3 things you didn’t know about your dogs teeth

We know that bad breath is a common problem for dogs. Much like humans, it’s a problem that is usually caused by a build-up of tartar and plaque on the teeth/gums. Unfortunately, this build-up can lead to more severe problems in later life. For example; fishy dog breath can be a sign of kidney and liver problems. If you find yourself asking “why does my dog’s breath smell like poop” read on for some simple ways to help.

1. Buff away plaque and tartar

Four out of five dogs over the age of three will suffer from periodontal disease, which can lead to gum disease.

Bad dog teeth can lead to severe problems for your pooch! If bad puppy breath is causing you concern, it’s best to address the problem as early as possible; the earlier you introduce your pooch to brushing, the more tolerant of it they will be. Cleaning their teeth regularly can help stop your dog’s breath smelling like poop. Pick up a doggy toothbrush from your local pet shop. If you can, brushing your dog’s teeth daily is best, but even a few times a week will help keep plaque and tartar at bay. Like any kind of training; patience and a regular schedule will help your dog get used to brushing.
