What Does Stinky Dog Breath Mean?

Smelly dog ​​breath…all puppies have it, right?

Although most do, it’s not as harmless as you might think. Vets now know that bad breath in dogs (halitosis) can be a sign of a much more serious condition: periodontal disease.

What does smelly dog ​​breath mean?

Your dog’s breath could signal a fatal illness

Unfortunately, periodontal disease does not just stop in the mouth. Bacteria that start in the gums can enter the bloodstream and affect the lungs, kidneys and even the heart. Additionally, this condition can cause your dog to suffer in silence.

We know the solution. But we don’t do it!

We’ve all heard that we should brush our dog’s teeth regularly. Many of us, myself included, find this ritual particularly taxing due to the demands of daily life and the fact that most dogs absolutely despise this ritual.

While there is no substitute for brushing and periodic cleanings at the vet, there are some easier-to-follow steps we can all take to improve the health of our pup’s mouth.

Chewing can act like nature’s toothbrush. However, because typical dog food kibble is often high in carbohydrates, which leads to the build-up of food around the gums, chewing regular dog food kibble is simply not enough.

Dental chews are a great way to promote mechanical wear and remove debris and plaque from the mouth. However, our research shows that many of the products on the market contain a laundry list of questionable ingredients, artificial colors and preservatives, or wheat and gluten. (This research actually led us to spend over a year developing our own line of grain-free chews)

Another way to encourage your dog’s chewing is to use durable toys with an abrasive surface that helps grind away plaque.

The bottom line is this: Whatever you do, do something! Your dog deserves the best, and while it’s easy to forget about his dental health, it contributes immensely to his overall health.
