Bad smell from a dog’s mouth may be a sign of a health problem

13.10.2016, Hunter - Just Your Friend...

Close contact with your dog, proving your mutual love, is very important. However, a bad smell from dog’s mouth is not a pleasant experience at all...

Most common reasons of bad smell

Bad smell starts when we do not pay enough attention to regular teeth cleaning. Food remains stick to interdental areas where they are infected by bacterias. An inflammation of the oral cavity may also be one of the reasons of bad smell. In this case plaque remains on the teeth and changes itself to hardened tartar during a few days. Irregular hygiene of the oral cavity is risky especially due to the origin of alveolar inflammation or dental root infection.

Consequences of the neglected hygiene

An inflammation in a dog’s body as a result of poor dental hygiene may have fatal consequences. When the infection from teeth spreads all over the body, it may affect the livers, kidneys or even the heart. If you feel that you have neglected the cleaning phase, you’d better consult this with the vet.

Regular cleaning

The problems with a bad breath may be prevented by cleaning. The slimy plaque can be removed by a special tooth brush for dogs and dog toothpaste. This care is recommended to be performed once a week. Also peppermint chewing small cubes may be a great prevention; they may be acquired in various shapes, helping not only to clean the teeth, but also to massage the gingiva. The dog will be kept busy by dental goodies and his fresh breath will be guaranteed.

 

Care constantly of your dog’s teeth and get to your dog some toys or rewards which will strengthen the health of your best friend.

With love,
