What To Do When Your Pet Has Bad Breath

Do you hug them every day? Do you go on long walks or do you spend long hours just lounging on the couch? Those are great ways to show your pet a lot of love and affection.

Do you take them on new adventures? That’s a great bonding moment.

Do you give them lots of treats? We have yet to meet a pet (any pet) who doesn’t like treats!

Do you kiss them? Do you let them lick your face? Chances are you’d never let them. And it’s not because it’s not the most sanitary thing to do. Chances are the reason why you won’t let Fido kiss you is because of the smell.

So what can you do about your pet’s bad breath?

Dental care is one of the most oft-ignored pet care procedures done to our furry family members. And yet this is one pet care procedure that you can do by yourself in the comfort of your own home.

Providing excellent dental care for your pet also reduces the number of health issues you and your pet will face down the road.

Getting them used to have their teeth brushed early on will lead to a long and healthy life filled with good habits.

The best way to introduce this is when your pet is done with his/her meal. Use a finger brush which you can easily slip on to your index finger. With a promise of a treat, start by slowly rubbing from the side to the front in short spurts. Provide a treat and repeat. Replace treats with positive reinforcement and patting as your pet grows older so you can ensure that their teeth are thoroughly clean every brushing session.

And with that clean mouth, you won’t have to worry about smelly drool if your pet decides to lick your face to show just how much they love you.
