Dogs love to show their affection for their owners by giving them a sloppy wet kiss, but sometimes their breath is very unpleasant. Bad breath is due to having a build up of bacteria; it could be a simple problem of plaque, where you would just have to get their teeth cleaned, to a serious problem with your dog’s digestive tract. If your dog’s breath becomes unbearable, you may want to set up an appointment with your veterinarian.
Here are some simple ways to help prevent your dog from having bad breath. What do you normally do when your breath is bad? You probably brush your teeth or place gum or mint in your mouth; do the same thing for your dog. You can brush your dog’s teeth with toothpaste and a toothbrush that is specifically made for dogs. When making your dog homemade treats add a little mint to the treat to freshen their breath. Periodically feeding your dog hard food and giving them a hard chew toy will help reduce the build up of plaque.
