Does your dog, and resultedly you, suffer from the unique smell of bad breath de la doggie?
More often than not bad dog breath odour is caused by the build up of plaque and tartar, or more seriously for your dog dental or gum disease, in your best friend’s mouth. Just like humans, dogs need regular visits to a canine dentist, otherwise known as your local vet! A vet will establish the best dental care plan for your pooch, and can suggest ways to keep your dog’s teeth and gums squeaky clean, which will be a welcome relief for your pup, and a breath of fresh air for you!
