What's the Oral Health test and how does it work?
The Oral Health test analyzes the bacteria in your dog’s mouth to assess their oral health. Poor oral health can cause bad breath, gum disease, tooth loss, and other health issues. When the gut microbiome contains too many harmful bacteria, the smelly gas those bacteria produce gets absorbed into the bloodstream and is eventually exhaled as stinky dog breath. That’s one reason conditions related to imbalances in the gut microbiome can cause extra stinky dog breath.
This test allows you to compare your dog’s oral bacterial community before and after an oral health intervention, such as a dental cleaning.
