Commonly Asked Questions About Pet Dental Care
We receive a number of questions about pet dental care on a regular basis, so our veterinary team has answered some of these below for your reference and convenience.
How often does my pet need dental cleanings?
This can vary from one pet to the next, but we generally recommend at least one annual dental exam and cleaning for most pets. Some pets (such as senior pets) may benefit from more frequent care. It can be helpful and convenient to schedule your pet’s dental care at the same time you schedule your pet’s routine health and wellness exams.
What are the benefits of routine pet dental care?
Bringing your pet in for routine cleanings and dental exams can greatly reduce your pet’s chances of developing oral and dental health problems, including painful tooth abscesses, decay, and even gum disease. Furthermore, keeping your pet’s teeth and gums healthy can help your pet achieve fresher breath, so you can reap the benefits as well!
How can I maintain my pet’s dental health at home?
In between professional exams and cleanings, there are plenty of ways you can go about protecting your pet’s dental health at home. If you’re not doing so already, try to get into the routine of brushing your pet’s teeth a few times a week. There are also special dental treats you can give your pet to protect against plaque build-up.
