Metallic Breath Smell In Dogs

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Why does my puppy have metallic smelling breath?
    I recently got a miniature Australian shepherd puppy who's about 12 weeks old. He came with a health certificate and I took him to my own vet to verify that he's healthy. His next visit is in a month when his next set of vaccinations are due. However, I have noticed he has a weirdly metallic smell on his breath. It actually smells kind of like blood ... His stools look normal with no signs of occult blood. He's flea free and was tested at the vets for worms. Has anyone experienced this before with puppies? Could it be his teeth coming in? Could it be some metabolic disorder?

    • ANSWER:
      Look I will be honest bad breath in dogs can mean serious health problems obviously if you feed the dog raw meat it can cause them to have a metalic smell to it and can also smell kind of garlicy but in most cases it can mean issues with digestive system or the kidneys my advice take the pup to the vets again and have some bloods taken for peace of mind

      hope it helps

    what is the best machine to get?

    • ANSWER:
      The EcoBox is used for homes less than 1500 sq feet. the Freshair is used to cover homes between 1000 and 3000 sq feet, depending on the shape of your home and how many floors you have. i HAVE ADDED A PAPER THAT STELLS YOU MORE ABOUT HOW OUR SYSTEM WORKS

      What makes the Fresh Air Work?

      EcoQuest has been in the air purification business for nearly 20 years. During this time some of the best minds in the business have been working to develop a system to clean indoor air that is efficient, effective and economical. The result of this dedication and hard work is a product called Fresh Air. This marvelous air purifier will clean, purify, and sanitize up to 3000 sq feet of indoor living space. This is done by using SynAirG, five important systems working in harmony to give you the best quality air available.

      These systems are:
      Negative Ions:
      Negative ions (or anions as they are called), are distributed into the indoor space to cause the tiny, lighter than air particles that are floating in the air to bind together, become heavier than air, and settle out of your breathing space. You will quickly notice a dramatic reduction in the number of particles floating in a sunbeam that shines into the room. Where do the particles go? As the particles gain mass and weight, they settle out of your breathing space so they can no longer cause irritation. Some of the particulate will actually be oxidized by other functions of this air purification system. Over time, less and less particulate will be evident in your home or business. You may even find you have less cleaning to do.

      Radio “Frequency” Particle Reduction:
      This is a unique process that only EcoQuest has. Radio wave energy is distributed throughout the indoor space, traveling into adjoining rooms, down to the basement and upstairs to other floors. This Radio Wave energy puts a charge on particles it contacts and causes them to bind together like the more powerful Needle Point Ionization.
      This process extends the settling process up to 60 feet in all directions.

      Ultra-Violet light:
      High quality, powerful, germicidal quality UV-C light is produced using a powerful proprietary long-life UV bulb. This higher intensity UV-C bulb is also called a UVX bulb, because the bulbs frequency is at the high end of the UV band, just under the X-Band (penetrating frequency). A UV-X bulb produces a light with the same oxidation, sterilization and ionization properties as naturally occurring sunlight, destroying microbiological contaminants, bacteria and other irritants in your breathing space. This feature adds an additional cleansing effect to the Fresh Air’s process, helping produce safe, clean, germ-free air to breath.

      RCI, Certified Space Technology, ActivePure:
      Radiant Catalytic Ionization™ (RCI) is technology developed by NASA to clean the air in spacecraft. The process is called Photo Catalytic Oxidation and EcoQuest Fresh Air is the only residential Air Purification system carrying the NASA Space Foundation Certified Space Technology seal. The RCI technology replicates the cleaning power of the sun by utilizing a proprietary high-power UVX bulb shining on a catalytic target consisting of a honey-comb cell coated with a Quad Metallic Hydrophilic Coating. The coating is made by the bonding of four rare and noble metals in proper proportion. The RCI cell creates a “Purifying Plaza” consisting of Hydroxyls, Hydroxides, Super Oxide Ions, Ozonite Ions and Hydro-Peroxides, all of which are distributed throughout the air space where the purifier is located to clean the air and surfaces. University testing has shown reductions of mold, bacteria and viruses, including E-Coli, MRSA, Stachybotrys and Listeria up to 99.9%. As the Purifying Plasma enters the environment it destroys the microbiological contaminants they come in contact with, leaving the air and surfaces clean, fresh, and safe.

      Activated Oxygen for Additional Purification (Use this function for rapid freshen-up or for odor removal) :
      Nature’s purifier, a very active three atom form of oxygen known as ozone, is produced in the Fresh Air much the same way it is produced in nature. An optional feature of the Fresh Air, this very active form of oxygen is delivered out the front of the unit by an ultra-quiet fan when the function called “Hi-Mode” is engaged. The benefit of using activated oxygen is its ability to move throughout the home or office destroying cooking odors, cigar smoke, cigarette smoke, and pet odors.

      This feature will allow a deeper cleaning in the AWAY mode. It can be programmed for 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours but many homeowners will elect to manually activate the AWAY feature for only a few minutes if they have an incident such as burning the toast or popcorn in the microwave! Normal use of the AWAY mode is selecting 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours. After the preset time has expired, the Fresh Air returns to its normal settings to continue to give you protection 24/7 for pennies a d

  4. QUESTION:
    Why does my dog's rear-end have a metallic odor?
    Just this morning, I noticed that my dog (mini daschund) was licking his rear-end a lot. He wasn't scooting or anything...just licking. It's been on and off throughout the day. Now that I have been sitting with him awhile this evening, I am noticing a strong metallic smell. I checked his breath and that smells normal so I checked closer to the rear and that's definitely where the smell is coming from. What could that be?

    • ANSWER:
      Impacted anal gland.

      Go to a groomer or vet and ask them to suppress his anal glands.

      Your vet/groomer can teach you how to do it also.

      If it bothers you or happens a lot you can get anal sac surgery.

      Usually dogs empty their own anal gland when going for a poo but it seems your little man isn't so you should look at getting a better food for him.

  5. QUESTION:
    My dog has metallic smelling breath?
    My dog is about 11 months old. He's lost all of his baby teeth and doesn't quite have that same strong "puppy breath" smell anymore. But it's still pretty bad. It smells metallic-y.
    He's not my first dog. My other dog doesn't have this breath and they both eat the same food.
    What could this be?
    No blood, either.

    • ANSWER:
      Blood? Do you see blood present?
