Remember peppermint candy canes and other hard candies are a big holiday no-no for pets – they can easily choke on all hard candy.
If your pet does have bad breath all the time, this can indicate dental disease. It’s important to take your dog for regular exams and professional teeth cleanings. Also, bad breath can be related to more serious medical conditions such as a liver or kidney disease.
