October 31, 2008, Newsletter Issue #260: Banish Bad Doggy Breath!

Tip of the Week

The most common cause of bad breath in otherwise healthy dogs is the build-up of tartar and plaque on their teeth. In order to correct this problem, there are a few things that you can do:

Take your canine to an annual veterinary exam that includes a dental checkup.
Feed your dog dry pet food that will help slow down the build-up of plaque and tartar.
Give your dog a rawhide chew or nylon bone to help get rid of plaque and tartar.
Don't neglect to brush your dog's teeth. He should have them brushed at least once a week.
Get a mouth wash or spray specifically formulated for canines to help reduce bacteria.
