There are a number of reasons your pet may have bad breath. Plaque build up, gingivitis, other oral diseases or perhaps dysbiosis in the gut. This is often fermentation of foods, poor gut bacteria and an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the digestive tract. Eating certain foods can help ease these obnoxious smells. Here’s how:
Sweet Potato chews
Chewing can be a fun and necessary thing for a dog’s mental health but it’s also necessary to clean their teeth. They would have chewed on bones and grazed on vegetation in the wild. Chewing sweet potato can offer similar enzymes and a bacterium that aids digestion and encourages the growth of good bacteria in the gut.
Chewing Papaya on a limited basis can also offer enzymes that may help aid teeth cleaning but also help breakdown proteins in the gut due papaya containing a proteolytic enzyme.
Chewing coconut is a great way to clean teeth and help detoxify the body. Bad smells will be gone in no time. Consider adding coconut oil to any homemade recipes, popping it into your pet’s food occasionally or rubbing it on a wound or dry skin.
