  • Just brush their teeth. Your breath would stink horribly too if you didn't ever brush your teeth.

  • Bad breath can be a sign of dental problems, so try Dentastix or similar chewy treats to keep your pup's teeth clean. We've also seen improvement since we started using an Arm & Hammer rinse formulated for dogs. Petsmart carries it. It's odorless and colorless and goes into your dog's water.

  • I agree about brushing their teeth (use doggy toothpaste, not human) and maybe checking for inflamed gums or something stuck between the teeth. I would NOT give them Denta Stix or Greenies (ingredients are YUCK). I like Nylabones better. A lot of people give their dogs a raw, meaty bone once or twice/week.

  • Bring your dog in for a dental after trying nylabones and greenies(I believe there is recipes to make them)

  • Awww... poor guy. I rescued my old guy from a shelter. He has bad teeth and gums. Someone said you could poor some Biotene in their bowl, but I've never tried it. We brush his teeth when he's groomed only, because I don't want to hurt the poor fella.

  • Take your dog in for a dental cleaning and look up recipes for greenies. Those are really good for bad doggy breath.
