Free Cure For Your Dog's Bad Breath!

Updated on July 16, 2010

A cure for the worst doggie breath!

 I don't know about you, but I simply do not like to smell bad things. When my little Yorkie Poo would lick my face in the morning, and her breath was bad enough to make me throw up....I knew I had to do something!

So, I went online, and everything related to dog breath was expensive. I decided to talk to my vet about it to find out what could be done with a minimum of time and money,

My vet told me that all i had to do was rub outside the two upper canine teeth with my finger, once a day!

WOW...could that work? It seemed too simple, but I figured I didn't have anything to lose, so I can it a try....and


Within 3 days the bad breath was gone....and to this day, it is still gone! All I do is rub her upper canine teeth with my finger! For bigger dogs, you can use a finger brush, but a plain finger would probably work just fine too.

What a relief! The entire family is grateful and the dogs seem to be happier too now that they are not grossing everyone out with their bad breath!

I hope this works for you....I am sure it will so give it a try. Just be careful with dogs that are not used to having people playing around with their mouths...they might bite you!

      Thank you, the Honcho Poncho constantly smells like burn corn chips or stale Doritios, and I rarely ever eat anykind of potato chips. I will give that a try starting in the morning. Blake4d

      magnoliazz 8 years ago from Wisconsin have a point there! I am a cat lover too, and you are right, their breaths are always sweet!

      My little YorkiePoo is the only dog I have ever had that has bad breath. I think it comes from her pushed in little baby face, the saliva does not flow as naturally as it should! just keep on rubbing those canines...who knows,,,it might even bring you luck! You are such a character, just looking at your picture makes me laugh! I love your poems too, very good.

      ROFL...I'm glad I have two cats, they don't lick their B%#@@ so no need to give them the finger on the felines/canine. They have sweet breath, must be from all those hair balls absorbing the breath. But seriously, they don't put the same things doggies put in their gobbers. Funny post, but oh so cute.

      I do it regularly, gee, I can hardly believe it worked. But it did. I may write about that. I need to consult my purple lizard. LOL

      LOL...Ralwus! And I was so looking forward to that spanking...darn!

      Perhaps you will now write a poem about dog breath?

      I am sooo happy it worked for you, to me it was just like a miracle. The only bad part you have to do it every day or the bad breath will return.

      Hello Ralwus!

      You don't have to rub it all that much. I usually give each upper canine three rubs with my finger and thats it! Like rubbing the magic genie lamp....

      I really hope this works for you, because I know how bad it can be when you have a little dog with such a bad breath you want to throw up! plus, when company comes its embarrassing too!

      Make sure you are rubbing on the OUTSIDE of the tooth..ok?

      Good Luck...maybe you will write a poem about rubbing your dog's teeth? I am cracking up already!

      Well, I am still at it, he don't like it much, but it gets done anyway. Maybe I should put something sweet on my finger first? How long do you rub them anyway? One hour enough? I think I am rubbing away his canines. This is the third day, I think. I have my paddle ready for tomorrow if his breath ain't sweet by then. Now remember, he is only 10 Lbs, so it should work, if it doesn't, I shall know it was just some twisted joke on ole ralwus. . .and. . .you know. LOL

      Thanks for the comments everyone!

      Ralwus, you are such a naughty character, what are we going to do with you? LOL!

      Hope this works for your doggie. Yes, it seems the little dogs always have the worse breath, I wonder why that is?

      My little Toy fox Terrier has this problem. the 3 bassets are fine, but the little one is a licker and he stinks to high heaven and beyond. I will try this, and if it does not work someone is getting a spanking. thanks for the tip, I am game. CC

      Are you serious? This really works? I was noticing yesterday as Mini Me was laying on my stomach kissing me that his breath was starting to get bad. He just had a birthday so I thought maybe it was due to him getting older. I thought I might start brushing his teeth with a toothbrush, but this sounds so easy and less intrusive. Thank you so much for this simple yet great advice. I hope and pray it works. Ill let you know. Lisa
