I cured my dog’s bad breath with a natural product

Micky, my cute and adorable beagle, had horrible dog breath. When she hopped into bed, it would wake me up. I wanted a simple, natural solution.

Apples and Carrots

Beagles eat anything, so I tried the whole food route first. First, I fed Micky apple slices. I cut up two apples and gave her chunks throughout the day. No improvement in breath odor, but she did need a midnight outing to take care of tummy issues. Next, I tried carrots. No breath improvement there either, but her bright orange poo was the talk of the dog park the next day.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar has acquired the reputation of a natural wonder. Advocates claim it can fix anything from yeast infections on paws to bladder stones. Plus, I had a bottle left over from a broken New Years Resolution to drink a tablespoon a day. I put a few drops in Micky’s water bowl. She wouldn’t touch it. I dumped the water and tried a smaller dose. No luck. Sneak drinking from the toilet bowl was not helping the situation, so I mixed apple cider vinegar with peanut butter. That worked on getting into the beagle. Now I had a beagle that smelled like an apple-peanut butter sandwich, but she still had putrid breath.

Coconut Oil

On to the next miracle cure … coconut oil. Like the apple cider vinegar, I had a bottle of organic coconut oil in the pantry. (I’m very good at buying regimental cures, but not so good at staying on the regimen.) Discovery: Micky LOVES coconut oil. I poured two tablespoons over her dry dog food, and she gobbled. But, alas, her breath still stank after a few days.

Greenies Dental Dog Treats

After I ran out of inexpensive whole food options, I decided to look into commercial products for the canine breath problem. I’ve heard a lot about Greenies Dental Dog Treats, so I ordered a bag of the regular size. Greenies look like bones with a toothbrush on one it. The design is supposed to clean teeth and gums. They even control tartar! Greenies was my first success. Micky’s gum buildup disappeared within a week. And her breath was definitely better. Not good, but much better than pass-out stinky.

Bones and Chew Dental Sticks

Near success with Greenies spurred me on to try other “dental” treats. There are a ton of choices with organic, natural, and healthy ingredients. The one that worked for my smelly beagle breather was Bones and Chew All-Natural Dental Sticks. The churro-design scrapes teeth clean from plaque and tartar. They break apart easily (nice for saving a bit of money).  Micky’s general approach to food is to swallow fast and let her stomach do the hard work, but she chews on Bones and Chew for a few minutes. It took a few days, but Micky no longer has stinky breath. So life is back to cuddles and kisses.
