There are 4 easy steps to ensure that your puppy or dog will never have super stinky breath again (as long as tooth decay and any other possible health issues are ruled out). And, if you follow all of these steps, your Beagle can have either neutral smelling breath, if not outright minty clean.
1. Brush your Beagle teeth daily, with the right products.
Committing to a daily routine and using the right products will keep bad breath away and can also literally save your Beagle’s life by helping to prevent tooth decay (known as a silent killer). You’ll want to use a high quality canine toothpaste that is gentle on the enamel but effective enough to properly clean away plaque.
If you use one that tastes pleasant to your Beagle, this is all the better; he won’t want to run away
and since he’ll be swallowing the paste, he may actually enjoy it. Made in the USA products flavored with natural ingredients such as vanilla and tea tree oil are recommended. Please never use human paste, as fluoride is highly toxic to canines.
2. Give a daily dental treat.
With a quality dental chew, your Beagle will have no idea that you’ve given him something to help clean his teeth and make his breath smell nice; it can be your secret. We suggest swapping out a ‘regular’ treat for a dental treat at least 1 time per day. L
Nothing can really beat Greenies; These are the #1 vet recommended dental chew, and were the first to receive the Seal of Acceptance for control of plaque and tartar from the Veterinary Oral Health Council. Dogs tend to love how they taste, and they can be found in several varities, including grain-free and weight control.
3. Water supplement – canine mouth wash.
Our Beagles can’t compete with what we’re able to do for oral hygiene; they simply cannot swish and spit. However, canine mouth washes do exist; these are added to water and serve 2 purposes: they can kill bacteria that is in the water bowl and they can protect against the advancement of moderate to severe periodontal issues.
The one that we recommend by Dental Fresh, is flavorless, just a teaspoon is added per 1 cup and it has rave reviews by hundreds of dog owners, most of them happily shocked by how well this rids a dog of bad breath.
