Just when our pup seems to have potty training down...out comes the doggie breath! Her breath stinks! She gets one teeny greenie a day to no avail. I brush her teeth every morning and we "dental floss" with her rope tug toy. I fear the culprit may be her retained canines. But they don't appear to be wiggly at all. Unless there are some back teeth that are retained...but it doesn't look like it to me. I guess I'll have to call the vet to see what's up. Nothing else has changed...she is still on the same diet from the day she came home. Anyone else have this problem?

Every day, after I clean up her face and comb the rest, I give Zo one 'yip yap' to clean her breath, so we can greet people without offending!
Yiip Yaps have herbs, etc., come in a tin case, and you can find at pet stores and also at Bed Bath and Beyond at the checkout counter here in CA!

Just as quickly as it came, the foul odor has gone. It must have been related to a tooth because she lost one over the weekend. I didn't find it, but I can see where it was in her mouth.
