Everything you need to know
about puppy breath
What is in puppy breath that makes it so irresistable?
The delightful and addictive smell of puppy breath is a combination of mild puppy food and the mother's milk.
Sadly puppy breath only lasts a few months. Once growing pups eat stronger foods and plaque and calculus/tartar starts to accumulate on their teeth, their breath is no longer sweet-smelling and pure.
For those of us that love puppy breath here are some tips to help keep our growing pup's breath as appealing for as long as possible
Start cleaning/brushing their teeth as soon as soon as you adopt your puppy. Please see our segment on How to clean your dogsteeth.
Clean your pup's teeth at least once a day, preferrably immediately afte it has eaten. Please see our segment on Dog dental care.
If it isn't possible to clean/brush your pup's teeth after it has eaten, try to finish off its meal with a raw bone e.g. chicken necks or a natural hide chew bar e.g. a pigs ear. Please see our segment on Your dogs diet.
Always feed your puppy good quality natural or organic food. Please see our section on Allergy free dog foods.
