My dog’s mouth smells like the inside of a trash can.
I mean, not all the time. Not even most of the time, actually. Most of the time, Kol’s breath is just fine, but every so often, he breaths on me and his hot, wet breath makes me gag. WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN EATING, KOL? Is there a family of skunks living in your jowls?
The first thing I did was check out Kol’s chompers to make sure there wasn’t a problem. Dental disease is a huge problem amongst pets and I’m careful to make sure I pay as close attention to the health of my dog’s mouths as I do the health of their bodies. A mouth full of bacteria can lead to much more serious issues like heart, liver and kidney problems, besides, no one likes having a gross, painful mouth.
Koly and Fe get their teeth brushed daily with an organic, natural toothpaste. They also regularly get a dental spray designed to fight common bacteria and raw, meaty bones, which can also help keep teeth clean.
Still, sometimes, my dog’s breath accurately reflects the amount of time he spends grooming his nether regions.
When that happens, I just like to give him a quick freshen up. Our homemade Minty Chicken dog treats are just the thing to freshen his breath and make him think he’s getting a treat at the same time, plus gelatin is legit good for your pooch.
