How To Get Rid of Dog Mouth and Body Odor

All dogs have some sort of mouth odor. The time to become concerned about it though, is when your dog’s breath has a foul smelling odor that simple will not go away. If your dog’s breath smells bad one day and goes away the next, then you shouldn’t be concerned. If your dog’s breath smells bad from one week to the next, then it’s time to make an appointment with the veterinarian. The veterinarian can make the distinction between a normal bad smell and a smell that could indicate a larger problem. It all depends on what the mouth odor smells like, and dog owners aren’t very good at diagnosing the problem themselves.

Mouth odor in dogs is usually the cause of dental disease or gum disease. Just like humans, dogs can also get gingivitis, which can be the cause of the foul smell. Bad teeth can also be a cause of the foul odor. Tartar not only cause odor, it can damage your dogs gums and loosen teeth. It is best to have the veterinarian take a look and clean the teeth if necessary.

The cause of body odor in dogs could be caused by a number of factors depending on their activities and how much freedom they are given. Rolling around outside, getting caught by a skunk, going through the trash and dog accidents (vomit, urine) are some examples of why dogs have body odor.

Here is a guide to help you select the best dog odor control products:
  • Easy to apply
  • Safe around kids and pets
  • Guaranteed

A variety of dog odor control products are available to break down the source of the odor. There are a lot of dog odor control washes and dog odor control sprays on the market. These products are made to eliminate undignified odor, including normal body odor, urine, feces and skunk.

There are also natural dog odor control products on the market as well, which are safer for your dog and mother earth. For example, the fragrance of natural cedar also repels fleas and ticks, and the fragrance stays with the dog wherever he goes.
