Probably a tooth. Try brushing his teeth :|

Wally's breath always smells like decaying animal carcass. Even after a dental it still reeks. He's just gross.

Here's how we resolved Petey's death breath.

Get the children's toothpaste with the little bear on it. It is for infants and toddlers and has no flouride in it.

Brush at least three times a week.

Give him a raw bone at least twice if not three times a week on the days you don't brush.

Death Breath will go away in about two weeks.

Wally gets raw bones, AND his teeth brushed every single day (and 17 teeth taken out less than 2 months ago now) and STILL the death breath!

I think squirrels and mice crawl into his throat daily to die . . .

Check the roof of his mouth. Dogs with deep ridges sometimes get hair stuck up in them and it rots - causing fetid breath.

Ew. This I have never heard of but I will do that. How do you think the roof of his mouth looks?

Get no flouride. Oh and you could try baking soda as well, instead of toothpaste.

Os' breath has started to smell pretty bad lately too...

It usually means its time for them to have a dental or, could be, worse case scenario- an abscessed tooth

Or he could just be blessed like Wally :)
