Why Home Dog and Cat Teeth Cleaning is Important

Dental disease occurs when plaque and tartar form on the teeth over time and harden into calculus, which is impossible to remove with brushing. Bacteria in this material can find its way under the gum line and cause severe infection. Fortunately, brushing your pet’s teeth every day can minimize the buildup of plaque and tartar and prevent dental disease altogether. It may also increase the length of time between professional teeth cleanings.


To supplement your pet’s teeth cleaning routine, you can also try a prescription dental diet, dental chews/treats, water additives, and oral care wipes. Ask us about what we offer and how it can help your pet!
