Bad breath in dogs, what to do?

Cause Intraorali

Bad breath

The intraoral causes include the poor oral hygiene, caries, gengiviti, periodontitis, stomatitis, afte and a whole series of lesions that can be accompanied by bleeding which, with its characteristic odor, contributes to worsening the situation, also benign or malignant neo formations and any local cause of alteration of the pH and of the quantity and quality of the saliva produced are to be considered .

Most dog owners, despite their good will, are unable to correctly assess the health of their puppy’s oral cavity and that is why, once this type of problem has been encountered, they should contact their own veterinary.

Under a targeted visit, the doctor will first of all evaluate the possibility that the origin of the bad smell is in the mouth and if so, he will implement the therapy that he deems most appropriate to the situation; in the case of an important presence of tartar, for example, it will be necessary to provide an ultrasound scaling, a rather simple procedure, to which most of us have already undergone, with the difference, however, that total anesthesia is required in the dog and this can represent an obstacle in those patients who may not tolerate it well due to age or other pre-existing debilitating factors.
