Help Your Dog's Breath With Puppermint

When our breath does not smell the best we may consider it "doggie breath" However, when you dog has bad breath it may be a sign of serious health issue. It may be more than your pet's teeth and gums as their internal organs may be damaged as well.

Every February the American Vets Association tries to make pet owners aware of the oral health of their pets. National Pet Dental Health Month was established to bring awareness to pet owners and help improve dental and health of your pets.

You can also add cheese, liver powder or other vet-approved add-ins. If necessary, you can even switch to vegetable or beef broth.
