Bad Breath (Halitosis)
Bad breath, is a common problem reported by dog owners. The most common cause is a
dental problem. Bacteria, saliva and food particles can form plaque, which causes bad
breath. This can further develop into gingivitis, or worse, periodontal disease, which
will make the breath even more unpleasant.
In addition to dental problems, other causes can be, Kidney disease , Infections around
the mouth, some sinus infections, eating stool or spoiled garbage and other such as
tonsillitis, cancer, trauma, and some autoimmune diseases.
If your Westie has bad breath, take him along to a vet for a check up. make sure there
is not a build up of plaque on his teeth, keep them clean by providing products for him to
chew. If this is not working buy some dog tooth paste and clean them yourself.
