    Default Breath.... Stinky!

    Do you give your bully anything for their breath? Izzy only eats her kibble... chews bones like crazy (so all her teeth are clean), she's young but her breath now stinks!

    Any tip... recommendation.... idea... is welcome!

    If its not toofers then it is most likely stomach gasses... Probiotics or yogurt should help clear that stinky breath up. At least that worked for Harlea.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Thanks - noticed quite few threads yesterday mentioning yogurt. I give her but not consistently... maybe I will make it a permanent topping for her.

    I noticed Monty's breath changed after we changed foods. I am pretty sure the food is the cause of his as he has also been passing gas occasionally, not a lot thank goodness. It was pretty rare before. He has Kefir daily. Does this mean it is time to change foods yet again? Maybe a different protein in the same brand?

    What food do you feed him? Izzy has been pn Fromm's Beef Fritata since I got her (pretty much!), she does well on it. She can get gasy if she inhales a lot of air (playing too much).... if I over feed her or depending on the treat too.

    He is on Acana Duck and Pear and is doing well on it. I was thinking about changing to the Pork and Squash to see if that helped with the breath. He also had goopy eyes but found out that was because of ulcers so I don't know if it is worth the change just because I can smell his breath a bit now. It isn't bad, just noticeable where it wasn't before. I think I will continue for a while longer and see how we go and avoid another food change unless really necessary.
