My 14 year old cat has bad body odor

My 14 year old male cat (neutered) cat that has gum disease has recently developed bad body odor.  He still cleans himself and eats regularly.  He is strickly an indoor cat.  He has also become a bit lethargic.  His last blood test 6 months ago showed all measures in the normal range but all measures especially his thyroid were on the low side of normal.  Any ideas as to why he may smell so bad?

Hi, are you positive that it's his body that smells?  Have you tried to smell his breath to see if the smell is coming from there?  A bad tooth that has abscessed will smell bad!  Also, if the thyroid is on the low side, ask your vet for some meds to bring the thyroid levels up.  A low thyroid will cause a slow heart beat, weight gain, dry coat, and lethargy.  Might be worth looking into!

Good luck!
