    DefaultGripe about PPP SS formula

    Ok, is it just my dog or does this food give your dog the worst fishy breath ever??????? It isnt his teeth or gums - we have looked, and he gets raw bones to keep them clean.

    Would brushing help? I know we are supposed to brush our baby's toofers, but honestly we have just never gotten the hang of it.

    At times it can just be AWFUL!

    Hmm, Larry's breath isn't too bad on the SS formula. I'm sure brushing would help, but I don't have much else to offer, as we really don't have a problem. Sorry!

    We use it and don't have fishy breath at all. Ours also get marrow bones a few times a week.

    This is not a new problem = but it has been a problem with all of the fish formulas he has been on. It was not an issue with lamb based foods at all.

    I suppose I probably need to take him to the vet to rule out any dental problems. Next time I go in for the anal glands will have them take a look.

    Suzie, does Cooper get ACV with his food? I started giving mine 1 TBSP with each meal and noticed a big improvement in their breath.

    No- he doesn't but maybe I should try that. Where do you get it - is it a grocery store item or a health food item??? I know its supposed to have all kinds of great benefits.

    We tried to brush his teeth tonight (which do look spectacular, and Kyle said he did ask the vet and the vet thinks he looks great, is not a candidate for cleanin). He doesn't LIKE the toofbrush!

    Sorry, I forgot to mention this yesterday, but I have heard that if you buy fresh parsley from the grocery store and chop up about a teaspoon to sprinkle in with his food, that it will help tremendously. That's what I was told by a friend. I haven't personally tried it, so I can't give you a first-hand testimony, but she swore it worked wonders.

    Yep, ACV - apple cider vinegar. The stuff you get from the grocery store doesn't have the healthful properties, though. I get mine from a health food store. The brand name is Bragg. It's raw, unfiltered, organic ACV. It's cloudy because it has "the mother" in it and that's what you get the benefits from.
