Did you know that, beyond the age of three, the majority of pets—up to 85%—have some kind of dental disease? If you neglected to wash your teeth for three years, you would too.
After a meal, your pet's teeth start to build sticky plaque, which quickly hardens into cement-like tartar. Bacteria-filled plaque and tartar cause gingivitis and other illnesses.
The inability to remove waste materials from the circulation causes pets with renal disease to suffer. These waste products accumulate and can give your dog's breath an ammonia-like stench.
Also, some claim that pets with renal disease have a metallic stench coming from their mouths. You'll probably notice an increase in thirst and urine if your dog's kidney function is impaired.
Moreover, pets with advanced diabetes may have a distinct breath odour. Your dog's body won't be able to utilise the nutrients in the food she consumes if she is either not creating enough insulin or not utilising it correctly.
No matter how much she eats, if she doesn't get enough nourishment, her body will start to break down itself to get the nutrients it needs, which produces ketones.

Close skin contact causes a warm, wet environment ideal for an overgrowth of surface germs like bacteria and yeast, which results in this stinking skin condition.
These microorganisms release toxins that irritate and inflame the skin, destroying its protective layer and opening the door for infection.
Ear infections in pets are frequently brought on by allergies. Certain dogs, like hounds with long, floppy ears that absorb moisture, may naturally be more prone to getting ear infections.
Dogs that routinely swim without following a good after-swim ear-drying practise are also more prone to get recurrent ear infections.
Some dogs have flatulence that is potent enough to empty a room, generally after consuming something exceptionally repulsive, such mouldy garbage or a dead animal.
If your dog ate something she shouldn't have, she may also have vomiting and diarrhoea along with these extreme bouts of flatulence.
