Have there been any dietary changes? New food? new treats? human food?Any vomiting or diarrhea?
He can take a 1/4 dose of gas-x every 8 hours to help with the flatulence. It would likely be a good idea to use a bland diet for a few days to calm his stomach and see if this helps both with the breath and with the gas. If it does not or it worsens, having him examined would be wise. In some cases bad breath can indicate organ damage and we would want to have that addressed medically sooner rather than later.Bland diet directions: To make this, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. If your companion requires a more palatable food, try adding in pureed baby food in chicken, turkey and similar flavors. Avoid those that contain onion or garlic in the ingredient panel.
