    Default Garbage Breath... Please Help!!!

    Hi my 3 year old Bully's Breath smells like Garbage. Switched his food from fish to turkey thinking that would help but no change! Vet says his teeth are great! Looking for suggestions i have tried bones, putting things in his water and i dont feed him people food.

    I can't believe no one has any ideas..!

    My bully's breath stinks too. Did you ever try using one of those rubber "tooth brushes" you put on your finger? Mine has good teeth too but I try to use it once a day to get the "yuck" out and clean his one or two teeth that tend to be the source of the build up that can stink.

    Also, I would talk to your vet next time you're there to see if he has any suggestions.

    I feed mine either homemade food or Wellness Core Ocean. When I feed Amber turkey it seems to linger on her breath so I don't use the turkey as often as I use to. I mostly feed them beef, pork and fish. When they eat the wellness core ocean they will smell like fish for a little bit but within an hour or two the smell is gone. I couldn't take the turkey breath so I stopped making things with turkey in it for mine. Good luck.

    Perhaps you could try giving him some plain yogurt (maybe a tablespoon or two) each day. It may help add some good digestive enzymes, and may improve his breath. They all love yogurt!(active culture)

    I was hoping to see some suggestions as well.... i started with the yogurt last week and hope it helps my Frenchie. Cheli and Banks both get all the same food items, but wow does Cheli's breath stink -- i thought it was going to have something to do with his teeth and our vet said no he looks fantastic - offered the stuff in the water, but I passed on it and started the yogurt based on an older thread.

    Guess we'll see what the coming days/weeks bring

    Molly has bloody breath, but she lets me go into her mouth. I'm always finding hair caught in her gums, and when I pull it out it bleeds. The other day I was "cleaning out her mouth" when I saw a small piece of hair stuck in one of the grooves of her pallet. Pulled it out and it kept coming. She had a whole groove full of hair and debris and it bled. I couldn't do this with all my bullies either, she's the only one who lets me. Although her teeth look pretty good I would still like to get them cleaned this year anyway to see if it helps.

    Wish I had some knowledge to help...Dudley's breath is fine. I was thinking, though, does Junior have any allergies? This may be crazy, but I have horrid sinuses and when my allergies are bad...my breath is horrid...just wondering if the same thing could be true of the bullies?!

    Well I must say 2 days later and Molly's breath smells much better. It was the hair trapped in her pallet for sure!
