Bad breath and teeth health

I'm working on getting the plaque build-up off my pit's teeth and a bunch has been softened enough to chip off or brush off. His breath smells worse than it did before. I'm thinking the newly chipped off areas are releasing the smell, but I was told it could also be in his gut.
I don't have him on a probiotic right now. Would it help his bad breath or just be a good idea in general?
I'm using "Mad about organics oral additive powder." It smells like fennel and is made locally. It works wonders with my cats, but doesn't seem to be doing much for my dog. I'm also using a water additive. It helps, but his breath still smells like anal glands. (I'm a groomer, so I'm familiar with the aroma.) I've checked his glands and they are never full. Also brush his teeth with an enzyme toothpaste and put coconut oil in his food.
Is there another product or something I can do to help this? His breath is so bad, you can smell it from about 3ft away if his mouth is open.

Probiotics could help his bad breath by giving him the beneficial bacteria in his mouth to out weigh the foul smelling kind. I would also have him checked to make sure that he doesn't have a tooth that's rotting. If it is the exposed plaque that's causing it you might want to get his teeth professionally cleaned for quicker results. Using coconut oil on his food like you're doing may help and you can even brush it's teeth with it.

He was checked over by a vet before we adopted him, but they said his teeth were perfect. We plan to get him checked by a better vet. We have to wait to get in. I'll pick up some probiotics to see if that will help for now.

Sounds good, please post back and let us know how things are going. It might help someone else having the same problem with their dog.

After a couple days of probiotics and scaling Gims teeth, his breath has improved some. I'll keep brushing his teeth along with the other stuff we've included in his routine. I wish I had taken before pics. It looked like some of his teeth were rotten. Now that the build-up is off them, they're white and solid.
We'll have to work on his ears more as well. One closed ear canal and one mostly closed ear canal are not helping with his smell. No ear infection though. So all that's good.

There is a condition called lip fold pyoderma that can mimic bad breath when the odor is really coming from the lip folds around the dog’s mouth. There is a good article about causes and treatment of mouth odors in the June 2018 issue of Whole Dog Journal.

Oh, cool. I'll look that up, thanks!
I started giving Gimlet digestive enzymes and probiotics after every meal. It has seemed to help his breathe a lot. He can be panting near you and you aren't gagging on his stink.

Sounds like my girl Athena (the taller one in my avatar). The only thing that I found she won't eat is celery, unless you out something on it. LOL.

We just found out Gimlet will eat celery, carrots, and he nabbed a chili pepper this morning we're working on leave it, but that's a hard thing to do when food is everything.

Wow, a chili pepper! He might not felt it going down, let's hope he doesn't on the way out too.

With a combination of made about organics oral additive, water additive, and daily tooth brushing, Gimlet is making progress and his breath smells so much better. Still stinky, but getting better. The digestive tablets seem to be helping his tummy as well.
