Puppy breath gone...garbage breath here

Cash is almost 5 months and in the last couple days his breath has went from being the cute puppy breath to pretty gross dog breath. Kind of like a mix between dog food and...well...&%#*.

I have brushed his teeth the last 3 days (a chore in itself) and it doesn't seem to be helping so much. I don't know if he got into something and it will go away, or if he's got some food lodged somewhere I can't get to.

Anyone have any good recommendations for bad dog breath?

He's probably teething. I wouldn't worry about it too much, once he's done (4-6 months) his breath should return to normal. Some dogs will eat poop, either their own or another dog's, but if you're sure that's not the culprit I'm sure it's probably just teething.

Just wanted to clarify that teething usually happens between 4 and 6 months old - it kinda sounded like I meant that teething LASTS 4-6 months, lol!

My puppy was teething before her breath turned to dragon (or worse) breath. She's almost 5 months, and the bad breath arrived just a few days ago. Brushing hasn't helped. Any suggestions?

Nothing like getting a big sloppy kiss from a puppy who just ate poo, or was digging for gold in the litter box. Haaack Tui!!!!

Often bad breath is a general sign of illness or weak immune system. A good imune system should be killing off the bacteria that causes odor in the mouth. Maybe supplementing your dog specifically to boost the immune system can help.

They also make a water additive that makes their breath smell better and doesn't change the taste or color of the water. It works for me! It even gets rid of poop breath as my puppy likes to try and eat it sometimes or gets to it before I can stop her.
