I guess it's the catfood you're feeding him. You could change flavors, and you can also brush his teeth. I wish I could be more helpful.

Yes, with supplies made for cats. Here's a link for you:

Of course, you can get the supplies in any pet supply store, but this link has instructions. Dry food helps to keep them clean, but canned food is better for the cat, accoding to some vets. I use canned for two meals and dry at night. Good luck!

Two other suggestions: cat dental cleanser, also from Dr. Foster & Smith, and chlorophyll in drinking water, available from health food stores. There's a topic on it here somewhere if you want to search, also several about tooth brushing.

When I adopted Mz Tess she had terrible breath.
I sent her for a dental cleaning. It helped.

Have you tried the Ernest Ainsley method?

I've been using Oxyfresh Pet Oral Hygiene Solution in my cats water for over a year & I never had a problem. I liked their products so much that I recently became a distributor. Since then I started using the Pet Gel as a toothpaste to clean their teeth & gums. I just to apply some Pet Gel to a piece of gauze & wipe their teeth down with that.

brush their teeth, use tartar fighting treats, the "breath stuff in the water" and a good cleaning from the vet all are great ideas, especially when used together! good luck! your other option is a clothespin for your nose!
