Barking Wednesday ~ Doggie Bad Breath

Thanks for joining us for Barking Wednesday.  Each Wednesday I post info about my favorite guy ~ Kingers.  All kinds of info..products - homemade treats and eco friendly homemade products to make your dog's life a little nicer.

Some days Kingers breath is so bad..I am like out of here!

On those days I always give him one of my Dog Breath Treats. They are easy to make and keep nicely in the freezer.

Sweet Breath Treats 
Mix together:
1 cup of shredded carrots
1/4 cup of lime juice
1/2 cup of chopped fresh mint
1 cup water
Mix well then place in ice trays and freeze.

Whenever Kinger's breath gets bad I give him a ice cube treat.

Kinger's breath is not always bad ~ one of his issues is tarter and also what he eats.  I had the vet check him to make sure there were no underlying reason for his bad breath.

For that reason  - I also wanted share with you some of the reasons your dog may have persistent bad breath: 
  •  Dental disease
  •  Gum disease
  •  Respiratory system issues
  •  Gastrointestinal tract issue
  •  Organ issues

As always I recommend that you consult with your vet about your dog's issues. You can never be too careful when it comes to your bestest friend.

Have a Barking Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Hanukkah


  1. I am saving this for my friends who have dogs, this is good to know. we sometimes have their dogs over and man talk about dog breath lol. What a great remedy. Thank you for sharing

  2. I will have to try this recipe out for my fur babies. They love to cuddle, but their kisses are a little stinky. They love homemade treats. Thanks for sharing

  3. My mom and sisters have dogs. I think I may make up a batch of these for each one as christmas gifts for the pups. I love for the doggies to have clean breath, even though I abhor it when they lick my face! Doggies are great friends to humans, and they should get a gift on Christmas too!

  4. What an interesting recipe idea, you are so clever! I know of a few dogs who would use these treats ;)

  5. I am getting the ingredients today and make this for my Baby Girl! Her breath is not the most aromatic! lol! Thanks so much!

  6. I'll have to make this. One of my dogs is due for a dental cleaning, and his breath is not so good right now. We keep a parsley plant out on the porch that the dogs like to nibble on. I think that helps, but the dogs would really enjoy these treats even more.

  7. My dog really needs this!!! I'll give them a try!

  8. I wonder if this would work on cats too? One of our cats has bad breath a lot.

  9. Thanks for a great recipe to get Doggy bad breath out of my house... need to give it a try... thanks for sharing

  10. Our boxer has the WORST breath, so I'll definitely be making these for him!

  11. Love how you make healthy dog breath treats from scratch! So great for your dog. And the treat actually sounds pretty good!

  12. My Beasley has tuna fish is crazy bad, and we brush her teeth! Thanks for this green, and healthy tip to treat her stinky breath!

  13. What a sneaky and refreshing way to un-stink a stinker!

  14. I am all for natural, I do not have a dog but these are wonderful tips!

  15. Thanks for this tip. Our Allie has some really bad breath so I will have to try this.

  16. I don't have a dog but i didn't know you could make your own breath freshner for dogs.. that is so cool.. if I ever get a dog I will try this.. and I am going to pass this on to my bff she has a dog and so does her daughter...

  17. I'll have to make these ice cubes for my dog Pork. She's 16 yrs. old and gets very bad breath.
