Frozen mint + yogurt dog treats are your go-to breath freshener when your pup gets into something really gross! Pop out a few of these mint treats from the freezer and you’ll feel refreshed just seeing your pup licking away at them. I’m not one to really care about germs but I do get wary after seeing what my dog’s face gets into sometimes.
The grossest thing I’ve ever had to pull out of Luna’s mouth was a soggy used napkin. It’s just scary when you don’t know what the heck you’re touching! I’ve also had to pry her teeth off of chicken bones, used dental floss, and remnants of dead animals. Oh and I’ll never forget when she came running up to me and it looked like her face was full of cotton candy. Nope! It was a huge fluff ball from a husky that just got groomed.

Did You Know?
Greek yogurt is the best option for yogurt you can give your dog as long as they’re not lactose intolerant. It contains a higher level of probiotics and helps fight yeast infections for ear and skin infections. Stick with unflavored as the flavored ones will have more sugar. Sweeten naturally with fresh fruits!
Mint as a small dose can soothe your dog’s tummy aches. It can also help freshen breath while providing rich quantities of Vitamin A + C, good for bones, skin, and vision.
Honey is best known for aiding dogs with allergy symptoms. Just like humans, it can help soothe a sore throat if your dog has kennel cough and also soothe an irritated stomach. However, due to it’s naturally high sugar content, feed in small doses.
