Yes, just like in humans, pet’s need daily tooth brushing to remove plaque from their teeth. Plaque is the soft, ivory colored, sticky substance that is formed by bacteria in the mouth. Plaque forms into calculus or tartar in as little as 1 to 2 days. Calculus is the hard, yellow-brown deposits on the teeth. Once calculus has formed on your pet’s teeth, a professional dental cleaning is needed to remove the substance.

Brushing your pet’s teeth is the most effective way to keep their teeth and gums healthy. This is a slow process that takes patience and persistence from both owners and pets. Our staff will be happy to have a one-on-one demonstration with you to assist with your success in your pet’s at home dental care.
