Not only is it unpleasant for your pet to have bad breath, it’s also a sign of health problems and disease for your furry friend. There are several ways to improve the oral health of your dog. Here are a few.
Clean Your Dogs Teeth
Ask your veterinarian what is the cause of your dog’s bad breath. He or she is the best person to determine what’s causing it. Your vet will do a physical examination, lab work or even a simple tooth cleaning. Prevention is the best way to prevent bad pet breath in the first place. Just like humans, dogs need their teeth cleaned at least twice a year by a professional. You as the dog’s owner should at minimum clean the dog’s teeth at least 3 times a week.
Let Them Gnaw
Keeping a clean mouth is also keeping a active mouth. Letting your dogs gnaw on rubber chew toys will help remove plaque and create lots of saliva which helps clean the teeth. There are many flavored dog treats or bones that also help remove plaque and keep their teeth healthy.
Rover Is What He Eats
It’s important to feed your dog healthy food and supplements. There are lots of products out there that will help with the odor but it will also help to not only give your buddy TLC, but also healthy meals with plenty of nutrients. Nutrition is important for overall health, not just oral.
