Healthy Mouth in a Healthy Body

It’s surprising that we accept a rotten smell from our dog’s and cat’s mouth and dismiss it as harmless doggie breath or tuna breath.

Kidney failure and advanced diabetes can cause changes in breath odor, but most often bacterial infection along the gums and bones surrounding the teeth is the culprit.
