Here's how to recog- nize if the stench signals a serious health problem and how to say bye:bye to bad pet breath. Bad dog breath or cat breath can certainly be un- pleasant, but more impor- tantly it could also be an indication of a health problem. Bad breath in pets is most commonly due to dental disease, including gingivitis, periodontitis, and decayed or abscessed teeth. There are other all too common factors that can cause bad breath in pets, non-medical causes in- clude eating malodorous foods or coprophagy (eating feces). When bad breath becomes a problem in rare instances, it could be an indicator of a more serious health problem. An ammonia odor may be due to kidney disease while an acetone-type odor can be a sign of diabetes. Other pet illnesses that include bad breath include possible symptoms of: sinusitis, rhinitis, neoplasia, autoim- mune disease, FeLV and FIV in cats, foreign bodies, and open fractures. Considering all these possibilities, it's best to see your veterinarian if the bad breath is lingering and persistent. You should always have your veterinarian examine your pet if you notice any odor coming from its mouth, as many of these causes are potentially life-threat- ening conditions. At minimum, most of these will cause discomfort for your pet. In most, non-chronic cases, brushing your pet's teeth is the simplest way to remedy the situation. I would recom- mend purchasing a pet specific toothbrush. There are brushes with longer handles for big dogs and brushes that fit over your finger for small dogs and cats. If you've never brushed dog teeth or cat teeth before, you may want to start with a damp washcloth or gauze passed over teeth to get them used to the sensation. Then you can switch to the toothbrush. Concentrate on the outside surfaces of the teeth. Place the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle at the gum line and use short back and forth, circular motions along the base of the tooth and in between teeth. You may only be able to do a few teeth during these early sessions, but don't get discouraged. Most pets can be taught to accept tooth brushing ff you are patient and take it slowly. Here are other tips that our experts recommend: 1. DON'T IGNORE IT. Since bad breath might be hiding a more serious medical condition, have a vet check it out first. 2. HAVE NECESSARY DENTAL WORK DONE. In some instances, dental work on your pet's teeth or gums may be necessary to eliminate the problem, so don't be surprised if this is what your vet recommends. 3. RELY ON BRUSHING. Once your vet has given the okay, you can incorporate pet teeth brushing based on the techniques explained above. 4. CONSIDER RINSES. Certain additives to your pet's drinking water and oral rinses may be effective at reduc- ing bad breath. Speak with your veterinarian as to which ones may be best for your pet. 5. CHOOSE THE RIGHT CHEW. Dental chews claim to clean your pet's teeth, but most dental treats are not effec- tive. Ask your vet what would be best to use. Set aside time to take care of your pet's dental needs not only for better breath, but most importantly for your pet's overall good health. 7hat's all for now! All the glory that was Rome .....
