Anyone know what could be acusing this? It started yesterday. Zeplin is only on Purina One Puppy food and it is not fish. His treats are also not fish. he has not eaten any fish- but his breath smells like Tuna. Nothing else smells- his urine is fine- no odor and he appears to be acting normal. I tried to get his mouth open and i think I may have seen a tiny black dot- but could not see for sure- could he have a cavity in a baby tooth already?
Should I take him to the vet or wait and see? I hate to spend a 100 dollars to be told he has smelly breath! I brushed his teeth and the smeel was a littl better but it came back. He saw the vet about a week ago and had blood work then- all was fine. Suggestions????
Puppy breath skunky? Smelling like tuna? What are you talking about?!!!! Puppy breath is one of the heavenly-est smells on the planet, and for sure does not last until they are five months old. You are most definitely NOT smelling puppy breath!
Seriously though, are you brushing Zep's teeth? I try to brush Posh's teeth at least three times a week, and especially if her teeth seem stinky to me, which they usually don't.
Okay- I saw Zeplin dragging his butt just before- I checked him and his anal glands do not seem bad- but they smelled tunaish too! So now I am not sure if it was because he licked his butt and made his butt smell or his tongue smells like his butt! Dear me- this is so much more complicated than an infant!!!
You're on the right track! It could be those loose teeth were holding some decaying food tidbits just prior to falling out or it could be an anal gland issue. I haven't smelled anything before but some people have said it smells fishy when the glands are full. ewww...
