Okay, so when we’re thinking about how to
cure a dog’s bad breath you want to keep in mind that there’s two types of bad breath.
There’s bad breath just because the dog has bad breath just like a lot of us do, and there’s
bad breath that’s a result of a problem the dog might be having that would need a veterinarian’s
attention. So, the first thing you want to check if it’s the first time you’re noticing
bad breath on the dog, sit, is you’re going to want to check its lips and its gums to
make sure that they’re not a weird color or that nothing weird’s going on. You also will
want to consider whether they’ve eaten something unusual that will give the dog particularly
bad breath. Okay now, assuming we’ve checked out that the dog doesn’t actually have any
kind of medical issue that’s causing the bad breath that would require a veterinarian’s
attention what we can do is get some breath treats which will; number one, interest the
dog because they taste good, but will also help to clear up that bad breath. And as you
can see, she can smell it and she’s excited by it. And of course, any opportunity to make
this into a training session is good too, sit, and give them the treat. And it’s usually
that easy, assuming it’s not a medical issue, to take care of most of the dog’s bad breath.
The other thing to consider is also diet. If you recently switched foods and noticed
the bad breath there could be something in the food that’s causing it, and something
like this; a simple breath treat, will be more than enough to take care of it.
