Is it a coincidence that February, the month we celebrate love and affection is also canine dental health month? I think not! Pups want to be kissable too. We are here to help you welcome those slobbery smooches beyond the amazing puppy breath stage. I have raved about the benefits of raw feeding before. One of the benefits is a healthier mouth but if you are not ready to jump into the B.A.R.F diet stay tuned because that is not what this post is about. Bad breath usually starts in the gut so what you feed your dog is a factor, poor digestion can cause halitosis. Using a digestive enzyme like Dog Smog Remedy gets to the gut of the problem helping with bad breath and with flatulence! Spray Dog Smog directly into the dogs mouth or add a few drops to water.
Another great option is Nature's Dentist. This probiotic powder works hard to eliminate bad bacteria, remove plaque and reduce enzymes that cause bad breath without destroying digestive flora. Just sprinkle it on food, the best part is dogs and cats LOVE the taste!
Then of course there is old fashioned brushing. If not introduced at a young age brushing can be, well a little more work than the first two options. To make life a little easier, KISSABLE has come out with a three sided toothbrush. I know, why did it take so long. The amazing design cleans the top and both sides of the teeth at the same time. Pair your KISSIBLE toothbrush with their yummy vanilla KISSABLE toothpaste and you've got yourself one kissable pooch!
Happy dental health month, may it be filled with lots of licks and cuddles!
