Does your pooch’s breath smell foul?

Here is Why Your Dog's Breath Stinks!

Dog bad breath is almost always a sign of a health issue although it could also be simply the result of teething or a bad diet.

However, as a fur mom/dad you should be aware of all the reasons.

1. PERIODONTAL DISEASE

Gum disease is the leading cause of bad breath in dogs, help your pup keep a clean mouth by brushing their teeth regularly, and by using a good breath freshener.

2. TEETHING

When puppies teeth, it’s quite natural for their breath to smell bad. The good news is, this period doesn’t really take very long and you can help refresh their breath by using a breath freshener.

3. DIABETES

Uncontrolled diabetes causes an increase in ammonia in the body which can be smelled when an ill pup opens their mouth. This is a condition that requires veterinary care.

4. KIDNEY DISEASE

According to WebMD, dog breath that smells somewhat like urine could be a sign of kidney disease. It is important to get your dog to the vet if you also notice other symptoms like weight loss and a change of eating or drinking habits.

5. SINUSITIS OR RHINITIS

A stuffy nose and dry mouth cause bad breath even in humans. Luckily, as soon as the infection clears up the bad smell disappears as well!

7. ICKY DIET

You don’t always choose what your dog ingests, sometimes a piece of garbage or even cat poop can later make his breath smell horrendous!


Bad breath in dogs can be a common issue but in the off chance it’s not, it’s better to keep note of all the signs and symptoms in order to determine its cause.
