Get ready to #SmoochUrPooch

Matthew, the #bigyellowdog loves to give all of us big, giant, wet, sloppy kisses. The kids don't seem to mind, and for the most part, neither do I. And I know that many of my dog loving friends also love to share smooches with their furry four legged friends.

Except for one thing.

Dog Breath.

Matthew does not have any poor dental hygiene or any indication of dental disease. However, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of periodontal disease by age three. Matthew is almost 3, but his Vet is always telling me Matthew has great looking teeth and gums.

So doggy breath? What gives? Why does he have it, and how can I fix it?

My husband's hypothesis...get ready for it, it's a gross one.

Toilet water.

Yup. Toilet water. The #TampaTrio are not good with flushing their toilet. On more than one occasion I hear Matthew drinking out of the toilet, only to go in and discover that it's a toilet bowl filled with trio pee. DISGUSTING. I'm working with them on either remembering to flush, or at least put the lid back down, but for so long we've ingrained the "if it's yellow let it mellow" train of thought for water conservation that it's apparently a hard habit to break.

Over the course of the next few weeks I'm going to be talking with you about the great products available through Tropiclean.


Tropiclean are wholesome products made to be non-invasive and an easy way to keep your dog’s teeth clean at home between cleanings with the Vet. 

We’ll be trying out products like TropiClean Water AdditiveTropiClean Dental Chews, and the Clean Teeth and Gums Gel. “We strive to use high quality ingredients produced by nature and sourced in the United States,” says TropiClean. We’ll be learning more about those natural ingredients and sharing what we learn in the coming weeks.

You can learn more about TropiClean on their website on Facebook and Twitter.

And I'm super hopeful that this can help Matthew with his toilet doggy breath!

Do you have a dental routine for your pet?

  • I'm interested to see what you think of these products. I have three dogs and they definitely have "doggy breath" going on!
  • I don't have a dog but I have several friends that do! I'll pass this on!
  • I don't have a dental routine for our puppy. We do give him "dental" chews and they seem to help, the vet has said his mouth looks good.
  • I have no dental routine with my dog and you can totally tell it. He has some stanky breath!! Although I think it is a chihuahua thing. I met another chihuahua whose name is Mr. Stinky for that reason.
  • Glad to hear that Matthew has such healthy teeth! Now is the time to start a dental routine that will ensure it stays that way for years to come.
  • Sadly, no. But we have cats and they are mostly outdoors. I don't think they'd let us clean their teeth if we tried! Smile
