Bad Breath Remedies

Does your dog or cat have bad breath? We have some of the best solutions available.

Your pet’s health is in your hands

Without proper preventive care, dogs may suffer many of the same health conditions we do, including dental problems such as bad breath, plaque and tartar buildup and gum disease. All of these can lead to more serious health problems if not addressed and corrected.

Plaque buildup

Allowing plaque to build up on your pet’s teeth is the first stop on the road to gum disease. The most noticeable sign of plaque buildup is bad breath. If you notice that your pet’s breath is less than fresh, it’s time to visit Riverside Grooming or your vet to have your pet’s teeth cleaned, followed by regular daily home care with PlaqClnz® Gel.

Tartar buildup

If plaque buildup is left untreated, it hardens and becomes tartar-hard, yellow deposits along the gum line. Many dogs and cat experience significant tartar buildup as early as age two. Over time, the buildup creates “pockets” where the gum is forced away from the teeth, which can lead to gum disease.

Keeping your pet’s teeth and gums healthy is an important part of caring for their overall health and can help add quality years to your pet’s life.

It’s up to YOU to be sure your pet is getting the care he needs to stay a healthy, happy member of your family for many years to come.

Proper care includes routine veterinary checkups and vaccinations, visits to the groomer and daily home care.

It takes just a few minutes to check and evaluate your pet’s oral health.
Here is what to look for.

Healthy mouth

Your pet’s teeth and gums are healthy if you notice:

  • Clean, white teeth
  • Breath with a mild aroma
  • Smooth, coral pink gum tissue
  • Gum tissue that appears firm, even and fully encircles the teeth

Benefits of a healthy mouth:

  • Helps pet retain teeth
  • Allows pet to chew without discomfort
  • Safeguards pet from additional health risks



The PlaqClnz® procedure is quick, easy and effective. The spray and gel are taste-free, so even finicky pets accept them easily.

We recommend you continue daily treatment at home with PlaqClnz® Gel to continue the oral cleansing process and maintain your pet’s health.
