Does your dog have bad breath? Bad breath is a result of bacteria building up on your pet's teeth and gums. Over time, this will cause an infection in the teeth, and may result in serious discomfort and illness. Regular teeth brushing and dental chews are the best ways to keep your pet's mouth healthy.
