Is Your Dog's Bad Breath Killing Him? Doggie Bad Breath Could Be A Sign Of Gum Disease (Or Far Worse)...
It's True According To The American Animal Health Association...
The #1 Sign Of Dental Disease Is Bad Breath And Here's The Scary Part...FACT:Gum Disease Is The #1 Illness Affecting Our Pets
(Their breath is their only way to tell you)
From The American Veterinary Dental College
"Bad Breath Is A Sign Of Gum Disease."
Unfortunately, other than bad breath, there are few signs of the disease process evident to the owner, and professional dental cleaning.
"Gum Disease Can Kill Your Dog."
As a result, periodontal disease is usually under-treated, and may cause multiple problems in the oral cavity and may be associated with damage to internal organs in some patients as they age.
How Gum Disease Starts:Whenever your pup eats, plaque is formed from bits of food and bacteria that collect around the gum line. If this plaque isn’t removed, in just a few days, it will harden into tartar that sticks to your dog’s teeth.
Tartar irritates the gums, resulting in inflammation, also known as “gingivitis”. Many times this will first rear its ugly head as bad breath.
(You can also see your dog’s gums turning from a healthy pink color to red at this point.)
You Want To Avoid THIS (It's Bad):Tartar Build Up If the tartar isn’t removed it will build up under your dog’s gums. This can cause the gums to pull away from the teeth, creating small open spaces that act as collection points for even more bacteria.
This picture below shows you what I'm talking about:
WARNING: If the problem progresses to this point, your dog has developed irreversible periodontal disease.
Causing pain, abscess, infection, loose teeth and even bone loss - you must have a daily dental plan to help promote healthy gums and prevent this from happening.
Researchers suspect the culprit is bacteria in the mouth which enters the bloodstream.
It works like this...
When the surface of the gums is weakened it can become compromised.
The breakdown of the gum tissue opens the door for the bacteria to enter your dog’s bloodstream.
Unfortunately, if your pup’s immune system doesn’t kill off the bacteria in her mouth it then begins to circulate in her blood, giving it the chance to reach the heart and infect it.
The link between dental and heart disease was discovered in a recent study involving 60,000 dogs with some stage of periodontal disease (and 60,000 without) conducted by Dr. Larry Glickman at Purdue University.
"Gum Disease Can Lead To Heart Disease."
"Our data show a clear statistical link between gum disease and heart disease in dogs," says Dr. Glickman. "For many candidates for heart disease, you're not talking about a single cause. But it clearly speaks to more emphasis on dental care."

This is why good daily dental care is so important for your dog.
Improving Your Dog's Teeth Could Save His Life:If you aren’t taking care of your dog’s teeth right now, don’t feel bad… You’re not alone! According to The American Animal Health Association, almost two out of three of pet owners don’t provide basic dental care recommended by their veterinarians. Considering four out of five dogs over the age of 4 already have some sort of periodontal disease, it's imperative to be proactive when it comes to the health of your dog's teeth.Unfortunately, routine dental cleanings at your vet can be both expensive and dangerous... The average cost to prevent dental disease in pets is $171.82. And if your dog already has dental disease it will cost you on average $531.71 to get it treated, according to a 2013 analysis conducted by VPI Pet Insurance.
And while these costs are not cheap, studies show what scares most people away is not the price - it's the process! To get your dog's teeth properly cleaned by your veterinarian, you will have to put them asleep under anesthesia. Unfortunately this can be a major health risk for some dogs, depending on the breed, weight and age of the dog.
And Here's The REALLY Scary Part...Not only does a typical vet visit for dental care cost you almost $200 (or sometimes more) – it can also cost your dog their life!
Here's just one story from the Sante Fe Scoop site:
“On January 23, 2012 I lost my dear Pug Chooie, she was only six-years-old and like a child to me. Chooie died after having her teeth cleaned at a Veterinarian who has been in business for thirty years. Upon telling Chooie's story to others I have been horrified to find out that the issue with Anesthesia and pugs is worse than I realized and that Chooie should have never had the procedure in the first place. A quick search on the internet pulls up thousands of results on the subject. I called a local Veterinary office looking for a new Vet and a girl who answered the phone knew about Pugs and the risks of being put under. A friend of mine has a Pug with bad teeth, when she asked about a cleaning her Vet told her straight out she would never make it through the procedure.”
Studies on this subject have been conducted and the results are pretty shocking:
WARNING: Dental Cleaning Creates Complications For 300 Dogs
The Journal For The American Animal Hospital Association did a study to evaluate the health risks of a ROUTINE dental cleaning. Over 300 of the dogs in this study had major complications including low blood pressure abnormal heart rhythm and even death due to complications of sedation.

So while I would never suggest you skip a trip to the vet, I am most definitely saying the most important gift you can give your dog is a good daily dental routine.
Think about it…
Can you imagine if the only time you brushed your teeth was at your annual dental visit?
Let’s face it - even if you went to your dentist twice a year, it wouldn’t take long for your teeth to rot right out of your mouth!
"Home Oral Hygiene Can Reduce Risk Of Associated Health Complications"
“Home oral hygiene can improve the periodontal health of the patient, decrease the progression of the disease and decrease the frequency of or eliminate the need for professional dental cleaning. Implementing home oral hygiene at a young age can help the pet accept life-long oral care. When properly cared for, teeth can remain in healthy condition in the mouth, and the risk of associated health complications can be reduced.”

The "Spray That Keeps The Doctor Away" SolutionIt doesn’t get any easier than to take care of your dog’s teeth every single day. Not only will you be instantly rewarded with more kissable, lickable, doggie breath - you can keep their gums healthier too…
Introducing A 100% All Natural 4 in 1 Dental Spray
"Good Dental Hygiene At Home Is The Most Cost-Effective Way To Keep Your Pets Pain-free."
“It’s something you do every morning, part of your daily routine—brush your teeth. While most people take care of their own mouths, they often forget that they also should take care of their pet’s teeth through a regular dental health care regimen,” One of the most common problems veterinarians see in pets is dental disease, and, unfortunately, these issues can get serious if untreated. I remind pet owners that an untreated dental infection can spread to the heart, kidneys and other organs, and suddenly become life threatening. Practicing good dental hygiene at home, in addition to regular dental cleanings by your veterinarian, is the most efficient and cost-effective way to keep your pets healthy, comfortable and pain-free."
