I definitely agree that if your pet has really bad breath, it could be a sign of something more serious. Itís definitely important to take your pet to the vet. They may have your dog have a thorough dental cleaning which requires anesthesia. The dog could have periodontal disease, itís the number one disease in dogs and cats. The thorough cleaning at the vetís would be a good start. I know some groomers also do non-anesthetic dental cleanings, but they arenít as thorough.
The vet will probably suggest toothpaste and regular manual brushings after the initial cleaning. You can also try an oral solution and put it directly on your petís gums. If your dog is too squeamish, there is an oral solution to help breath that you put in his or her water. You can read more about it here: http://www.therabreath.com/art_dogs.asp
