Hi, I'm kind of at a loss as to how to correct my basset's horrendous breath! Gus is 3 years old, I've brushed his teeth, taken him to the vet to check his gums and teeth and still no improvement. I've bought all of the recommended chew toys, and still nothing helps.I've even changed his diet. Is this a common problem? I have a few friends who have bassets and not a single one of them has this kind of breath. I'm stumped! Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated.

Check the skin folds around his mouth. These can trap drool and debris and get infected. When that happens, the smell can be really bad.

about once a month I give Francis a new soupbone. They're uncooked thick bones that I get in the meat section of the supermarket. He always has to bury them first (I call it his "Secret Squirrel" act...he gets all mysterious and secretive during the process) but his breath has always been pretty darned good for a dog. :p
