7 Natural Solutions to Dog’s Bad Breath

I live with a pack of really slobbery dogs, and I’m always concerned about their breath and oral hygiene so that I don’t have to risk hurting anyone’s emotions by turning down a sloppy kiss.

Dog halitosis is not typical and is indicative of oral disease. There are several easy home remedies for bad dog breath you may try to make those dog kisses more pleasant.

I’ve learned several tried-and-true home treatments for dog breath over the years.

When a dog has an infected tooth, what should I look for?

1. Give your dog a daily tooth brushing.

When dogs have bad breath, something is wrong. When a dog has terrible breath, it’s a symptom that something is wrong with their mouth.

Untreated tooth and gum disease may swiftly progress to fatal complications if left untreated. Please remember to give your dog a weekly tooth brushing.

Brushing your dog’s teeth daily is especially important if you have a tiny, pushed-in face dog or a brachycephalic dog like a Shih Tzu, since the shape of their mouths makes them more susceptible to tooth rot.

Give your pet plenty of goodies and use dog-specific toothpaste to make the experience of brushing their teeth more palatable. Get a paste with a taste you like, like vanilla. Use a pet toothpaste like Triple-that Pet’s contains tea tree oil.

2. If you know which oral chews to buy, you can maintain your dog’s bad breath at bay.

Giving your dog a tasty dental chew is a great way to get him involved in the fight against dog bad breath. However, not all dental chews for dogs are the same:

Choose one that has spices like cinnamon and cloves, as well as the breath-freshening chlorophyll. (Chlorophyll is doing its green thing, so don’t worry if you see your dog’s faeces is a little on the green side.)

3. Wheatgrass, which is rich in chlorophyll, is another effective natural treatment.

When I feed my cats fresh wheatgrass, I also offer some to the dogs. Using that unprocessed chlorophyll source to treat canine breath odor is a great idea.

4. Dogs may wash away their unpleasant breath by drinking water.

Pets may clean their own teeth in a number of ways, not only by chewing. Healthy Mouth Dental Water is a natural cocktail comprised of enzymes, chlorophyll, and other components meant to blast away bad canine breath, and it may be given to your dog to drink.

The active chemicals in Healthy Mouth help to fight nasty bacteria in the mouth, and when you switch your dog over to drinking water with the supplement, you’ll see a change in as little as a few days.

5. Probiotics are an additional barrier against canine halitosis.

Talking about bacteria, you should make sure that the quantity of good bacteria in your dog’s mouth much outnumbers the number of bad bacteria that might lead to foul breath.

There, probiotics show their effectiveness. Using a probiotic formulated for dogs may have a significant impact on your pet’s health and well-being, and not simply by preventing doggie breath.

(Tip: If you want fresher breath, try some probiotics every day and you’ll notice a difference in no time. The company behind EvoraPet, Organics, makes fantastic products for both dogs and their owners.

6. Coconut oil may assist with bad breath in dogs.

Good old coconut oil: It helps with digestion, the immune system, and metabolism, and it even helps with dog breath.

If you sprinkle a teaspoon of coconut oil over your dog’s food every day, you’ll notice a difference in his or her breath in no time, and your dog will adore it since coconut oil has a delicious, sweet flavor.

Coconut oil is used by some pet owners to clean their dogs’ teeth, a task that not even the most stubborn dogs can resist.

7. Neem is still another effective home treatment for dog halitosis.

Neem (a preparation of the neem tree) is another one of those fantastic botanicals that has numerous beneficial impacts on canine (and human) health. Neem is not only beneficial for the skin and hair, but also for the teeth and gums of both people and dogs.

Supercritical Neem Leaf Extract by Organix-South is what I give to my dogs; I give them one little black capsule twice a week, and I take one every day.
