Pixie has terrible breath. I've tried adding Pet Dental liquid to her water bowl, tried brushing her teeth, have given her greenies, and still reeks! I can't understand it, and I'm wondering if that's just something I'll have to deal with for the rest of her life​
:confused:

My Sheltie has just had dental treatment and i was talking to the receptionist,her dog is 2 and has terrible breath,teeth are all fine,changed food ,vets looked at her can't find anything at all.If you have tried a different diet,teeth are ok.and had her seen by the vet.Maybe it's something you will have to live with,she does as nothing else can be done

Puppies typically have a "skunky" breath odor, and that is normal.

Having said that... with a 5 month old puppy, I'd be looking for retained baby teeth. They can crowd the adult teeth coming in and if they aren't deeply rooted, they can decay - causing a terrible odor. If she has retained baby teeth (very common in Chi's), your vet will have to pull them if they don't come out on their own.
