Bad breath in pets can be a sign of underlying disease for the pet and it is unpleasant for owners. Prevention is inexpensive once the teeth have been cleaned by the veterinarian. You can brush the pets teeth with a pediatric toothbrush and some pet toothpaste, start slow, brush one tooth today, another tomorrow, etc. until the pet gets into the routine, then expand to brushing all the teeth at once. Brushing once or twice a week is probably enough, daily is better.
There are many causes of bad breath in the pet. Some of those include metabloic diseases like diabetes, kidney problems. Then the oral problems like: dental tartar, fractured teeth, loose teeth, foreign objects between the teeth, ulcerations, tumors and the like. March is dental month at Wisemans.
