DIY Dog Breath Mints Recipe (2)

Who doesn’t love dog kisses? Although we’re always eager to receive some affection from our dog, bad breath can cause us to hesitate a bit. Those moments of hesitation mean we’re not pampering our pets as we should! Dogs can get bad breath from plaque build-up caused by infrequent brushing, insufficient water intake, or just from the foods they eat. Our simple DIY dog breath mints recipe will help get rid of your dog’s bad breath, no matter the reason!

Key Ingredients and Why They Work

There are a few crucial ingredients in this DIY dog breath mints recipe that make them work while keeping them healthy for your dog. First, the oats. Flavored oats are off-limits for dogs, but these old-fashioned rolled oats are fantastic! Look for gluten-free oats to give your pup fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and plant-based protein.

Next up, let’s chat parsley. The green leaves of the parsley plant contain chlorophyll, which works to eliminate bacteria. Getting rid of excess bacteria means better breath for your dog! Parsley also happens to be great for your dog’s digestive system, too.

Then, there’s the mint. Mint makes everyone’s breath better, from humans to our furry friends. It will add a nice, light flavor to the DIY doggie breath mints. The smell is soothing to your dogs, too, and it will flavor their breath after they eat one of the treats.

You should also give our DIY doggie toothpaste a try!

Note: Always check with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet’s diet. Also, please be aware of any allergies your pet may have to specific ingredients. If your dog is allergic to eggs, for example, make sure to omit that ingredient from the recipe! Be sure to avoid ingredients that have caused reactions in your pets in the past. If you are unsure about a specific ingredient found in one of our recipes, introduce the food to your pets in small amounts first.
