Wamiz tip: Store these tasty dog treats in your freezer and whip one out before your guests arrive! That way if your dog starts kissing anyone, you’re sure his/her breath is smelling fresh!

Nutritionist’s tip: These treats can’t replace a good tooth-brushing session. While they’ll leave your dog’s breath smelling fresh, they won’t help to reduce plaque or tartar. This fresh-breath dog treat recipe is a quick solution to a bad breath problem, but you should still be brushing your dog’s teeth as often as possible to prevent any dental diseases. 

Suitable for cats: No
