Dental Care at Home

Home care for our dental patients is extremely important for your pet's continued oral health.  Plaque starts to form in as little as 6-8 hours following a professional cleaning.  This plaque will then start to mineralize into tartar or "calculus" in a matter of days to weeks.  Plaque prevention is the key in keeping your pet's mouth clean and healthy.

We have many products available that are very effective in preventing plaque.  We would be happy to discuss with you what would work best for your pet based on you and your pet's lifestyle.

Brushing is the gold standard in maintaining good oral health (just as it is in our own oral care).  Please watch the video below for some helpful tips in starting a tooth brushing regimen at home.
