One of the mysteries in life is why some dogs commonly smell like Doritos or Fritos. A dog smelling like this is not a strange occurrence. However, a young French Bulldog named Bentley went to get a checkup at the veterinarian because he smelled like a horse. Bentley’s mom uploaded a video to her TikTok channel @maliamakaila about Bentley’s checkup.

The video begins with a French Bulldog lying on an exam table at the veterinarian’s. The text overlay says, “I just found out my six-month-old Frenchie is actually a mini-horse.” The veterinarian examines Bentley’s ears and head. Then she leans forward and smells Bentley’s body and says, “It literally like..” And Bentley’s mom says, “It smells like a horse, “ The veterinarian then responds with, “Yeah.” Bentley’s mom laughs. The veterinarian continues to pet Bentley and says, “But I don’t get it. I don’t understand. I’m just as confused as you. I don’t think he came from a farm.” The video ends with Bentley still lying on the exam table and the veterinarian examining his eyes.

This is too funny. Thankfully there is nothing seriously wrong with Bentley. In another video, we learn that Bentley’s mom went home from the veterinarian with a special shampoo for Bentley.

TikTok viewers had a lot to say about the video. @heartofchelseanyc said, “The bestest little Frenchy horse patient ever!” @ash43782 said, “Sometimes my Yorkie smells like soy sauce.” @keepingupwithk_ said, “My Bulldog smells like he works at a Fritos factory.” @ana_with_animals replied, “Mine smells like Doritos.” @taysauce42069 said, “Yeast?” @jake_hertz said, “Mine too. I have to give it a bath two times a week.” @lavishh_ada said, “Same. My Pomeranian, when we got her smelled like a horse.”

The most common cause of these smells on dogs is an infection. Most likely of yeast. This can be treated with a special shampoo. This is the same kind of shampoo the veterinarian gave Bentley’s mom. Bentley will soon be back to smelling like a French Bulldog.
