Dogs with bad breath?  The solution comes from bacteria

Bad breath in dogs, a solution from bacteria according to two researchers from the University of Arizona.

Improper oral hygiene and nutrition can contribute to the onset ofbad breath, even in dogs. A phenomenon that often reduces the pleasure given by the company of your pet. A problem to which the researchers of the University of Arizona they ensure that they have found a definitive solution, through the use of some battery completely harmless.

According to US scholars, the strain of bacteria identified would eliminate the problem ofbad breath in dogs. Contrary to what happens with toothpastes and snacks, the researchers continue, who in most cases just hide the problem behind other smells.

Although the invention of the researchers at the University of Arizona is still in development, the same scholars claim that the duration of effect may be between 8 and 12 hours. Presenting this new solution are Prof. Eric Lyons and the research co-author, Prof. David Baltrus. As Lyons stated:

The applications for this invention are many. Our plan is that they can eventually find space inside dog snacks and biscuits, pet food and oral care products.

Bacteria against bad breath in dogs

The two researchers explained that to arrive at this solution, hundreds of bacteria present in the dogs’ mouth were analyzed. Of these, scholars have selected twenty types, identified as harmless and easily modifiable.

By modifying these bacteria, gods were obtained microorganisms for which the variations were more effective. Further steps will be required before arriving at the definition of a marketable product, but Prof. Lyons said he is already looking beyond:

Hopefully, future tests will help the product evolve from an additive that simply treats bad breath in dogs to one that helps prevent tooth loss and other oral diseases.
