Bad breath in dogs, what to do?

In conclusion

But remember that, to make a true diagnosis, it is always necessary to verify by laboratory analysis that our suspicion is well founded.

If, once all the necessary diagnostics have been carried out, our veterinarian was not able to identify the origin of the bad breath, there will be no other option but to try to improve our dog’s oral hygiene as much as possible through daily use of toothbrush and toothpaste.

This practice is often complicated by the subject’s reticence but, with patience and perseverance, most of the time we will be able to obtain a certain degree of participation and / or resignation that will allow us to complete our task and return to enjoy a nice face licking.
