Why Do My Dog’s Feet Smell Like Fritos?

If snuggling with your dog has, on occasion, induced cravings for chips and salsa, don’t worry- you’re not alone. It’s perfectly normal! Well, maybe not the craving-chips-and-salsa part, but the corn chippy smell of your pup’s feet is. By now you’re wondering, “Why does this happen?”

Well, the reason is decidedly less appetizing than that yummy bag of Fritos. It’s caused by trillions of bacteria living on your dog’s feet. That’s right, your beloved pup’s foot is essentially a petri dish. But fear not! It’s totally normal and nothing to worry about. If the aroma becomes bothersome, you can trim the fur around your dog’s feet and wash them thoroughly. But really, who are we to judge? After all, we’re hosting a hundred thousand of the little guys per square inch ourselves!
