Homemade Fresh Breath Dog Treats


Are you ever overwhelmed by the odor coming from your pooch’s mouth? Don’t be embarrassed to say yes … bad breath in dogs is very common. While I definitely recommend brushing your dog’s teeth to tackle the root of the problem (plaque, tartar, and bacteria), you can also toss your pup a breath mint! Not just any breath mint, of course. Today, I made these gluten-free fresh breath dog treats and they will definitely do the trick.

Your precious pooch doesn’t have to have stinky breath to enjoy these homemade biscuits, though. They are simply made from gluten-free flours, protein-packed eggs, odor-canceling herbs, and the superfood coconut oil. All of these ingredients are extremely healthy for your pooch (especially the coconut oil, which I dedicated an entire blog post to)!

Aside from the health and breath benefits, my dogs seem to love the flavor. I hope your little ones gobble them down as happily as mine did!

I also hope you have as much fun making these as I did. If you haven’t ordered one of a dog bone cookie cutter yet, then you’re missing out. I get such a kick out of making pretty treats! 

*Please Note: If you find your dog is having continuous offensive bad breath, it’s a good idea to get him checked out by your vet. Bad breath in dogs is often a sign of a dental or medical issue.
