bad breath in dogs

While most people just accept the fact that their dog’s breath smells like…well, dog breath…what they don’t realize is that odor might signify serious health risks with the potential to damage not only your pooches’ teeth and gums but also its internal organs.  To address the significance of oral health care for pets, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and several other veterinary groups have joined to declare February as National Pet Dental Health Month.

Bacteriologist and fresh breath guru, Dr. Harold Katz, is not only an expert on fresh breath for humans, he is also THE expert on fresh breath for man’s best friend. Dr. Katz is available to come in-studio with his electronic breath testing device, the Halimeter, and measure some pups’ breath on air, giving pet parents sensible tips on how to prevent doggie gum disease and get rid of bad breath in dogs for good!

Katz has been a featured guest on tons of local and national TV shows across the country.  Click here to view his most recent interview on Fox & Friends, and to access his full demo reel: http://www.viddler.com/explore/drkatz/videos/123/.

Dog Breath Remedy

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Most of us are used to the thought of dogs having bad breath, but that may not be a good thing. The dog could have serious health issues causing chronic halitosis. Bad breath is caused by the same anaerobic bacteria that causes this malodor in humans, and these bacteria generally give off a rotten egg smell, since a sulfur substance is excreted. True, dogs may eat and chew on things like rotten bones, and so on, but chronic bad breath can mean serious complications like periodontal disease. It’s a good idea to bring your dog to the vet to try and get a diagnosis. The vet will make some recommendations on what can remedy this condition, based on what causes it. Probiotics may even be helpful in remedying the halitosis. TheraBreath sells a formula specially designed for cats and dogs: just click here for our dog breath remedy. This way, you can make sure your dog kisses from Fido aren’t smelly!
