You really need to take her to the vet. Sometimes bad breath is a sign for diabetes also. This can be very serious

Well, try brushing his teeth. If he still has bad breath, then take him to the vet. It is possible that he may had an infection in his tooth that is causing the bad breath.

brushing the teeth if possible should help or bring them to the vet to have their teeth cleaned.

Please have your vet check your dog's teeth. My dog developed bad breath and I had him checked out at the vet. Turns out he had a bad tooth that needed to be pulled. His breath improved immediately! I also brush his teeth and give him denta stix.

Truly bad breath, all the time, can mean there is a dental problem. I would take your pooch to the vet and have them check the teeth and gums. If there is a problem it's better to get it fixed before it gets infected. Good luck and please keep us posted!

Have her checked, if it is dental problems it has to be taken care of, it can get infected & damage the heart among other organs & can kill, it could also be a stomach problem, contrary to public belief, dogs do not have bad breath, maybe once in a while if they have a stomach upset, but all the time no good, Rawhide has caused more digestive problems than you will ever hear of, including blockages, greenies also have been known not to digest properly. Good Luck & please don't put it off.

Well dogs always have bad breath it's one of their few flaws, but you can control the level of "stick" by doing certain things. Try brushing your dog's teeth every day or every other day, make sure it's dog toothpaste though. Giving him greenies also helps to control the odor. Don't feed him table scraps because this can cause odors in other places too, wink wink, lol.
