    Default stinky breath

    I have a 5 month old bulldog and his breath is starting to stink and his adult teeth are starting to come in. What are my options to help out with the sticky breath, I haven't brushed his teeth or anything.

    Well, brushing Mack's teeth will definitely help with the stinky smell. I think when the puppy teeth start falling out and adult teeth come in, there can be a more noticeable stinky breath. Also, diet plays a big role in dental/mouth hygiene. You can try things like Greenies for him to chew on (I have not tried these myself). And a good, safe chew toy for him to gnaw on (like a Kong toy), will also help with the dental hygiene b/c this helps with teeth cleaning.

    I brush my dogs teeth at least twice a week...its really important to keep their mouths clean and remove plaque. When he had his yearly exam the vet said his mouth looked great.
    I also give denta bones or the blue brand of denta bones a few times a week.

    could be the food you are feeding but it most likely is from teething....

    Well I feed him the Kirklands Puppy food, that was what the breeder was feeding him and he has been very good with it. I thought about the dental bones and figured I would start brushing his teeth once more of his baby teeth fall out.

    Five-month-old Castor's breath has been rather bad too lately. The breeder told us it had to do with teething. Some new teeth have come out so we'll need to start brushing them.

    Be careful with that Costco food they recently had a recall because of the Chinese chicken they're using.
