When I brush my dogs teeth I also brush her tongue and her breath is always fine.

Would a medical condition cause my recently acquired 10 year old Australian Terrier dog to defecate two or three times during the night in the house?

This is great information. I was told by a friend to put 2 tbls of vinegar in thier drinking water and that would cure it. I have yet to try it. Thought I would ask my vet first.

I agree, poor quality dog food can cause bad breath.

Dogs can also have bad breath due to their dog foods.

I have a miniture dashound named Molly and she is usually very playful. In approximately 24 hrs she has changed. Eating and drinking very little and I have discover patches of skin peeling off her body. She continuously shakes and seems to running a fever. She is an inside dog and is let out in a fenced in back yard. Please help she seems very weak.

I found good answers to the cause of my puppy's
breathl. But because he'e only 6mo. brought me to be concerned, his puppy breath is gone. He's too cute to have bad breath.

Our staff at VitaHound is surfing the dog blogs again preparing reports for our research on bad breath in dogs. The preventative aspects of cleaning dog teeth seems to be relatively unknown to owners plus we would like to understand how the bad breath in dogs effects the relationship between owners and their beloved hounds. Forums such as Dog Channel's dog lovers allow us to gain exposure to a vast sample of opinions.

I use Plaque and Tarter Control by Pet Kiss, you can see my full review at trol-review

Sadie had really bad breath, I mean make you pass out kind of breath. After doing a lot of research and trying out many different products I found Plaque and Tarter Control. I put it in her water and that is all there is to it. It took about four weeks before her breath no longer smelled bad.

my dog, Amber, has really REALLY bad breath and i've tried everything- brushing, mouth wash, treats that help bad breath, internet searches, i even went to the vet; but she just said that our dog had bad breath, and that its not that uncommon. so i looked it up on here (just in case she was wrong or something) and still NOTHING!!!

My Mother just put it down to halatosis. Im starting to agree.

For Gary in
Re: your dog eating poop, it's called coprophagia, and there's 3 different types of it. There's a variety of reasons why your dog could be doing it. If your dog has been examined by a vet and has been given a clean bill of health, then probably the best thing to do is just keep the dog from having access to any poop (if it's in your yard). Sometimes they like to eat it because it's a game between them and you to see how much of it they can eat before you chase them away. If your dog is eating it's own poop, then make sure you're keeping it picked up and not letting it be available to "snack on". I had a coonhound that loved it (whether it was hers or some other pet's. I tried every thing available to put in their food, but the only thing I found that worked was to give her cooked zucchini about twice a week. When I first started giving it to her, I did it every other day for a couple of weeks. Then I went to every third day for several months. Eventually, I got to once a week. It must make their stool smell something awful because when I did feed it to her and then she'd smell her poop, she would pull her head away from it like it was the worst stuff she ever smelled. I even fed it to my cats, and it kept her away from their litterbox. It didn't stop her entirely from eating poop when we were out on a walk, but I'd say the zucchini cut that down to 50%. She ate about 1 cup of food a day, and I would only add about 1/4 cup zucchini to it. I tried raw zucchini and it seemed to work just as well, but she didn't care much for it. But she sure loved it cooked.

Hope this is some help.
