How to Practice Good Pet Dental Care

Our pet's teeth are more important than we realize. It is incredibly important to keep our pets’ teeth properly cleaned. This will help prevent potential tooth loss and problems that can occur when proper dental hygiene is not practiced. Fortunately, Prospect Park Veterinary Clinic in Brooklyn, New York has some information on teeth cleaning for pets and why you need to bring us your pets every so often so we can check up on them.

Taking Care of Your Pets’ Teeth

Optimal pet health begins at home. There are dozens of small pet-sized brushes available that can help you brush your cat or dog's teeth. There are also specially designed kinds of toothpaste out there that are meant to help you clean your pet's teeth. For optimal tooth health, you should clean your pet's teeth daily. However, this may seem like a daunting task for most people to clean your pet's teeth every day as well as your own. There are still optimal health benefits to be gained if you clean your pet's teeth regularly, even if it’s not every day. Frequent cleanings are necessary in order to keep your pets’ teeth in good shape.

When to Visit Your Veterinarian

Though you may be able to clean your pet's teeth at home, it is still recommended that you bring your pet in to see your local veterinarian to get a professional cleaning done. Your pet dental expert has the right tools in order to get a deep clean that is healthy for your pet. Veterinarians recommend that you bring your pet in at least once a year for a professional deep cleaning. This will give your veterinarian an idea of how healthy your pet's teeth are and if any extra steps are required to improve their health.
