|Buddy, I think this might be a case similar to the flea thing. IE - you have said often how you never get fleas anymore since switching to raw. You and I don't live but probably 20 minutes from one another, yet while I don't see a flea on my dogs (or raw fed cats) very often, I still do see them occasionally, and when I do, I do a flea treatment.
Tucker never smells doggy or stinky, and can go a long long time without needing a bath. Phoebe on the other hand - after a couple of weeks, she is smelling doggy. I personally think what a raw diet does is give each individual dog the best shot at being as healthy as they can be. How healthy/flea free/non-smelly that is is going to depend at least in part on the individual animal and where they are starting from health wise.
Finn when I got him had this horrendous breath - I called him garbage mouth - and frankly that's probably exactly what he'd been eating. I was afraid he was septic - that's how bad it was - but lab results showed otherwise. After four or five months on a raw diet, the smell was gone and has never returned.
