Dear friend,

Here is the second question of the ......

3 Great Questions About Dog Food

“We feed a grocery-store canned food to our dog. He has bad breath all the time. Do you think it's the food?”

It could be the food, but it could also be dental tartar and gum disease caused by the exclusively soft food diet. Because he doesn't eat any type of dry food, your dog is not getting any rough form of abrasion on his teeth.

The soft food may be accumulating on his teeth and the decaying food particles causing the bad odor. Try mixing a good quality dry food with just a small amount of the canned food and see if he'll eat it just as well. If so, he will be getting good nutrition and the abrasive action of crunching on dry dog food will help the bad-breath problem.

Lets stay tuned to the third question at my next post.
