Mia has the worst breath
Her teeth are not the best
I do brush them and give her treats for her teeth and breath
does anyone have any suggestions
I got her from a puppy mill when she was 2.5 years old her teeth were a lot worse but I know that now all I can do is keep up vet dental care and care at home for her teeth
I just know that might be other things to try
Since Yorkies are known for bad teeth it is not a surprise to me
I just want her to keep her teeth as long as possible

Many people here use Petzlife oral gel. I have used it on my boys for about 2 years now, and their teeth are white and clean. You will still need to brush regularly, but Petzlife helps to remove the plaque and improve breath. Have a look at the website.

Hi Meeker, Yorkies are known for dental problems, if you have not had her teeth cleaned by the vet you should check with your vet. My Yorkie had such bad breath to come out of such a pretty face, turned out she had gingivitus and had to get 3 teeth pulled, she's 5 yr old. I got her nine months ago got her teeth cleaned shortly after getting her; and now am having to take her again for a 2nd cleaning because of her stinky mouth...and she loves to lick my face!
My vet said Yorkies are like people some people are prone to gum disease and need cleaning more frequently. Just be sure that who ever does the cleaning, they are skilled in giving anesthia to a small dog like a Yorkie. My Yorkie weighs 4 pounds but she did fine with the anesthia and the vet also gave her antibotics after the cleaning.
