Dog's Breath

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to make your dog's breath smell better. I have been brushing their teeth with dog toothpaste and there aren't any nasty teeth in their mouth but man, it smells like they have been sucking on a dead fish! phee...w!

Can the smell be coming from their stomach? Need to change their food? Right now they eat Purina One.

All help is appreciated!

I wish I could help you but I have the same problem. My 5# poodle has asthma and with the constant drawing in and exhaling out of air, it gets pretty bad. I've had her teeth cleaned professionally by the vet and was assured this would help but it hasn't. And yes, she is on medication which helps the breathing but absolutely does nothing for the bad breath.

This is my first time posting on the boards. Hope I did it right!

Thanks, Allenlee. I'll try to look for it when I go to WalMart aka Wally World! Hope it helps as she loves to be near me!

Dog's Breath

Hi,
My dog is 12 yrs. old and I've been the whole gammet of things and finally went into a vet store and found these: " GREENIES'. They are dental chews that fights oral bacteria, reduce tarter and plaque and made of all natural ingred.. My dog loves them and they really do work. They are a little expensive $10.00 for 12 of them. They look like green dog tooth brushes and are 3" long. It takes a while for him to eat them so they do last longer than most other chewable treats. They are also nutritious and easily digestable. If you want more info: the toll free # 888-892-7393 it is Ohio, USA only. Address: PET CENTRAL 6100 Monroe St.
Sylvania, Ohio 43560
Good luck,
Babs

I was really curious about these Greenies, so I found their website if anyone else is interested

And here's the Harper Dental Chews that allenlee mentioned

Greenies sound like a great product but my dogs will eat them whole and not chew. One of my dogs even ate a FROZEN suet ball whole, another story for later.LOL

I am still brushing their teeth and going to change their feed and see if it makes a difference. I was wondering if anyone would know if Brewers yeast tablets would help?

I guess I'll have to check in with the vet and see if they have any "cheap" advice....yeah nothing cheap there!

Thank-you all for the ideas!

Before using any pet product designed to "cure" bad breath I would reccomend you see your vet to ensure that there are no underlying health problems causing the bad breath.
