Happy dog owner getting puppy dog kisses … it always looks so picture-perfect on TV and in Valentine cards.
But the reality is … most pet owners steer clear of doggy kisses for one simple reason: dog bad breath.
Contrary to popular belief, a dog’s breath shouldn’t smell at all. If it does, it’s a sign of gum disease, which can progressively get worse as plaque and tartar accumulate along the dog’s gum line, causing inflammation, infection, tooth loss and even harm to their vital organs.
Here’s the good news: in addition to regular check-ups at the vet, you can EASILY adopt an at-home teeth cleaning routine for your dog to give him fresh breath and a best-on-the-block kind of smile. And, if you catch gum disease early enough, you can completely reverse it.
One solution does not fit all when it comes to dog dental care. That’s why Oxyfresh has 3 unique solutions to stop bad dog breath. Keep reading and we’ll tell you all about them so you can find what’s right for you.
But First, Why Oxyfresh for Dog Bad Breath?
The Oxyfresh difference is Oxygene®. Many pet dental products contain alcohol, additives, mints or clove oils – ingredients that only mask bad breath temporarily and can sting dogs’ delicate gum tissues.
Oxygene® is a gamechanger because it’s a gentle, 100% non-toxic ingredient that eliminates bad breath on a molecular level rather than covering it up artificially. It’s also the first line of defense against gum disease, which can take years off a pet’s life.
By fighting bacteria, Oxygene® effectively cleans the teeth and gums each day, reducing plaque and tartar buildup. You’ll find this exclusive ingredient in all of our pet products.
3 Oxyfresh Products for Healthy Smiles & Fresh Dog Breath
#1. Oxyfresh Pet Dental Gel Toothpaste
To brush or not to brush, that is the question.
The answer is: with Oxyfresh Pet Dental Gel Toothpaste, you can go either way.
Brushing is still the best way to remove plaque buildup from a dog’s teeth and gums, but if you try it and it doesn’t go well, you can also just apply this gel straight to the gums with a finger brush, your bare finger or a piece of gauze. You can also apply a drop to the tongue for instant fresh breath support.
Free of artificial flavor additives and other junk, Oxyfresh Pet Dental Gel Toothpaste is tasteless and odorless, so your pet won’t try to chew up the toothbrush (or your finger). It’s formulated with odor-fighting Oxygene® to fight plaque and bad breath plus aloe to pamper your pooch’s gums.

“It’s everything advertised. Healthier gums, tartar buildup disappearing, breath so much better nearly immediately. Gonna continue as part of their dental hygiene.”– Jonny J.
#2. Oxyfresh Pet Dental Water Additive
This award-winning, vet-recommended water additive is the perfect complement to toothbrushing, especially if you can’t brush your pet’s teeth every day. (Brushing should be done at least 3x a week in order for the dog’s teeth and gums to benefit.)
The Oxygene® and zinc in this formula will freshen your dog’s breath while helping to fight plaque buildup. Just add to the water bowl and that’s it. Your pet won’t even know it’s there. Giving your dog Oxyfresh Pet Dental Water Additive is one of the easiest way to support daily pet dental health without a lot of time or effort.
