How can you make your dogs bad breath go away?

I just got a new dog and her old owners abused her, neglected her, and kept her in a kennel 24/7. So she only has about 5 teeth that aren't too pearly white and bad ribs. She also has bad breath that smells like sewer water... How can i fix her breath until we take her to the vet next month?

Get some dog toothpaste and a toothbrush and brush its teeth. Also make sure her diet is good. Often bad breath comes from stomach issues. Since she is new to you may be giving different food than she had and this could upset he stomach. You may want to start of with some rice and boiled chicken and slowly switch over to the food you are going to feed.

Thanks for giving her a better life.

Ain't that the truth! My poor Peke had to have all of his teeth pulled because I wasn't paying attention. He doesn't care at all, but I feel so guilty about it that I could cry every time I look at his poor mouth.

Go to a butcher and give her a raw bone. Yes, RAW bone. Just ask them for any leftover bones/scraps and they will give it to you for cheap! Just put it in the backyard and your dog will go to town! It really cleans up their teeth, just hose him/her down or give her a bath right after :) dogs can have raw bones because they won't break or splinter. Cooked bones are what they can't have. Hope this helps!

Dental care for my dogs has always been challenging, mainly because of the expense. However, there is a site called ihelppets, that is run by Hearts United for Animals, the most wonderful pet rescue that I'm aware of. They are worth researching, we have adopted two dogs from them--both wonderful companions. Here's the site, it talks about Leba Dental Spray--miracle cure for periodontal disease in dogs. I recommend it for prevention of a return. It will help your poor dog right now. Good luck, and God bless you for rescuin this poor dear! http://www.ihelppets.com/Featured.html
