I spent a year (multiple vets, and countless dollars) trying to figure out how to solve my 3yo golden's HORRIBLE ROTTEN breath!

After ruling out: teeth, gums, diet, kidneys, liver, digestive, foreign bodies, and ear infection what else could it be? I was going CRAZY!

The Culprit?.....Lip Folds.

Apparently common in wrinkly-faced dogs, her bottom lip has a fold on the inside which resulted in a festering bacterial breeding ground complete with open sores and rotting flesh. Yum

The Solution?....

2 weeks of antibiotics, and wiping out the fold with antibacterial wipes. Once a day to start and then as just routine hygiene. Done and Done.

I thought this was very interesting and maybe it will help someone else out in their quest for relief from gross rotten breath....:D
