How Often Should Your Dog's Teeth Be Cleaned?

Just like humans need to brush, floss, and see a dentist for top oral care, it’s up to us to make sure our dogs get the dental cleaning in San Jose they need as well. Your dog doesn’t need to brush and floss twice a day like we do, but good oral health promotes good overall health and protects him from many conditions and their uncomfortable symptoms. You can’t use regular human toothpaste to take care of your dog’s teeth, but you can rely on your veterinarian for help.

Exactly how often you need to have your dog’s teeth cleaned depends on what kind of dog you have. It’s smart to start caring for smaller dogs’ teeth when they’re younger, so they should have a dental cleaning by around the age of two. Other breeds might not need dental attention until they’re a bit older. Your veterinarian can give your dog’s teeth a professional cleaning at each annual visit, but you can also take care of your canine friend at home as well. Rub your puppy’s gums when he’s young, and use a special dog toothpaste.
