Bad Breath, Halitosis in (Papillon) Puppies

If you purchased a puppy at age 8-12 weeks, and all of a sudden it starts to develop Bad Breath (Halitosis), don't be terribly alarmed as it is quite common.
Puppies can develop a fowl smelling breath as they teeth, and most likely it will go away after the full set of adult teeth are grown in (5-7 months).
You might have the vet check your puppy for impacted teeth,or any other underlying issues, but otherwise, you just have to put up with the odor for a little while.

Bad breath, medically called halitosis, can result from poor dental health habits and may be a sign of other health problems. Bad breath can also be made worse by the types of foods you eat and other unhealthy lifestyle habits. Many other diseases and illnesses may cause bad breath. Here are some to be aware of: respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis, chronic sinus infections, postnasal drip, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, and liver or kidney problems. So be careful. Thanks.
