Does your dog have garbage breath? Get #Tropicleanfresh dental help

What horribly gross things does your dog eat?

I asked my Facebook followers that question the other day. The answer overwhelmingly seems to be poop and garbage. Bleh!

Lulu has no problems knocking over a garbage can to get at goodies. She knocked one over just the other day. My mother doesn't seem to remember that Lulu and Jasmine are stronger and have longer legs than her dachshunds. They can get on counters and they can knock over trash cans. But she HAD to put garbage into a small can in Lulu's reach!

Nevertheless, poop, garbage and other gross goodies are no good for your dog's mouth... or breath.

Doggy bad breath is gross. Tropiclean keeps breath fresh

Lulu and Jasmine are the worst at getting into things they shouldn't. Walking them on garbage day is horrible, because they try to stop and sniff every can.

We have stray cats in our neighborhood, and Lulu will track down fresh, ummmm, treasure on our walks for snacking.

Beagles will do anything to eat some gross goodies.
They will fly to some gross goodies if need be.
 We all know, with a beagle on a walk you need to be a step ahead. But it's tough to do all the times.

I have to admit though... Lulu's breath isn't horrible. Jasmine's either.

You see, chronic bad breath can be an indicator of bigger problems. And gum disease and other dental diseases, if left untreated, can lead to health risks with the kidneys, liver, even the heart.

Dental health is as important to dogs as it is to people. That's why I'm a long-time Tropiclean® user.

We've used Tropiclean Fresh Breath Tooth Gel, the dental treats and the water additive.

But we like this new product even better.

Tropiclean fresh breath drops. Easy to keep dogs clean
Tropiclean® Fresh Breath Drops™ is a convenient version of the water additive. You just put 3 pumps of the drops into 16 oz. of water (don't do more than 3 squirts). The dogs lap it up. It's a great natural dog breath remedy.

 And you don't have to brush your dog's teeth, which is the best part. Lulu and Jasmine don't like that!

Lulu has no problems drinking her Tropiclean fresh water
The drops have a minty flavor, but Lulu and Jasmine don't mind it like they do the tooth gel.

What about the ingredients?

 Tropiclean's makers values natural pet products, from their dental treats to their carpet cleaner.

You can see their complete ingredients list online, including what each thing is used for.

You can find a store near you that sells Tropiclean on the company's website.

You can also follow Tropiclean on Facebook and Twitter. 


  1. This is a good Halloween gift or stocking stuffer, too.

    1. Dunno how Lulu would feel about getting it in lieu of treats, lol!

  2. I would love to get on my "raw feeder" high horse and say "if you feed your dogs a raw food diet, then you don't have to use products like this." But even raw fed dogs get bad breath. In my experience, it's due to...

    digestive issues (which I resolve with a supplement)

    rotting meat caught in their teeth (I brush our dogs teeth with a brush and coconut oil)

    a meal of green beef tripe

    I could brush our dogs teeth with coconut oil, but that doesn't help; neither does the digestive enzyme. We smell the tripe on their breath for several hours after the meal and that's when a few drops of this product in water is very tempting.

    Thanks for the review!

    1. Well this isn't really a review. That's coming. But you know, the ingredient list sources everything. :

      And you can match it up with the ingredients here:

  3. When I first saw it I thought you would have to spray it in your dogs mouth, so I was like... well I'm not sure how much they'll like that. But only having to add it to their water makes it super easy, so if it actually works then that's some pretty cool stuff.

    But since they aren't opposed to drinking mint flavored water, it makes me wonder if you could get away with just giving them regular breath mints... ;)

    1. Sam, that isn't a good idea. A lot of breath mints have Xylitol, which is bad for dogs. Besides, the water also helps keep their mouths clean!

  4. My dentist Hermosa Beach and his staff understand the patients' situation, and always manage to complete their job of making the patients' teeth healthier and looking better while being gentle about it.
