Does anyone have issues with their bassets raunchy breath? We have two bassets and our newest pups mouth smells like rotten meat. This has been going on since we got him. Even his puppy breath was extra pungent. We originally asked the vet about it around 8 weeks old and they chalked it up to puppy breath. I think he may be trapping food in his lip folds? It is especially ripe when he wakes up in the morning. I just want to be able to give my little ham bone some kisses and lately, it is NOT happening. Little dude needs a breath mint.
