For some animals, bad breath is a temporary and brief concern that may only arise at certain times of the day (such as on waking), or after eating pet foods. For other animals, bad breath is a more severe and persistent condition.

    Tips for preventing bad breath:
    • Encourage your pet to drink fresh water daily.
    • A healthy diet is key – one that does not include too much protein. There are also natural pet foods that help reduce the risk of gum disease.
    • Try not to give your pets sugary treats such as ice cream and sweetened milk – these sugary snacks will harm their teeth!
    • It is normal for cats and dogs to have teeth cleanings once a year, so talk to your vet about the need for an oral check up.
    • If you are up to the task of brushing your pet’s teeth, the best time to start is when they’re puppies or kittens. Lift their lip on one side and with a gauze on your finger gently brush their teeth in a circular or back and forth motion, start with the front of their teeth and eventually work your way to the back teeth, using a natural toothpaste for pets. Do not use your own toothpaste on your pet (as it could cause stomach problems).
    • Feed your pet rice to help move food through the digestive tract more easily.
    • Giving your dog chews regularly will help keep the teeth clean too
