    Default Terrible breath

    I of course know the reason for Buster's terrible bad breath or at least attribute it to lack of dental work-that being said he is 14.5 yrs old with seizures and I am not going to put him through anything like that unless life or death-so does anyone have any advice for me on how to mitigate some of the smell? I know there are things you can add to water? I do give him dental greenie treats (bite size) but nothing seems to help. Any advice as always extremely appreciated!!

    I forget the name of the stuff you add to water... hopefully someone else will know what it's called and post. There are also dental foams that squirt into the mouth and other products like that at most pet stores.
    I wanted to mention that if the smell is really bad, he might have an infection and antibiotics could help for a short while (until the infection comes back). It won't take care of the underlying cause, obviously... but it might be worth discussing with your vet. Ideally, if you could find a way to clear up his mouth without a risky dental or antibiotics, that would be best!
    Sending best wishes for Buster!

    Many thanks! I will talk to vet on our next visit regarding the breath again! I of course wonder if other underlying issues add to this-but hey for now, seizures are very much under control-only one in the last 8 wks (knock on wood)! I will look for the water additives and as you say perhaps someone will recommend one in particular-the foam sounds interesting but it would have to be hot dog flavored I think Ha! I get his twice daily pills down him stuffed inside a hollowed out half cocktail weiner!!

    I use Dental Fresh Advanced Plaque and Tartar. It's a liquid that is added to their water.

    For a quick fresh breath trick a raw piece of broccoli works for a short time! I’d guess that probably any piece of fruit or raw veg would probably work too

    Plaque off. My friend loves it. I can not use it since it is no ingredients listed and I the vet is reluctant because of Gordons bladder stones. You can use colloidal silver it will also bust the immune system
