Reese has such bad breath. We haven't changed his diet and when I look in his mouth, his teeth all look healthy.

Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for making his breath better?

What type of food are you feeding? Have you looked way down to make sure he didn't get a stick or anything small lodged in the back? Does his urine and pee habits seem normal? Does he have things to chew on to help his teeth...nylabones, kongs, marrow bones? Just a few things to consider.

We've had Reese to the vet recently and the vet didn't seem concerned at all.

He has kongs/nylabones/milk bones and it doesn't seem to do the trick.

His bowel/bladder habits are fine, lots of energy.

Do you really think it would be gum disease that could kill him? :(

My dog, Evan, has the same issue. I logged on to post to see if anyone had any suggestions. He's a healthy 5 yr old who gets to chew on marrow bones regularly. He eats Evo, and occasionally a raw diet.

The bad breath is recent. His teeth look pretty clean. I was going to have them cleaned last year when he was in for TPLO surgery but they wouldn't do it at the same time. During his pre- and post-op care, he ended up being sedated for x-rays four more times, and not enough to do teeth cleaning so I don't want to knock him out if it's not absolutely necessary.

I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions about what might cause this sudden bad breath? I suspect it could signify an underlying condition, but I suspect the vet won't have any particular tests he could do, given the lack of other symptoms.

Help.
