dog owners complain about their dog’s bad breath. Fortunately there
is a way to improve bad breath. Good dental hygiene is both good for your
pet and helps with bad breath. Bad breath is often a result of a dental problem.
If this could be the case it's important that your dog have his teeth checked.
A cavity or gum disease can be treated by a vet, but can be painful and problematic
if not treated. Brushing your dog's teeth is a great way to help bad breath
and prevent dental problems.
There are different types of brushes for pets such as finger brushes and
even a child's toothbrush can be used. Other items that aid bad dog breath
are rope toys that act as floss helping to keep gums and teeth clean. Also,
there are a variety of treats and 'breath mints' made especially for dogs.
Also, there is special toothpaste for dogs. Don't use human toothpaste
it can be harmful to a dog. Some vets also recommend having a dog's teeth
professionally cleaned. This can be quite a process, as a dog will need
anesthesia for this. However, it can be worth it especially for dogs with
chronic dental problems. A good dental plan helps keep your dog healthy
and happy and chases that annoying bad breath away.
