How Often Should Your Pet Receive a Teeth Cleaning?

Your pet’s dental health is as important as your own. Regular teeth cleanings ensure that your pet has optimal dental health which keeps diseases at bay. Dental diseases can lead to abnormal changes in your pet’s liver, heart, and kidneys. Visit our veterinarians at North Heights Veterinary Clinic in Appleton for veterinary care, including dental cleanings.

Teeth Cleaning

Providing quality dental care should be a priority for pet owners. Many pet owners don’t know how often or why their pets need professional teeth cleanings. Many pet owners take their cats and dogs to veterinarians for the first dental cleaning at age two or three. All pets are different, so the cleaning process is specifically tailored to suit your pet’s needs for optimal dental health.

According to most veterinarians, pets require professional teeth cleanings annually for big breeds, and at least twice per year for smaller breeds. All canines are unique based on age, breed, and dental health, so we will advise you on when to bring your pet in for teeth cleaning sessions.

At-Home Dental Care

While veterinarians recommend annual teeth cleanings for pets, it is crucial to maintain good dental hygiene and take care of your pet regularly at home. Brush your pet’s teeth regularly to keep your pet’s mouth healthy, clean, and safe from dental problems. We can recommend certain dental treats that pets love and help keep their smile healthy. Our team at North Heights Veterinary Clinic is happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding your pet’s dental health.
