What cause canine halitosis and what can cure it?
My aunt has a Jack Russell that has cainine halitosis and we’ve been wondering what causes it and what can cure it. Her dog is nine or ten years old.
Answers appreciated! Thank-you.
Halitosis is bad breath, just so everyone knows.
Bad breath is usually cause by periodontal disease in dogs. Check his teeth and see if they are white, or if they are yellowed an covered in plaque. In all likelihood there is a need for a dental cleaning.
This is a relatively minor surgery. The dog is anesthetized and the teeth are scaled, polished and sometimes treated with fluoride. The dog must be anesthetized in order for the teeth to be cleaned above the gum line. Depending on the state of the teeth there may be some extractions.
There’s not much to be done at home if a full dental is needed. To help prevent the need for this in the future the best thing is to brush the dog’s teeth regularly. Oral rinses, dental chews, and dental diets can all help but are not as effective as brushing.
what are the causes for halitosis other than dental problems & tretment?
Aside from bad bacteria that accumulates in your mouth, bad breath can also be symptoms of more health problems such as sinus infection, acid reflux, and other gastro-intestinal problem. Asking your dentist about can really help you get the right treatment. http://www.themouthdoctor.com/badbreath/11-badbreathdisease.htm has a list of bad breath causes.

I think my boyfriend has it. He brushes his teeth really thoroughly but about 10 minutes later his breath smells so funky
He may need dental work. Cavities can often cause very bad halitosis, since they are infections that need to be treated.
