Why does my pet’s mouth smell like this?

As a general practice veterinarian, I get asked this question almost every day. It has been my experience that dental and oral diseases are way under-diagnosed and too often overlooked by veterinary professionals – possibly because dental hygiene can be a sensitive topic that we don’t want to open.
