You may share your life with some of these faithful and fun loving creatures who love bestowing kisses on you every now and then and you have no other choice but to give them a smooch back in return. So, it's important for you to keep their mouth healthy and halitosis-free. I understand it's hard work taking care of pets alongside your daily routine, so, let me tell you some simple ways - how to make dogs breath smell better.
For the tutorial given below you may need the following items: Toothbrush, Toothpaste (especially recommended for dogs), Beef marrow bones, Chlorophyll, Cloves, Cinnamon, Probiotics, Coconut oil, Neem oil, Dental wipes.
1. Brush Your Dog's Teeth
Having the 'dog breath' is not normal, it's a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Sick teeth and unhealthy gums lead to life-threatening ailments. Use a toothpaste recommended especially for dogs and brush their teeth at least once a week.
Your pup may not cooperate with you at first, that's because they are not used to it. Be careful not to hurt them. The video in the link given below will describe the brushing process for you:
2. Chew On Raw Bones
One source of bad breath is the building up of tartar in the teeth. Chewing on raw bones polishes your dog's pearly whites. Beef marrow bones will do the trick.
3. Chew On Dental Chew
Dispense a delicious dental chew alongside their meals. Anything containing some chlorophyll, cloves or cinnamon makes up for a good dental chew.
4. Give Your Dog Probiotics
Speaking of the bad bacteria, make sure your dog's mouth is populated with the good bacteria too. In trying to get rid of all the bad stuff in the mouth we may be unaware that we are chasing the good bacteria away. That's where probiotics come in.
5. Coconut Oil
6. Neem Oil
A brilliant botanical to eradicate bad breath. A tropical tree of the Mahogany family, Neem is an excellent supplement for promoting oral health in hounds. The seeds of the neem tree contain anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antifungal properties which help cure bad breath.
7. Dental Wipes (If Nothing Else Works Out)
If your friend is not comfortable with the toothbrush and paste, use dental wipes. These are already pre-moistened and you just have to wipe them against your pup's teeth.
We hope this article helps you in keeping up your dog's oral health. If you are unable to follow even one remedy stated above and you feel it's time-consuming, just brush your pup's teeth once a week with tea tree oil. It's the best cure.
