Probiotics for Breath?

My 6 month-old cockapoo has terrible breath. He has been losing a lot of his puppy teeth, which IO was told could be a contributor. He also has a beard that is always drippy from water, but really I can't even stand his kisses. No signs of infection when I look in his mouth, just generally bad doggie breath.

I have heard that probiotics can help with this. Will plain yogurt suffice if he tolerates it? How much is recommended daily? He weighs 18 pounds. I found several probiotic supplements I can feed as a treat but they are really expensive, compared to yogurt and I wonder if they are even still active after processing.

Thoughts?


Thanks!

You can put a small amount of fresh chopped parsley in the food, this will help. My dogs get kefer or yogurt daily but it does not help with bad breath.

He eats Canidae Pure which is a highly rated kibble. Only occasional grain-free treats during training.
