How Often Should My Pet Receive Teeth Cleaning?

Professionals recommend having your cat or dog’s teeth cleaned every 6 months to a year depending on the breed of dog you own. If you already take good care of your dog’s or cat’s teeth, you might only have to receive dental cleaning once every other year. Although, always discuss any major changes with your veterinarian first.

If your cat or dog is starting to get bad breath, it’s most likely time to bring them in for an exam. Other reasons for dental cleaning include bleeding gums, becoming more difficult to eat or when seeing blood on chews.

Pet (Cat & Dog) Dental Exams

Most dogs and cats should receive dental exams at least once a year. This pet dental exam includes, supragingival and subgingival cleaning, polishing, intraoral evaluation and further periodontal therapy. Pet dental cleanings at Val Vista Animal Ranch Hospital involves removal of plaque and calculus, either with sonic/ultrasonic instruments listed above, hand instruments or gingival margin, periodontal probing, intra-oral radio-graphs, charting and more treatments such as extractions if needed or deep periodontal therapy.

Dental Treatment Options & Take Home Instructions

After the oral examination is complete, the initial treatment plan is set. Your veterinarian will discuss different treatment options and then the client will be able to decide which dental treatment plan is best suited for their pet. Next, the patient/pet is anesthetized and the periodontal therapy begins. After the therapy is complete, you will be given take home instructions for caring for your pet from home.

The common action course is to withhold water and food until the vomiting has stopped for two hours. Afterwards, water will be introduced slowly, followed by a bland diet.
