Why does my parrot have bad breath? He has always had it and is now seven years old. ?

nowyat asked:

This is especially annoying because he likes to get right in my face and breath on me. it’s sort of garlicky, but he doesn’t eat garlic. Maybe he needs more vegetables? Otherwise he seems perfectly healthy. Thanks. P.S. If you own a bird, does he have bad breath?
Thanks Soye! I bet it’s his hatred of vegetables. He likes them cooked though. i’ll start serving him some extra meals everyday. Maybe I can microwave frozen ones.

Beating Bad Breath – 4 Simple Home Remedies To Freshen Your Breath

Abhishek Agarwal asked:

Bad breath becomes a social problem for any one who suffers with it. They cannot get close to people without feeling embarrassed and are always aware of this short coming. Some people cannot afford to go to doctors and some just do not like to do so especially, to dentists. For this category of people there are home remedies which could be of some help, maybe not in curing the problem but at least minimizing it to some extent.

1. Thorough cleaning habits

Keeping good oral hygiene and maintaining clean dental habits is the first remedy. So it is essential to brush your teeth after every meal and floss them at least once a day. If you cannot do this minimal thing then it shows that you are either not aware of the problem or do not want to be bothered with trying to maintain a better oral hygiene. This would be the first step in helping you to get rid of your bad breath.

2. Eating avocado helps bad breath

This is not a much known fact but eating avocado can reduce bad breath considerably. Of course you should not do the overeating bit too. This fruit is available easily in every grocery store and is effective in controlling the problem of bad breath to quite an extent.

3. Reduce your intake of protein

If you are conscious of the fact that you have bad breath then you should find out the reason for it too. Maybe you are eating protein rich food like too much of steak or chicken and meat. This definitely increases bad breath. Instead switch over to more vegetables and fresh fruits and see the improvement in your condition. By changing your eating habits you will reduce or even get rid of the bad breath completely.

4. Start drinking more water

Another common cause of bad breath is a dry mouth. Drinking more water will not only help this but also help many other medical problems too. You can consume water directly or eat a lot of water bearing fruits and juices to increase the quantity of fluid intake on a regular basis. It is advisable to take drinking water in a measured bottle and make it a point to finish this water. In this way you will be aware of the amount of water you have consumed and can try and increase it a little everyday.
