Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and specialist and will do my best to assist you today!If there is a bad smell from the mouth, an infection is often present.The best option here is to brush your dog's teeth - removing the plaque and tartar where the bacteria hide on the teeth and the gums.Human toothpaste should not be used.It is inexpensive, and the best option would be an enzymatic dog toothpaste,This is at your local petstore or onlineHere is a safe oral rinse to consider as well - LINK HEREGood LuckI hope this helps!
