Bad breath in your pet is usually a red flag that there is excessive bacteria thriving in your pet’s mouth — a common symptom of periodontal disease and other diseases of the mouth. The surface area on your pet’s teeth is prone to tartar and plaque build-up. The bacterium will eventually make its way to the gum line and below to cause further damage to your pet’s mouth and other organs. In this health-related problem, immediate treatment for this disease helps resolve halitosis (bad breath). The most recommended and beneficial treatment for your furry friend is to bring them into one of our veterinarians for an examination and mouth evaluation.
