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
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!
