J Am Anim Hosp Assoc. 2006 Jan-Feb;42(1):77-9. doi: 10.5326/0420077.

Abstract

Canine oral malodor may be the first indication that a serious disease process is occurring in the oral cavity. Various methods for detecting oral malodor have been used in humans, and some of these are suitable for collecting data in the dog. Oral malodor often responds favorably to improved oral hygiene, administered first by a trained professional and followed with adequate home care.
