Hi, my lil Poppy is 6 months old now, and I swear her breath smells worse everyday! She lost her tiny front teeth in October, and today she lost a canine, and at the moment, I am unable to brush her back teeth, as they are so loose, and bleed. Some are so loose they are almost sideways! Is this the reason her breath smells so bad?

Teething can definitely cause bad breath. If using the brush hurts her, you can just use your finger or a piece of gauze to wipe her teeth off. That will at least keep her used to having her teeth brushed.

Thank you. I have still been doing her front teeth, but I'm avoiding the back ones as they are too loose.

What about a frozen wash cloth? My chihuahuas never had a teething problem, but my dobe did. I would wet a Terry cloth and freeze it. That might help with cleaning the back teeth too.
