Do the sprays for a dog’s bad breath work and which kind is best

Do the sprays for a dog’s bad breath work and which kind is best?

As a general rule, these sprays, when used alone, do not provide a long term solution. Halitosis, or bad breath, in dogs is generally the result of a build-up of dental tartar on the teeth. As the amount of tartar increases, the gums become inflamed, red and sore. The problem becomes a persistent infection of the mouth which leads to the foul breath. If the root of the bad breath - this tartar along with infected gums - is not addressed by regular brushing or dental cleanings by your veterinarian, no amount of spray is going to freshen the breath.
There are some sprays that claim to dissolve the tartar, but I am not aware of conclusive proof that this is true. Young dogs, once they have lost all their baby teeth, generally do not have bad breath, unless they enjoy eating nasty things found in the yard or cow pasture near their home. Their teeth are pearly white and they have no significant tartar to speak of. Needless to say, during this period of time, the odor of a dog’s breath is at its best.

Sniff your dog’s breath. Not a field of lilies? That’s okay—normal doggie-breath isn’t particularly fresh-smelling. However, if his breath is especially offensive and is accompanied by a loss of appetite, vomiting or excessive drinking or urinating, it’s a good idea to take your pooch to the vet.

KissAble Toothpaste - $7.00

You probably didn’t know this but you can't just use YOUR toothpaste for your dog (as convenient as that may be). Human toothpaste contains soap. That's what makes it foam. But soap shouldn't be ingested... and smart as your dog may be, you're not going to teach him to spit! The vanilla flavored toothpaste is All Natural and is great for dogs and their people! It contains Tea tree oil, which helps fight plaque and is naturally sweetened with Stevia.

KissAble Dental Wipes - $12.99

Herbal-infused dental wipes are great for dogs that won’t let you brush with a toothbrush. They promote excellent oral hygiene while refreshing your dog’s breath. These textured wipes contain baking soda which provides gentle abrasion to help remove unwanted build up. They also combine the gentleness of aloe with the antioxidant power of pomegranate.
Aloe works like a toothpaste to eliminate disease causing bacteria in the mouth and the latest research on pomegranate shows that it is beneficial in reducing dental plaque accumulation and gum disease. The Wipes Also contain grape seed extract, rosemary, lavender and parsley, which help to promote good oral hygiene.

"English Bulldog" Matryoshka

"English Bulldog" Matryoshka

This "English Bulldog Matryoshka" is handcrafted in the heart of Russia. It was first handturned from linden wood and then handpainted by a professional nesting doll artist who specializes in animals painting. It is a typical nesting doll, and each smaller piece of the set fits into the next larger one. Each doll is coated with 3-5 layers of crystal clear lacquer, and the tallest one is signed by artist. Would make a wonderful gift to any kid, especially a growing one as it may be used as both a toy and a teaching tool.

The tradition of painting pets, birds and poultry on nesting dolls is, actually, as old as the nesting doll itself. The first Russian nesting doll turned by Vassily Zviozdochkin and painted by Sergey Maliutin contained 8 pieces: a girl with a black rooster was followed by a boy and then by a girl again and so on. All figurines were different from each other, the last one was a figurine of a baby wrapped in diaper. Ever since then roosters and other poultry have been often pictured on matryoshka dolls. It is important to emphasize that poultry has always been treated a "pets" by both village and town children. Chicks and ducklings are often pictured in the hands of children being in the same nesting doll set with children holding kittens and puppies. The matryoshka doll before you is an excellent example of a "pets nesting doll". It will make a wonderful gift to any kid, especially a growing one as it may be used as both a toy and a teaching tool.
