I agree, puppy breath has alwasy been sought after in my group! lol - sour milk makes me gag too, one of my horrors. Your puppy could have something wrong in his tummy. Ask your vet.

Good luck!

Hey vallaug,

For your puppy to have stinky breath can be normal but there are some various reasons to cause this.

1.) Their diet
Think about what you are feeding them...are you bottle feeding or is it food? You need to make sure he's eating what you are giving him and that he's nourished.

2.) Brush their teeth
Maybe you just need to practice a little dental hygiene. I know I don't think about brushing my dog's teeth, but it is something you need to consider. Use toothpaste made for dogs or that it is okay to swallow. They don't like our fingers in their mouths, but they will feel better and have better smelling breath.

Hopefully these things help. Feel free to send me a message and let me know if either of these things work.
