Your Dog Gives You A Big Wet Kiss…Then…..UGH!

Saturday, October 20, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

You love to hug and kiss your dog but when he lays a big sloppy one on you, you turn away in disgust because his breath is awful. What can we do to cure this problem? Take a peek at your dog’s teeth. Flip his upper lip up to show his upper and low molars.  Are the teeth white and shiny or are they yellow and brown?  If they are yellow or brown, your pet may have plaque buildup or gingivitis.  He could even have advanced periodontal disease.  You need to take him to the vet if this is the case.

If this is not the case and his teeth are still white, prevent the problem by:

  • Brushing your dog’s teeth daily. Ask your vet for a doggie toothpaste. There are lots of flavors like beef or chicken that will entice your pet.
  • Give dental dog treats on a regular basis.
  • Feed a dental diet. Some products include ingredients to freshen breath and remove plaque.
  • There’s a new vaccine to prevent periodontal disease. Ask your vet if this would benefit your dog.

Take the time to prevent the problem before it starts. Give your dog regular visual check ups.

Remember, your pets count!
