Bad Breath

  • definition:
    Foul odour from your cat or dogs mouth.

  • etiology:
    Caused by either tooth decay or undigested food in the stomach.

  • signs and symptoms:
    Tooth decay: Build up of tartar on the teeth and gums causing a foul smell to emanate from the mouth. DigestaVite does not clean decaying teeth, we recommend simply feeding bones to naturally clean off decay.
    Digestive Odour: Usually caused by processed and canned pet foods. Food remains in the stomach for longer than it should due to the indigestibility of commercial food. This creates a foul odour which passes back up the oesophagus and through the mouth. This gives the impression that the breath is smelly, in actual fact it is the stomach.
