    Default Her breath smells bad... smells like blood?!?

    Izzy's breath no longer smells like "puppy breath" and I noticed that her breath smells a lot like blood lately, old blood.

    She still eating Fromm Beef Fritatta and the only thing we did different and for a very short period (2 days) was to give her a pump of salmon oil in her food (since she is allergic to salmon I had to stop with that). But her breath stinks!!!!!!

    I checked her mouth and everything looks normal but last nite she spitted a big tooth (the last tooth from the upper jaw, the wider one). Could it be that the reason her mouth and breath smells like blood? Does teething makes them have bad breath???

    I just want to make sure it is nothing that I should worry about.

    I have never notice their baby teeth doing that, but I guess I never smelled their breath when they were teething. give it a day or two the see if it clears up.

    Tonkas breath was terrible and smelled like old blood for the entire time he was teething. He had blood on his chew toys and i would even find it on the carpet every so often. Just keep an eye out an make sure she isn't breaking any teeth off like half way because that can be painful and that new teeth look to e coming in nicely. It's just a crappy phase

    And don't be surprised if you see the new teeth coming in behind the current teeth, Bacon had that happen with a few of his, it looked like shark teeth. A day or so later the baby tooth would pop out.

    Thanks for the heads up! This group helps me to avoid many trips to the vet

    Okay so now she has the double teeth going on with the lower fangs ... Her breaths smells terrible and the old teeth is kind brownish in color, almost like is rotten. I touched it and it seems pretty hard and not ready to fall any time soon is it normal for the tooth to become brown?

    This happened to Cleo and the vet had to pop 2 of them out cuz they were basically rotting. her breath smelled like death but the next day after he did that it was fine again. I really think it's a baby tooth or two rotting in there.

    Interesting ... Linus breath smells "fishy" and I've looked all inside his mouth and can't see anything at all. Perfectly white and nice pink gums but still stinks of fish!

    Oh noo... please dont tell me I might have another vet bill before Christmas . How did you wait until you decided you needed to have them extracted? I wonder if I should wait or just go ahead and take her to the vet.

    We didn't have to deal with the vet to get Bacon's teeth out, he loves to play tug with me so that did all the work. He did get the double teeth thing for awhile though
