Dogs are most likely to get gum disease or rotten teeth.Why is this? Well, it is so much harder to really watch what dogs eat. You dog could have just eaten roadkill off the road, and he is licking your face. Rabbits and other small animals are easier. They are vegetarians, so even if they did eat something unknown it would be a carrot or something else. Since they are smaller, you watch out for them anyway, because you are more worried they could be hurt. But dogs, well, let's just say they are pretty unpredictable when it comes to food. Once a dog decided that the carpet would taste delicious, and he tore up and ate the rug!! So if you cannot watch what your dog consumes, (although you always should because it could be poison), set up a doggy camera and also train him not to eat those kinds of things! Dentastix(dog chews) are good for this, but still, dogs really have that bad breath smell. YUK! Coconut oil(see "Natural Remedies for Dog Arthritis" post) works great and it has a nice smell!
