Treating Bad Breath
In Dogs and Cats

by Gary Le Mon

Treating bad breath in dogs and cats is important because it often indicates a bigger problem such as dental plaque or tooth decay. In fact, bad breath or halitosis is a common complaint for many pet owners. A pet with halitosis can lead to embarrassment for the pet owners during family events, parties, and special gatherings.

What Causes Bad Breath in Pets?

Bad breath in dogs and cats can be caused by a poor diet. If pets are unintentionally fed a diet that includes spoiled foods, bad breath can result. More commonly, pets that are fed kitchen scraps can develop halitosis since the food is sometimes left for an hour or more before the pet eats it.

Even pets that are fed a diet of dry pet food or a combination of dry and wet pet food can develop bad breath. If cats and dogs do not receive dental care, it is possible for plaque to build up on their teeth. This is known as calculus buildup, and it is this buildup that can lead to bad breath.

The presence of teeth that are decaying can also lead to bad breath. Decaying teeth are often the result of poor dental care for the pet. If the decaying tooth is not treated, not only can it continue to cause bad breath, but it can also lead to health problems for the pet.

Occasionally, bad breath in dogs is actually caused by a pet who insists on eating things that they should not. Coprophagia or feces eating is actually quite common in dogs. While this behavior may not appear to be normal, certain studies have suggested that dogs eat feces as a way of identifying the animals that have produced it. Coprophagia has also been blamed on poor diets and underlying health conditions. Whatever the reason behind a pet’s indulging in a bit of feces eating, it can lead to bad breath when it occurs frequently. Unfortunately, coprophagia is known to become a habitual behavior in canines and so it is quite difficult to cure even with persistent effort.

Halitosis can also be caused by an underlying medical condition such as kidney and liver ailments. If your pet shows other signs of physical disorders, it is extremely important that you visit the veterinarian. Moreover, if you attempt to treat your pet’s bad breath but do not see any signs of improvement, you might want to visit the veterinarian and get a full physical to determine the status of your pet’s health. Of course, I always recommend a holistic veterinarian.

Freshen Bad Breath in Dogs and Cats with a Natural At-Home Remedy

In addition to preventing your pet’s bad breath by feeding your cat or dog a proper diet, it is important to provide dental care. A number of dental products for cats and dogs are available for the prevention of calculus buildup and bad breath. To avoid toxins, harmful alcohol and chemical ingredients, it is important to use a dental care product for pets that has been formulated with 100% natural ingredients. Look for a dental care product made with grape seed extract and grapefruit seed extract for the best results in preventing plaque buildup, oral infections, and bad breath.

I am so thankful I found your website!

"I have a 13 year old mixed Shepherd/Hound with 2 bulging disks, arthritis in his hips and cataracts that are starting to form. He has done a 180 since the first week of being on your products. He is playful and wagging his tail much more often than he has been over the past couple of years. I am so thankful that I found your website and I tell everyone that I know with pets here in NYC about your products. My dog hasn't limped since he started on the FlexaSure Dog Arthritis Cell Cleanse and Joint Hydration Formula and the Primalix Arthridia and Cataractin Formulas. I cannot thank you enough for making these products available. It has eased my best friends pain so he can participate in daily activities and given me more time with him. Thank you so much!"

My only regret is ...

"I am the kind of person who always speaks up when I think I'm not getting my money's worth for anything. I am also not hesitant to give praise where praise is due. With that said I bought some of your DentaSure teeth spray for my cat. I received it at the beginning of this week. After 3 DAYS of using this product her teeth have already gone from a scary looking brown and very unhealthy to a light shade of yellow. I am absolutely blown away by how fast this product has helped her teeth improve and the fact that it's all natural is huge to me (the vet has been pushing me to pay $720 for a cleaning including anesthesia!!). My only regret is not finding you guys sooner!! Keep up the great work!!!!" ~ Fred Brennan, Waymouth, MA

Vet Ophthlamologist confirmed Sonny blind. Thanks to Primalix Cataractin he can now see! Cheryl and Sonny from Wisconsin

"Sonny our 13 year old miniature poodle would brush along objects to find his way. March 2014 a Vet. Ophthalmologist confirmed completely formed cataracts. Risky surgery was not an option. March 28, 2014 Sonny started Cataractin and DailySure. May 2014 Sonny was seeing good enough to walk around on his own. August 2014 Sonny site is really good and he is running around enjoying his freedom and us. We are in AWE and so grateful for you helping others live a better life!"

Delighted it worked so fast
Carol and Max from Illinois

Carol C testimonial "I have to tell you how happy I am to have gotten the Cataractin. I received it in the mail a couple days after ordering it. I was very excited to try this on my girl Max. She is a 14 year old beagle. She is in great shape but has had trouble seeing. Her brown eyes were foggy blue with a whitish blue spot in both eyes. She couldn't see to jump up to sit with me. After just two days of taking Primalix Cataractin her eyes are looking way better.

"I was wanting this to work but am so delighted that it worked so fast. She is not completely better but she is well on her way. The best part is she can see to jump up in my chair now. My only regret is that I wish I would have purchased this 6 months ago when I first saw it on the web.
Thank you so much,"
Ms. Carol Camper and Max
