AHH! Puppy Breath —-So Sweet

Saturday, October 26, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

CUTE PUPPY 5Did you ever wonder why a small puppy’s breath smells so good (usually)?  It’s because of the healthy and mild diet of the mother’s milk.  Lactose in milk smells sweet. Digestive enzymes in the puppy’s tummy break down the proteins in the milk also add to the sweetness of the smell. South Florida veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Prior says puppy breath may be the result of the esophagus, which is still developing in young puppies, leaking gases into the puppy’s tummy. If you don’t like the smell of puppy breath, it could be that you are not used to it or if it really smells foul, it could indicate a more serious problem and should be checked out by your vet.

Thanks to “The Nest” website for providing some of this interesting information!
