This might sound totally nuts, but has anyone else noticed their 'too gets "morning breath" like a human?

Zeeba's breath generally isn't phenomenal anyhow (except after he eats his zupreem fruit blend pellets! LOL), but i've definitely noticed his breath get's pretty smelly in the morning. I REALLY noticed it just now when he kissed me on the nose! Yuck! <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

Just wondering. smile

Hey there Katy,

In our home Victor is the one with the morning breath, especially if dinner the night before contained garlic. It's enough to knock you over sometimes. We call it BBB. (Bad Birdie Breath) laugh

Hmmmm...never noticed that with my M2. My kids are going to think I'm crazy when they see me checking for it.

Gideon has bad breath a lot, because he loves garlicky and spicy food! <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

Yes Too's have bad breath it's one of their trademarks.

I am pretty use to it but sometimes i have to give them an orange or lemon to chew on to help get rid of it.

I'm new to the board and came here specifically looking for "garlic breath" remedies! My bird loves garlic bread! But WOW.....she reeks for weeks aftwerwards!

I'll try the lemons...not real confident that she'll take them/eat (you know how finicky women can be) but it's sure worth a try.

Any other suggestions?

I put a sprig of lemon balm or mint in the cage if he's had something particularly pungent the night before....he rips it up and I am not sure how much he actually ingests, but he does smell pretty good afterwards.

I never really thought about bad breath with Sam, my G2, as I don't let her up close to my face. I'll have to ask hubby if she has birdie breath.

My Alexandrine, on the other hand, has horrible breath all the time. I've tried all the practical things like mint and lemon but she still has nasty breath.

A while back, it was suggested to me that I give her a couple of whole cloves to help the problem. The thing is, I don't know if they are safe.

Does anyone know?

I would suggest that a 'clove' was a bit too strong.

Cinnamon sticks work wonders for BBB.

It's really crop breath, and it normally has an odor that's not too offensive. ( actually many of us think of it as just " 'Too breath" ) smile Of course, spicy foods may change that somewhat, but if the odors really offensive or continuous, keep a close eye out for yeast infection or other malady.

This is very interesting to me, because Ootie, my 5yr old 'too doesn't seem to have any odor to her breath at all. I guess I'm thankful...lol. I've got two dogs and that's about all I could stand!! But she does smell like maple syrup!! Seriously, it's a very sweet scent that she puts out and it's delightful to us.

Mr Mollie smells pretty sweet most of the time too - it's really quite pleasant. However, having said that - anything too garlicky or spicy will smell absolutely disgusting the next morning.

My Nadia's breath is just fine,I think the Zupreme helps.
In fact,she has a very pleasant aroma in general,especially after her shower.
Frankly,I worry more about my morning breath offending her. smile

<img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> lmao. That is so funny. I'm with Candee...my U2 has very sweet breath unless he has just helped me out in the kitchen by peeling garlic (he's quite talented with this chore--very diligently removes the skin and drops the whole clove into the bowl).

I never knew exactly what his regular breath smelled like until I picked up a bar of honey soap in the organics section and thought, "OMG...this smells just like Barney's breath." It's honey! Perhaps they sweeten the Kaytee Exact with honey?!? He doesn't seem to pick up any lasting odor from table foods...it's definitely gone by the next day.
