11yr old has horrible teeth rot breath

Postby malibufishnsurf » Mon Mar 12, 2007 1:33 pm

My 11yr old has that breath.

Teeth starting to turn a little brown. Her breath is so bad, she almost starts to stink up the house when she comes inside. she wont let me brush her teeth. Is there anything i can feed her...pills...anything?

I want to play with her and hug her and everything else, she just smells sooooo bad its getting tough.

You can take her to a vet and get her teeth cleaned. If her breath smells like rotting, there is probably a rotten tooth or two that need pulled.

There is nothing you can do to save rotten teeth, they have to come out. Once the teeth are clean, there are things you can feed her to help, but nothing will reverse dental disease.

I want to add that you should definitely try to get it done ASAP, because a dental infection can poison the bloodstream and affect the organs of the dog.

Yeah Sarah is right on the money about that. I just had my 9 year old dogs teeth cleaned. They were brown and his breath was pretty bad. They found a abscessed tooth and a growth. Now he feels alot better. But just remember that after you get the teeth cleaned to keep brushing them every day or every other day!
