Why Does My Dog's Breath Smell?
Poor oral hygiene is usually to blame for cat and dog bad breath. Just like with our own smiles, plaque is the starting point for stinky breath. Left to party on the teeth, plaque will harden into tartar, leading your pet down the road of periodontal disease. Less common causes include:
If your dog or cat has a rotten fruit smell to their breath, this is a sign of diabetes. A urine or ammonia smell is a sign of kidney disease.
Because pets explore the world with their mouths, this can lead to bad breath if a stick, bone or even a blade of grass gets stuck in their teeth or gums.
Regular pet oral care checkups are vital because they can catch things like oral tumors. In addition to dog bad breath, trouble eating is a major red flag.
If your cat's breath stinks, it could be Feline Tooth resorption, which attacks the bone structure of the teeth. This is the leading cause of tooth loss in cats.
