Dog breath can be more than a stinky problem. It could be a symptom of a larger health issue. While bad breath can be caused by a number of problems, the most critical sources of bad breath in dogs could be kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, lung disease, and even cancer. So if your dog’s breath smells bad, you need to have him examined by the veterinarian.
Tooth decay and gum disease can make your dog miserable, as you know if you’ve ever had a toothache of your own. So proper dental care is really important for his happiness and his overall health.
Check with your veterinarian about having your dog’s mouth examined and his teeth professionally cleaned at least once a year.
