    Hi,
    I have a male westie who will be 3 in November. In January he had his teeth cleaned at the vets to remove plaque etc.
    I have been brushing his teeth everyday, he has a dental stick and a fresh breath foam spray everyday but his breath really smells, his gums are bleeding and his teeth are going brown again. I use logic toothpaste as that was recommended by pets at home but can anyone recommend anything else?
    Thanks
    Lucy

    I would go back to your Vet, it sounds as if his gums are infected and it might take more than brushing to sort it out.

    You may be overdoing it. Brushing, a dental foam, Logic and dental stick everyday sounds like overkill to me.

    This could cause both the bleeding gums and the bad breath.

    I would use just the Logic and the odd dental stick and, if his gums don't improve, let your Vet see him.
