Dog breath is never minty fresh, but sometimes that stink is a signal for a life-threatening problem.

Bad dog breath is caused by the bacteria that form plaque on your pet’s teeth.

But those bacteria can travel into the nasal passages and sinuses, leading to respiratory problems.

If they make it into the blood stream, they could wreak havoc in the liver, kidneys, or heart.

Brush your dog’s teeth daily and give him treats or toys made especially for dental hygiene.
