Bad Breath Dog Can’t Find a Home

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Halitosis can really put a damper on a person’s social life. Well, it turns out bad breath is a major turn off for our furry canine friends too. According to a recent article in the UK Daily Mail, a rescued greyhound located in Essex has been passed up by over 300 could-be owners all due to his bad breath!

Poor Tommy the greyhound has a severe case of halitosis due to immune system problems. The UK Daily Mail says that this loveable dog was put on antibiotics to lift his immune system and treat a gum infection, but the treatment didn’t help with the foul mouth odor.

But things are looking up! Tommy’s temporary owner Elaine Sheppard has trained this smart pooch to gargle with mouthwash once a day. Of course, Tommy’s oral rinse isn’t the typical mouthwash; regular human mouthwash can actually be harmful to pets. Hm, we wonder if Tommy’s owner is using Dr. Katz for Dogs + Cats Oral Solution.  Just two capfuls a day in Benji’s water will dramatically improve the “just drank from the toilet” breath. And yes! It’s great for your frisky feline friends too.

It has also been suggested that feeding your pets brown rice or carrots may naturally lessen funky breath. It’s also important to take care of your pets’ teeth; after all, they can’t brush them alone. Regular cleanings are a good way to prevent gum disease – a major problem with many pets and a serious link to bad breath.

Hopefully with the press coverage and Tommy’s new dental regimen, he’ll find a new home soon. Good luck Tommy!

Spring Is Here: New Products, New Stores, New Studies!

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

First of all, we’re proud to announce the following:

An article in the UK’s Daily Mail last week about bad breath entitled “How Mouthwash Can Give You Bad Breath and Stain Your Teeth” mentioned many of the studies I’ve been telling you about over the years including the study from the Australian Dental Society linking alcohol in mouthwash to oral cancer.

What was surprising in this article is that they finally corroborated what I’ve been saying about the dangers of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (the detergent everyone uses in toothpaste — except TheraBreath). Specifically, it says:

“Alcohol based mouthwash has also been linked to an increase risk in oral cancer. Scientists in a study published in The Dental Journal of Australia in 2009 reported that the alcohol in mouthwash allowed cancer causing substances to permeate the lining of the mouth more easily. Some ingredients in toothpaste such as the foaming agent sodium lauryl sulfate can interact with the fluoride in mouthwash and deactivate it so that it loses its effect.”

So as you can see, it literally washes away tons of good stuff, including the fluoride if you’ve previously rinsed with a fluoride mouthwash!

I knew from day 1, that Sodium Lauryl Sulfate was bad news, but the good news is that TheraBreath Toothpaste is and always has been Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and alcohol free! So make sure to visit one of the NEW stores listed above (or click here to find more stores near you), and if you don’t find TheraBreath products on the shelf at any of the stores above, please do me a favor and go talk to the store manager and ask them why not!

To celebrate the new retailers, new products at our current retailers, and the fact that TheraBreath toothpaste does everything we promise it will do, here are some coupons that you can use at any of these stores.

Yours in good oral health,

Harold Katz, DDS

Bad Breath in Music

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Music is everywhere within our daily lives. We hear it in the car, at home, on TV and even at the grocery store. Musicians often say they write about everyday life which often includes love, hate, death, fear, job and even bad breath! Here are a few songs from songwriters that don’t tip toe around the subject of halitosis:

Tupac Shakur’s “Check Out Time” is one of the few songs noted to address morning breath.  Shakur writes, “Now I’m up early in the morn’, breath stinkin’ as I’m yawnin’.” The speaker has just woken up in a hotel room. Morning breath is a very common occurrence and can be easily fixed by brushing with TheraBreath toothpaste and then rinsing (without water) with TheraBreath Oral Rinse both before you go to bed and when you wake up. Morning breath is often due to sleeping with your mouth open, which dries out your mouth and leaves a great environment for anaerobic bacteria to cultivate bad breath. To prevent morning breath, make sure to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water each day. TheraBreath’s line of probiotics is always a great way to keep your breath fresh, especially in the morning.

Blink 182 has a funky song called “Does my Breath Smell?” It’s a big odd because the song doesn’t once ask the actual question or even mention halitosis. It’s mostly a rhetorical question the song writer asks because he is unable to attract members of the opposite sex. Bad breath has been listed as the #1 turn off in people looking for potential partners. Make sure to always have some TheraBreath gum or mints with you so you’re sure to be ready whenever a chance to find a date arises.
