I love when my dog comes for a hug and plays around, but with his bad breath, it’s hard to have him breathing close to me.
I did some research and asked the vet what we could do to help him (and ourselves) with the bad smell. Here are some of the options I discovered:
1. Rawhide bones
These bones can help reduce your dog’s bad breath by knocking the plaque off their teeth. Just be careful when your dog chews too much, you don’t want your dog to swallow the rawhide. Natural marrow bones packaged for dogs or raw marrow bones from a trusted store are also really good options, just make sure you choose the correct one for your dog’s size.
2. Ask your groomer to brush their teeth
It is recommended to brush your dog’s teeth every day. I honestly find it very difficult from my side, my dog is very anxious so I do it as much as I can (not every day). I have gotten in the routine of asking my dog groomer to brush his teeth- and it works out well!
Yes, Cinnamon! I understand that cinnamon is good for your dog. Just sprinkle some in their food and this also helps.
My grandma says that parsley helps to improve your breath after eating garlic, looks like it also helps dogs! You can buy dog treats that have parsley as an ingredient or chop some up and include with your pet’s meal.
5. Coconut Oil
There is so much buzz these days about the benefits of coconut oil, not only for cooking, the skin, and also for our beloved pets. It’s a common pantry item and it can have many beneficial factors for our four-legged family members too!
