You can’t get enough of your furry bestie but woofda, pup’s breath has seen fresher days! Luckily we’ve got five recipes to cure those bad breath blues with inexpensive and natural ingredients. Whip up one of these five tasty homemade dog toothpaste recipes so you can snuggle up closer with your couch bud.
These household items clean and freshen stinky moufs for just pennies! In addition to being a natural anti-bacterial product, baking soda’s abrasiveness helps scrub away plaque and tartar. The lauric acid in coconut oil helps kill bacteria (plus it’s heckin’ tasty and shines pup coats). Simply combine and store in an airtight jar or container. This toothpaste can be stored at room temperature. When it’s time for brushies, just about a pea-sized amount will do the trick!
While we won’t be looking for a meat-flavored breath mint for ourselves anytime soon, this flavor combo makes perfect sense to our pups. Place all ingredients in your blender or food processor and blitz until well-combined. Store this one in the fridge.
Add a little bit of spice! Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and mix until combined. Store in an airtight container at room temp. The cinnamon’s antibacterial powers will improve your pup’s breath, and many of our furry friends ruv its cozy flavor.
This one’s for you, canine super foodies. Combine all ingredients in an airtight container and stir to combine. Turmeric whitens and parsley deodorizes while kelp promotes plaque removal. Oh, and tell your health nut these ingredients’ll provide her with antioxidants and minerals, too.
Convince your dog this brushing thing isn’t so annoying, after all. Stir to combine and store in an airtight jar at room temp. As always, make abso-barking-lutely sure that there is not xylitol in your peanut butter (it’s toxic).
