Nothing can spoil a nice cuddle session with your dog like bad breath.
Contrary to popular belief, bad dog breath ISN’T normal, and it’s often the first sign of periodontal (gum) disease.
Known as “the silent killer of pets,” periodontal disease is a serious oral health condition that affects 80% of dogs by the age of 3. Left untreated, it can take 2-5 years off your dog’s life.
What can you do to protect your precious pet?
Adopt a daily oral hygiene routine
If the thought of brushing your dog’s teeth each day makes you break out in a cold sweat, here’s good news …
Now there’s an easier way to give your dog fresh breath, a healthier mouth, and the best chance for a long, happy life. No toothbrush required!
Bad dog breath is most often caused by bacteria buildup in the mouth.
The root of the problem is plaque. Plaque is that icky, sticky film that forms on your dog’s teeth after every meal.
When plaque is left to build up, it can eventually harden into tartar, a rock-hard substance that can only be removed through professional cleanings.
Plaque and tartar are packed with stinky bacteria that grow and multiply quickly, giving your dog that less-than-fetching bad breath. Worse, they lead to periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease is known as “the silent killer” of pets for a reason: besides bad breath, there are often no warning signs until irreparable damage has been done to the teeth and gums.
How the process happens: bacteria from plaque and tartar begin to break down the gum tissue, leading to inflammation, infection and loss of tissue, bone, and eventually … the teeth.
As gum disease progresses, it can be very painful for your dog. While your pet may be skilled at a lot of things, communicating with you about his pain isn’t one of them. The natural instinct of dogs is to hide their pain.
Periodontal disease also causes that harmful bacteria to enter the bloodstream through the mouth. This can damage your dog’s vital organs, taking years off your pet’s lifespan
The good news is: periodontal disease is entirely preventable with daily oral care.
#1. Chew Toys & Treats
If you’ve ever had your favorite pair of shoes chewed to pieces, then you know the obvious perks to giving your dog his own things to chew on.
Here’s an added benefit: chewing can help get rid of the plaque on your dog’s teeth. Plaque is the main cause of bad breath and the catalyst to periodontal disease. Be consistent. An occasional chew won’t make much difference in your dog’s oral health, so daily is best.
Check out the Canine Journal’s review of the best dental chews.
What to Look for in Chew Toys & Treats:
#2. Be Selective About Table Scraps
Does your dog have a table scrap habit? We get it: those pleading puppy dog eyes can be hard to resist.
If you want to feed your dog a few bites from your plate now and then, no worries. Just try to be selective about the ones you give.
Meat and dairy are the two food groups that increase plaque and tartar buildup the most.
#3: Keep Those Dental Exams
Make sure to have your dog’s vet regularly take a look at your dog’s mouth. Your vet is your best ally in making sure your pet’s mouth stays healthy.

Our dog bad breath products work like magic to get rid of pesky bad dog breath and plaque.
While it seems like magic, it’s actually just great science.
Oxygene® is our patented ingredient that’s safe, effective and non-toxic for all members of your family … tail or no tail.
Oxygene® neutralizes Volatile Sulfur Compounds (VSCs) on contact … the rotten-smelling bacterial by-products responsible for bad breath. More information...
When Oxygene® comes in contact with VSCs (odor-causing) molecules, it oxidizes them and converts them into sulfite ions (odor-free).
In the process, Oxygene® helps prevent plaque buildup, giving your dog a leg up against periodontal disease.
With Oxyfresh dog bad breath products, you can count on fresh breath, healthy teeth and gums, and an easy, no-brush daily dental routine that could add 2-5 years to your dog’s life.
