You should be aware that your little puppy or dog’s breath doesn’t come from excess tartar on your dog’s teeth as it is often believed.  In actual fact their smell breath and excess tartar on their set of nashers comes from an unsuitable diet for your dogs natural and biological needs.   This is why your dogs smelly breath is often accompanied by foul-smelling farts.

An unsuitable diet causes elimination reactions in the stomach, is a source of bad breath and a “pasty” tongue.  Therefore to offer these unpleasant situation you should offer your dog a suitable diet: without cereals (it is not a chicken) and with good proteins. In the meantime, there are still two tricks which can help relieve odors emanating from his mouth.
