Mommy pushed me away with this look of HORROR on her face. What? I asked. Do I have something on my CUTE lil' pug nose? Or maybe a little itty bitty EYE BOOGER that needs removing?
NO! She said with a note of utter disgust. Your BREATH smells something AWFUL! Have you been eating disgusting things?
Well, for the life of me I couldn't figure out what she MEANT by DISGUSTING things. After all, to a PUG almost anything is eatable, disgusting or not.
Well, Mommy huffed! I am going to do something about this horrid breath of yours!
Help was on its way via a most unusual avenue - CHEWY.COM included a rather unusual choice with their OCTOBER review items. Tropiclean water additive.

It removes plaque and tartar, eliminates harmful
bacteria in the mouth, and gives your pet pal 12 hours of breath so fresh you won't mind the face licks.

According to the information found on, TROPICLEAN is
  • Simple to use 
  • Reduces plaque and tartar 
  • Reduces risk of periodontal disease 
  • No brushing required 
  • All-natural formula with aloe and green tea
Mommy rubbed HER CHIN and smiled - this is in the right direction, she said. Then she checked out the INGREDIENTS (as we ALL learned, she is a stickler for this)

Purified water, Citric Acid, Cytlpyridinium, Chlorophylin, Glycerine, Potassium Sorbate, Green Tea Extract.

Nothing UNTOWARD there. . . . Okay, she said, we will try it. AND WE DID.

OMP!! This stuff is the BOMB! It makes our water taste so good that we have been doubling up on our daily REFRESHMENT! And all Mommy has to do is put a few capfuls into our water bowl (it depends on how LARGE your bowl is, of course. Ours is GIGANTIC because there are THREE of us sipping from it ALL DAY).

But, the proof is NOT in us drinking from the fountain. No, no, no. While it IS IMPORTANT that we like the stuff enough to ingest it, the REAL TEST is in the result - out BREATHs. Well, I cannot vouch for Molly or Sunshine because I DO NOT KISS them overmuch. But I do KISS my MOMMYS and you know what?
They - STOPPED - making - that- HORROR- face. In fact, Mommy #2 even told me I had sweet breffs (she talks baby talk to me sometimes)!!! She didn't even say THAT to me when I was a sweet lil one with PUPPY breath!

This product is a WIN WIN in my book. If you wanna be kissable - and granted, there are some who don't - then try TROPICLEAN. It works.

*Note: This is not a substitute for regular dental care. As we all know, healthy teeth and gums equal a healthy pet.

DISCLAIMER - we were not paid for this review. We were given ONE bottle of Tropiclean from in exchange for our honest opinion. This is our HONEST opinion.

Momma needs regular kisses from me no matter HOW she thinks my breath smells. I insist on it! Wait, Momma, what are you muttering about this turning up in my stocking this Christmas?

Oh the nerve. We told mom she needed Listerine

I'd give a lick to that face any day, Noodles! :)

Glad to hear the breath freshener is doing the trick. My dad brushes my teeth (or attempts to) each night before bed. I go along because I love the taste of doggy toothpaste. I think that helps keep my breath from getting too bad (and of course, as you mentioned, regular dental checkups are key - although I HATE GOING TO THEM).
