Doggie Fresh Breath Blend Formula

Doggie Fresh Breath Blend Formula

Oh, that awful dog breath! If your canine pal has breath that could stop a rhino at forty paces, first be sure that there is not a dental issue going on, and that she is generally healthy. If she checks out okay, then it’s just a case of canine halitosis–and here is some great all-natural help for it. Many dogs love the taste of this simple formula!

Get the formula here:


1/2 ounce base oil (the author recommends hazelnut or sweet almond oil)
6 drops essential oil of Cardamom
4 drops essential oil of Coriander Seed
6 drops essential oil of Peppermint

Mix ingredients well and place blend in a glass bottle with a dropper top. Dispense 1 to 3 drops inside the dog’s mouth.

Our dogs are given cow hooves and they are the best things for cleaning their teeth. This does sound like a wonderful recipe though thanks! Our old (14 years) dog has quite bad dogbreath sometimes LOL!

Passing this article on to my husband & son who insist that 2 large Rottweilers are family members. Our dogs don't have this problem too much;but once in awhile they do. We keep pet store commercial breath tablets for this; but I think the price of these are way out-of-line. Will check into this & see if it's any cheaper. Thanks for the info!
