Default Bad breath!!!

Hello everyone

Any ideas what I can give my puppy to calm his bad breath. He falls asleep on my lap and when he wakes up his breath is the worst.
?????
I kind of didn't mind it to begin with but maybe he is starting to teeth it is getting bad!!!!

the breath should not be bad if it is it is a sign of some disease processes, preidontial disease, lip fold pyderma etc trying to cover it up is not the answer that is provide he is not breathing you just after visting the cats litter box.

Is he due to go to the vets again soon for another injection?

Just thinking maybe get the vet to check him out just to put your mind at rest, bella's breath is not stinky unless she's been outside chewing stuff she shouldn't have been

A young dog should not have breath problems, have you looked at his teath & gums. Ours get bones which I know is not for everyone, but great at helping keep them clean & also brush them a couple of times a week. It's a good idea to get a pup used to opening his mouth for you as at sometime they might need the vet to have a look.

Yeah he has been vets but they said he's lovely and healthy, nothing to worry about just normal puppy breath.
He's my first basset and I just worry about him alot!
His teeth and gums are all fine. Thank you for advise xxx

"usually" both of my hounds have good breath. Jake is 13 and his breath is fine unless he gets into "something. Ellie has sweet puppy breath unless she has recently "grazed" on Jake's Poo. (working on it, and it is lessening... thank god, that is just nasty!)

Bad breath, other than recent nasty "snacks" can be a sign for more serious problems. there are blood tests the vet can do (tho expensive) that can reveal a variety of issues.

However, if the pup seems normal and healthy, I would guess they just got into something that was nasty or didn't agree with them,

I LOVE puppy breath!! We get CET chews from the vet and they work great at keeping their teeth clean. Toby (our new rescue) has the worst breath but his teeth are really bad. We are waiting for him to gain weight so he can get a dental.
