We all love to let Spot smother us with kisses, but it’s definitely way less fun when his breath smells like dog food mixed with whatever he managed to dig out of the trash while you were out.
Pups need oral care too — especially smaller breeds, which are especially prone to dental issues. If the only time your pooch gets a good teeth cleaning is when he goes to the groomer or the rare occasion he lets you brush his teeth, he’s still not getting all the dental care he needs.
Make sure you keep his pearly whites clean between grooming appointments and vet visits with an easy-to-use foam, like TropiClean Fresh Breath Mint Foam, $10 (was $12). Unlike a toothbrush and toothpaste, all you have to do is direct the nozzle along your pet’s gumline and pump the foam — that’s it! A blend of green tea leaf extract helps protect tooth enamel, plus it helps keep your pooch’s breath minty-fresh.
While the reviews are mixed on the taste (some pooches love it, while others...not so much) it definitely works to keep doggy breath at bay. Says one reviewer:
“Let me tell you this stuff is worth its weight in gold! Not only does it work, it works for about two days! 13-year-old mini schnauzer lost some teeth, has bad gums—she’s a mess. Breath stunk up the whole room, nasty nasty. Two pumps around the mouth, and her breath is perfect. She hates it but we all love it...highly recommend.”
Even pets with “garbage breath” have been cured.
“My dog Brownie...tiny deer chihuahua...had the worst...rotten...garbage breath,” one reviewer lamented. “Absolutely horrific. When he licked my face I just cringed! Yuck! But after two doses of Tropi clean his breath has been transformed! This is a VERY good product. Bad breath be gone!!!”
It’s even safe for cats! If your kitty’s breath makes you think of a fish market on a hot summer day (gross) the foam will help zhuzh it up (and take care of their tiny fangs, too).
“My cats (yes, all three), have greatly benefited from using TropiClean,” one kitty purr-ent shared. “I was hesitant to get it at first thinking it probably wouldn't work but I am so glad I bought it! My oldest cat has had an awful time with his teeth...The foam did its magic because an hour later he was looking for food...I couldn't believe it! Now, my only question is, how often should you use this miracle product?”
