    Bad Mouth Odors

    A puppy should be introduced to tooth brushing as early as possible. Brushing prevent undesirable odors emanating from our dog's mouth.

    Aside from tooth decay and cavities, what are the possible causes of bad mouth odors?

    Easier said than done....just the sight of the toothbrush and toothpaste will make our dogs go on disappearing acts.

    It's been said though that giving dry kibbles is better than moistened or wet food because the latter can get stuck in the gums and may become a good breeding ground for bacteria leading to bad odors emanating from the mouth.

    I've read that foul-odor from the mouth can be telltale signs of much more serious problems affecting the stomach and other parts of the gastro-intestinal tract.

    Thus regular dental checkups and good dental hygiene are very important to ensure that our dogs are free from any life-threatening diseases.

    I know that I should brush by dog's teeth, but they will have NONE of it. How do you get a dog to let you brush his teeth?

    Try this thread. It has information on brushing teeth and how to let your dog get used to the idea of regular tooth brushing.

    Gum disease or gingivitis is also another common cause of foul mouth odor in dogs.

    Coprophagia (eating of feces) can also be a cause of bad mouth odor in dogs.

    It could be a number of things as mentioned here.....diet, dental issues or other underlying digestive issues. Try looking into a dog food that contains probiotics in it.

    I've never had much luck brushing my dogs' teeth, though I have tried it from time to time. It's just one of those things I don't have a handle on.

    Occasionally, my dogs have had bad breath, but thankfully it really doesn't last long. I've never done anything to counteract it, except waited for it to pass.
