Unusual Smell on Your Cat

Wednesday, February 23, 2022
posted by Jim Murphy

You usually cannot smell anything unusual on your cat. They are very clean creatures and very rarely emit any odor at all. Cats are always grooming themselves so they rarely develop a nasty odor. You should pay attention if you notice a smell from your cat. Usually this is a sign that something is wrong. One of the most common odors is a fishy, musty smell that is produced from the cats anal gland. The oily contents of these glands are often released when a cat is excited or frightened.  Sometimes the glands become clogged and need to be cleared out by a veterinarian. The foul smell may stay on the cats coat for a few days.  If the problem persists, ask your vet to give your cat a thorough exam. Infections ,abscesses or an impacted tooth can result from chronic anal gland problems. So before you bring on the pet odor removal products have the problem checked out.
