    Question smelly lips!

    I was holding Charlie the other day and his face smelled really bad and at first I thought it was his ears but it was his lips. Today my little sister gave him a cheese cracker with peanutbutter and some of it was still like tucked in his lips cause they like hang down. Anyone else have this problem?thanks!

    Yes it can be a problem if they have lots of folds in their lips, but easily resolved if you wash the area every day, with a wet flannel, also remember to clean the teeth regularly.

    In addition to wiping his face (can use a dampened paper towel), you might want to use stainless steel water bowls rather than plastic, if you aren't already. Plastic bowls can harbor bacteria, while stainless steel is considered to be antibacterial. We put the food and water bowls in the dishwasher daily.

    Boxers are even worse than Cavaliers for facial folds, so all our guys get their faces wiped over with a warm, damp cloth after meals. And like Cathy, water dishes & dinner dishes go through the dishwasher daily.

    Yes, it's very important to keep lips fold clean because that smelliness can turn into an ugly infection that is very hard to eradicate.
