Holistic Remedies for Bad Breath in PONS
Bad breath in dogs is similar to human bad breath and there are countless causes of this condition. Dog breath is much like humans.Digesting garlic, a meaty bone or too much plaque on teeth are major triggers of canine bad breath, much the same way as in humans. In the case of PON bad breath, some individual PONS are predisposed to have bad breath issues which are worse than others. Investigating causes can help in getting rid of bad breath in some cases. Please consult your family vet in all situations.
As owners know, PONS cannot assume the responsibility of cleaning their own teeth. Cleaning teeth is an essential part of grooming PONS and should be assumed by PON owners as part of regular grooming. There are countless numbers of commercial products that are available in the market that have been launched to address the problem of offensive smell in dog breath such as dog breath fresheners,breath-freshening strips that dissolve in the mouth, mints and toothpastes meant specifically for canines. Owners will also come across dog oral breath sprays for young dogs that have not learned to accept a toothbrush. There are also proven home remedies that may be useful in solving the problem.
The best way deal with bad breath, however, is through proper dental care. Clean your PON's teeth regularly and remove food particles that may get stuck between teeth. Dental diseases like gingivitis, periodontitis that are mainly caused by lack of dental care are the most common cause of bad breath in canines and proper dental care can help in avoiding any such condition.
