How to stop a dog’s bad breath, commonly known as Dog Breath!
It is important to us that you care for your dog’s mouth and teeth. You brush your teeth systematically, every day, a trained habit, and your dog should have to opportunity to do that too.
Consider puppies, some say puppies are too young to get dog breath, but have you considered the fact that their desire to chew helps clean their teeth!
How can I help prevent canine dental disease?
Build in an antler treat can seriously help remove plaque. There has been a 23% increase in dental disease, particularly in older dogs. Dogs over the age of 12 years old .
Dog Breath is natural in some dogs. Once you have asked Did my dog just eat something disgusting and smelly? Horse poo will do it every time. Labradors are well known for this one!
Are his / her gums looking red or inflamed, in which case a costly trip to the vet should be in order.
What can I do to prevent tooth troubles?
Keeping the mouth healthy with chewing action is what dogs were designed to do. This stimulates healthy saliva to help keep those canines sparkly.
As dog owners, we are becoming more discerning in what we choose to feed all of our pets. Do you know all of the ingredients in the “get teeth clean quick” dog treats like you do in your food? Probably not! In an effort to lead a healthier lifestyle we should apply the same scrutiny to our dog treats.
Trying to juggle getting the best products, and best value for money, and not understanding what all of those E numbers really are can be a real struggle. Checking the calories and feeding guidelines for your dog, cat or horse feed can seem overwhelming. Staglers have no hidden calories! People often stick to what they know, because it is easier. I am seeing this over and over in purchasing decisions in our daily lives too.
At Staglers we believe the food we give our pets should fall into “Keeping it Natural”
Cons of other dog treats
The unhealthy fat content is usually high resulting in high calorie content that many sedentary dogs do not need and bad breath
Plastic chews can lead to plastic smell , nasty
Chemicals and colours in treats leave a residue and will also negate the benefits of any expensive healthy feed.
Lets not forget the human processed food you, or family members, may be guilty of sneaking under the table. Even if given of love, STOP, dogs are not designed to eat our processed, palm oil, food.
Rawhide does get stuck
There are so many products on the market. The ingredients are the first clue. Some of the ingredients in dog chews are awful. When was the last time you picked up and read a box of treats. Did you read the calories per chew as well?

“Thank you so much for introducing me to Staglers. My dog had bad breath and a dull coat. Since giving deer antler to her for supervised sessions I can see the improvement and the bad breath is a thing of the past. My vet is very happy with the hygiene in her mouth” Annie
