    Horrible breath smells like sour milk...

    Does anybody know what would cause a dog to get horrible breath that smells like really sour milk? This isn't something that she just got...it's been a while now. Horrible smelly sour milk breath! :eek:

    Rotten Teeth. Time for a dental with a vet.

    How old is your dog?

    We rescued her and they estimate 5 years old.

    Definitely in the age group for a dental! It's no big deal and it can make a real difference!

    Good for you for adopting an older dog! I got my rotten mouthed dog as a 6 year old!

    I feed raw, the bones do wonders for their teeth and keep them healthy... What are you feeding? Would get a vet to look at her teeth.

    The last 8 months we've had her, she has been eating quality food. From BB, Nat Balance and currently TOTW Pacific Stream. I haven't given raw bones but they get the dental rawhides that supposedly clean and freshen breath. I even tried giving her liquid chloraphyll and that didn't do it. We looked at her teeth and they seem ok for her age. I mean there are no cavities, red gums, etc. but they're worn down from God knows what from her previous life, which certainly wasn't good. She's had this breath issue, along with skin issues, since we got her and while it has never gone away, it does seem to come and go (the breath). I think the TOTW P/S is doing the trick for her skin but she's just had a hard life out in the dirt and sun all her life. I thought in time she'd shed all that with good nutrition, etc. I may take her for a dental exam just to be certain but I'm not so sure that's it...

    Any other suggestions what would cause a dog to smell sour???

    There are multiple issues that can cause bad breath, but, in your case, I think you'll see a difference with a NAD. If she doesn't have any allergy problems, you can use CET chews by virbac, which are rawhides with chlorhexidine. I definitely noticed a difference in Liberty's teeth using them. She's not big on bones, but looooves the chews.

    Well, I know Venus had HORRIBLE breath when her kidneys was starting to bail. Smelled more like piss though honestly. Has she had a full blood panel done at any point to check the function of her organs? What about digestive or respitory issues. I know those problems can cause bad breath in people.

    I'll look into the chews. Thanks! :)

    I'll have to check with the rescue to see exactly what type of tests were done. She had just undergone major corrective surgery to repair her body from a brutal attack with a machete. I thought they must have checked her out thoroughly but maybe not.

    I think before I take her for a dental...I'll take her in for a full checkup to include a full blood panel, etc.

    If I find out anything specific, I'll let ya'll know.

    Thanks!!! :)

    I know!!! I can't' understand it either. The POS' keeps getting his trial date set back trying to make deals. I believe his pretrial is Wed.

    You can read her story (graphic pics) here: http://www.pitbull-chat.com/showthre...=sooki+machete

    I agree! And the worst part is that nothing that POS said about her is true. She is such a sweet girl and doesn't have an ounce of HA in her. She isn't even food or resource aggressive!!! I think she may just need proper introduction with new animals but not outwardly DA. I can walk her in/out of Petco grooming salon without issue. Honestly, I haven't tested her but prefer to keep a safe distance for her protection. Initially, she came to us thinking she was heartworm + but turns out she wasn't after two additional tests came back neg. Apparently they got her blood work mixed up at the pound. Florida Veterinary Specialist did the surgery so I would hope they did additional blood work rather than relying on what they did at animal control???

    I think I’ll just take her pre-annual and get blood work done now just to know where she’s at.

    She's just a great girl and we're doing everything we can to ensure she enjoys the remainder of her life in peace and with lots of love!!!

    I hope we can get her breath under control because she likes to give kisses now and I can’t refuse her affection. At first, she didn’t know how to accept affection. I swear she got embarrassed when we’d love on her with hugs and kisses—she would get hot flashes even! She would stiffen up and just poor thing… She’s really come a long way now though…she willingly rolls over for belly rubs and loves to be hugged. I’ve gotten very attached to her and I hope she’ll be with us a long time. I hope she doesn’t have anything majorly wrong…that just would be so devastating.

    Right now, I feed her TOTW Pacific Stream, twice a day, with a tsp of pumpkin and a heaping tlbs of plain Greek yogurt with each meal. Her skin and coat had really improved and you can no longer see her scar on her neck. The only telltale sign of the incident is her clipped ear which in the end is so cute!!!

    I know it is sad but emotionally and physically she has come so far. She seems to know and feel that she's part of the family now. For months she made a point to stay out of the way. Make herself small to go unnoticed but now she has come out of her shell and she just hangs out and follows me all over the house. She is a little brick house I'll tell you! She has so many muscles from head to toe but they also bred her a LOT so her belly is a bit out of shape and my feeding her well hasn't helped! But she really is doing well and smiles a lot with her big pitty smile! :)
