Hemingway gets groomed once a month and he usually smells great for a few weeks after, but his feet smell like Fritos all the time! Is there a cure for this? I know some people like it, but I do not! Thanks!

I've read that the "Frito feet" smell is caused by a fungus that grows on the pad, and that it may be due to food allergies. Maybe try switching to a grain-free food and see if that helps?

Duke is on a raw diet and his stinky feet went away after I switched him to raw.

Thanks! We started a grain-free diet a couple of weeks ago. Fingers crossed that helps!
