months, use baby wipes if really needed, dogs really need the oils they have in there fur, especially in this wet weather, over bathing could be the reason Xx

As Janey you are over bathing, the change in food should help, give it a little time x

I agree with above. Cut back on the bathing, use baby wipes were needed and the jwb should help too Smile

Btw what do you bathe him with?

Can't add much more to the above, stop washing him Ledger only gets a bath if he rolls in fox poo or on the odd occasion where he has got coated in mud mostly just a good dry and brush does the trick

If Shadow smells like human feet/parmesan cheese, then it may be a yeast infection.

Have a look at http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/08/01/healthy-dog-vs-smelly-dog.aspx

Thanks for all the reply I only bath him twice a week as the house smells so bad I can't let anyone visit as its really strong smell I use medicated shampoo from Persephone and Lynda I was reading up on the topic about yeast I'm hoping the food change will help to I'll keep you all updated on how he gets on.

maybe try adding some coconut oil to his food ? .. and/or rub it in his coat ..
try a site search for 'coconut oil'

i was told by the vet .. that once-a-month bathing is o.k. ..
but not more often than that ..

Might be worth a trip to the vets in case there is an underlying health issue?

I'd definitely say a vets trip, doesn't sound right at all.
