Bad breath

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 internal organs.

Open your dog’s mouth regularly and check the teeth and gums. Teeth should be white in colour and gums pink.

Consult your veterinary surgeon if you are concerned about bad breath in your pet.

Some groomers will offer non abrasive teeth cleaning services
