    Hi All,

    I have a female Mini Rex / Lop Mix age 3. In the last couple of weeks her scent from her scent glands has been insane. Every time you come near her or talk to her she starts to stink but wants to climb all over you and cuddle. I clean her scent glands regularly. Any idea what could be causing this?
    It's never happened before and she's well out of her adolescent phase etc. Has a wonderful temperament and isn't territorial, excellent litter habits. Could it be diet? We haven't changed anything though...
    Literally it smells so bad we feel like we need nose plugs

    Maybe their hormones changed the smell?

    Maybe but she's an adult and spayed so I'm not sure why.
