Horse Bad Breath

Horse Bad Breath

Bad breath can happen in any animal, but most people don’t necessarily consider horses when they think about it since horses aren’t living in the same house with their people. The good news is that remedies are available for halitosis, even among the equine population.  Horse tartar removal products can help solve the problem.

Much like in humans and other animals, horse bad breath is usually caused by bacteria. While regular care of a horse’s teeth is necessary as a matter of course, oral health diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis that are a result of lack of dental treatment. Obviously regular dental treatment is a necessity to get to the underlying cause. For instance, hay and other bits can get stuck in a horse’s teeth, causing rot and gingival irritation, so this should be dealt with directly.

This alone works wonders in decreasing the bacteria levels in a horse’s mouth, and is an effective option for horse owners.
