Do some cats just have bad breath?
I have three cats, and one of them has pretty bad breath. I mean, no cat breath ever smells great but one is especially bad where I have to breathe through my mouth when he licks my face or yawns near me so I don't smell it.
I know there are a lot of health reasons that could cause bad breath, but this has been going on since I got him, about 4 years ago. He's had numerous vet visits since then and no problems. He seems in great health otherwise, his teeth are fine, he eats normally. He just has always had really bad breath.
I've tried different food throughout the years and it doesn't seem to make a difference. Has anyone experienced bad breath not related to a health issue, or do you know of any health issues that could be going on for so long without getting worse/serious? I would think an abscess or a tumor or kidney failure or something would have become much worse in 4 years.
Thanks for any insight.
