A DOG’S breath should smell just fine in a healthy mouth. When a pooch has ‘dog breath’ it probably means they have some kind of dental disease.
Around 70 per cent of dogs and cats aged three and older have dental disease of some kind. Not only can this be painful, but can lead to other serious illnesses including kidney and heart valve infections, while clean teeth can help extend life. As such it is important to regularly brush your pet’s teeth with specially formulated pet toothpaste. Strong, chewy toys are also good for oral health.
