Excessive Moisture

Dogs do sweat on their paw pads, there are sweat glands between the toes, when the sweat builds up and does not dry out, it will give a foul smell. We all know that bad smells are a perfume to Westie's, they will seek them out, roll in them, and if there is one to be found on their body, they will give it a good licking.

Sweat together with the increased moisture from the licking, will make a great environment for fungus and bacteria, and more brown staining. When you wash your kitchen floor, keep your Westie away from it until its complete dry.

When your Westie gets wet from rain, snow, or even a bath, get him dried quickly, and make sure the inside of the ears, and the paw pads are completely dry.

Warm wet environments are a great place for bacteria to breed

Warning, hair driers (Heat) can also cause skin and coat problems in Westie's, use them on a low setting, or just towel dry.
