Teeth brushing

Post by Shalista » Fri Mar 03, 2017 3:42 pm

So bax has always had AWFUL breath. He's also always hated having his teeth brushed. Once i switched him to raw his teeth became sparklingly white.... but the bad breath remains. i dont want to torture him with a tooth brushing if his teeth are clean, it's just the smell thats awful. any recommendations for minimizing doggy breath without brushing teeth? he really does love to give whuffly kisses and while I'm flattered i have to do my best to not pass out :lol:

This is where minty "dental" chews might actually do something! Delta's breath turned minty after my grandma got some peppermint toothbrush shaped chews. They did nothing for his teeth but did work on his breath.

What brand or ingredients should a person look into for dog tooth paste?

There are some good minty sprays that you can use, or mint-flavored dog treats! My Sasha also LOVES frozen raw bones with the marrow still in them, which further helps to clean teeth. However, if his teeth are super white and his breath still smells you might want to consult a vet to make sure that nothing is wrong physically.

Good luck :)
