Bad Breath in Dogs: Causes and Cures

For us two legged types, the causes of bad breath are usually tied to the things we shove in our mouths. Of course morning breath is another halitosis habit we all fight to get rid of each day too. But how about your dog? Could it be that his awful paint peeling stench of a breath is purely a bi product of eating dry dog food and licking his private parts. Well most folks would say yes, I know I would but it turns out “dog breath” is a serious medical situation or should I say it could be a symptom of serious issues.

most often, canine bad breath is caused by dental or gum disease, and certain dogs—particularly small ones—are especially prone to plaque and tartar. However, persistent bad breath can also indicate larger medical problems in the mouth, respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract or organs.

Do you let your dog lick your face? Really? Alright well let’s just you and I shake hands next time we meet. If you do care about your furry four legged friend and I know you do, make sure you read more on what dog breath can really mean to health of your dear friend.
