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.
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.
|They will fly to some gross goodies if need be.|
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™ 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!
