How Often Does Your Pet Need a Dental Exam?

How Often Does Your Pet Need a Dental Exam?

Most pet owners know that they need to bring their dog or cat to the vet at least once a year for them to stay safe, happy, and healthy. But how often does your pet need a dental examination? If your pet’s teeth haven’t been checked in a while, then it may be time to call [inset veterinarian name] and schedule an appointment. Here’s what you need to know about how frequently you should schedule dental exams for your pet. 

We recommend most pets get a dental cleaning every year. 

It’s recommended that your dog or cat receive a professional dental cleaning at least once a year. During the cleaning, your vet will check to make sure that your pet’s teeth and gums are in good condition, and that there are no signs of any health issues such as gum disease. 

Some pets may require more frequent cleanings. 

It’s important to keep in mind that some pets may need to have their teeth and gums cleaned more often than others. For example, if your pet has gum disease, then your vet may ask you to bring them in more often for a cleaning to help to stabilize their current oral health. 
If you have any questions about preventative care for your pet’s teeth and gums, then be sure to call Keller Lake Animal Hospital today at 651-490-0991! The more informed you are as a pet owner, the easier it will be to take proper care of your beloved animal friend.
