Bid Your Pet’s Bad Breath Goodbye With These 6 Tips

Dogs suffer from dental conditions that are not that different from ours. From dental calculus to plaque, there are a variety of reasons behind Doggo’s killer breath. Listed below are six tips to keep your dog on top of his dental hygiene.

Teeth brushing

The most common deterrent of bad breath, do remember to use only pet toothpaste as fluoride, an ingredient in human toothpaste, is damaging to Doggo’s teeth. While it is ideal to schedule a daily teeth brushing session, thrice a week brushing will also do a trick. Do try to develop a teeth brushing routine for your pet, to have it adjust to these sessions.

Diet matters

As meats are tougher to grind and break down, it is unsurprising to find chunks of meat wedged in between your pet’s teeth. At the same time, the type of meat a dog consumes will affect his breath. Beef and fish, for instance, are more likely to result in bad breath.

Cleaning of chew toys

While chew toys help to mentally and physically stimulate your pet, it is important to note that when gnawing on its toy, the toy may get in between your dog’s teeth and be stained with food residue. Especially so if it’s your pet’s favourite chew toy, constant and prolonged gnawing on the toy may result in the breeding of bacteria. In addition to cleaning, opt to pamper your pet with new chew toys and feel free to check out online pet shops in Singapore.

Professional teeth cleaning

Despite brushing your dog’s teeth daily, it is recommended to have a vet conduct a comprehensive cleaning session with specialised equipment. Not only will vets be able to spot any potential dental-related problems, they can prescribe solutions to existing issues. Some Singapore pet grooming services on the other hand, also offer dental cleaning services.

Dog breath treats

These dog treats that are available in the market are not only great for the dog’s teeth, they also enrich the canine’s body with necessary nutrients.

Add a lemon-y twist

An additional trick to improve your dog’s breath is to squeeze a lemon into their water bowls and fountains. Not only is lemon a natural disinfectant, it will help to remove food particles in the mouth.
