How to Keep Your Pet’s Breath Fresh
After a long day, is there anything better than coming home
to an enthusiastic greeting from your four-legged family member? Simply hugging
your pet can truly help ease your mind and improve your mood. However, if your pet
has a case of bad breath, you may not want to get too close! Luckily, there are
plenty of ways you can support oral health in
your pet and keep their breath fresh!
Brush Their Teeth
If you aren’t already, brushing your pet’s teeth can significantly help to improve their breath and oral health. There are toothbrushes and toothpastes specially designed for pets which are available in a variety of drool-worthy flavours to help them enjoy having their teeth brushed! Be sure to never use human toothpaste as ingesting these products could be dangerous to your beloved companion. The earlier you start brushing your pet’s teeth the more used to it they will be, but it’s never too late to start!
You can also consider using a breath spray specially formulated for cats and dogs to eliminate bad breath in your fur baby. Available in Mint, Bubble Gum, Strawberry and Cinnamon flavours, the new Slurp’n Fresh Sprays not only combat bad breath but also reduce plaque and tartar on your pet’s teeth! Just simply spray on your pet’s teeth and gums twice a day for a fast and effective way to promote oral hygiene.
Water additives can also be an effective tool in reducing bad breath in your pet, with no toothbrushing required! When used as part of your cat or dog’s daily oral care routine, Fresh Breath Oral Care Water Additives by Tropiclean can reduce plaque and tartar, prevent periodontal disease, support healthy gums and ultimately promote fresh breath. There are even specially designed formulas that also help support healthy digestion, an enhanced skin and coat and hip and joint health.
Dental chews are another very easy way to help reduce plaque and tartar in your furry friend’s mouth. With a wide selection of dental chews available that are specially designed to promote oral health, there’s no shortage of tasty options to keep your pet feeling happy and their breath smelling fresh! Not only will your dog thank you for the delicious treat, but their teeth and gums will too!
As raw food does not have added starches or sugars, feeding your pet a raw diet containing natural enzymes can help protect their teeth and gums and lead to better breath. In addition, feeding your dog raw meaty bones can help scrape plaque off their teeth. If your fur baby is on a raw diet and you’re looking to spoil them with a flavourful and nourishing treat, molds can be used to add some fun to their meal routine!
