Let's talk dogs
Charli would be very embarrassed if she knew I was sharing this with you, but shh.... sometimes she has a problem with BAD BREATH. We have tried a multitude of things and nothing has seemed to work for any length of time. I brush her teeth regularly even though she hates it and have tried just about every brand of tooth paste on the market. It isn't so much that she hates the brushing, it's that she doesn't like the tooth paste. She refuses any type of dental products out there from chew bones to treats. The vet says her teeth are in good condition. She does like people bones but I'm reluctant to give her those. Charli is very finicky about her dog food and is not much of a water drinker at all. Really, we have never had a dog before as fussy as she is.
Well, one day I was telling my cousin Suzy how frustrated I am at times with Charli and she suggested adding a little mint to her water. My first reaction was Charli would never go for anything like that but the more I thought about it I decided to give it a try. First I called my vet just to make sure mint was not toxic to dogs. Then, in addition to the ice and fresh water I give her twice a day, I added a few sprigs of mint. CHARLI LIKES IT! She likes mint flavored water and it has done wonders for her breath. She is even drinking more water! I have finally found something that works. Thank you so much Suzie!
I hope all of you have a wonderful day!
With warmest regards, Carol
