My mini schnauzer has very bad breath. I have had his teeth cleaned and brush his teeth nothing helps. The vet can not find any health problems. So please can you help me. He eats dry food. I have resorted to ordering the plaque spay nothing has helped.

My 3 years old female jack russell terrier was taken to the vet for a probable urinary infetion. The heavy duty antibiotic did not help...we had a 2nd urine sample no cloudiness, no crystals, slight wbc count..nothing to be alarmed about, however urine was slightly diluted. Today Smores had a urinary, bladder, kidney ultrasound. They said the kidneys looked slightly irregular and would get a culture and see if it grows which would be a good sign and can be treated with the correct antibiotic or it would be kidney disease, not treatable, just mainted with meds, we caught this early on and she is only 3..any advice. Or anything you could advise me on. We are heartbroken after losing our pomeranian 5 years ago due to old age. This is our first health related issue. We are all devastated..however my 12 yr old daughter will be crushed
Please give me your thoughts!

My boxer was diagnosed with kidney disease a few years ago, however she is still alive today because of a kidney support package I got from Ask Ariel! asp?ItemID=cat-kidney-disease-crf-treatment

If anyone's pets have the same problem mine did, try this! It really works wonders!

It told me what was wrong with my dog and the reason I had to put her to sleep. She was in Kidney failure and two different Vet's missed it. A young Dr. caught it but it was to late. Perhapts older Vet's miss symtoms?

I totally understand what this person is describing about the extremely bad dog breath. My 3 yr. old springer has had the same problem for 6 months now, sometimes much worse than others. There are nights that I sleep with a pillow over my head to keep from throwing up ! I have described it as if he is rotting-up from the inside out. It seems to have something to do with his diet,and the vet has even suggested that he may have acid reflux, since there is no sign of dental problems. I have changed him to a sensitive stomach food and allow no table scraps, but if he steals something from the countertop, I can barely stand his breath. We will be going to the vet soon for the fourth time to try and solve this mystery.
