Help to keep your pet's smile gleaming year-round and register for a FREE* dental check this September.
Maintaining good dental care at home, in between visits to the vets, is really important for keeping your pet's teeth clean. It should be part of your daily routine.
Here are some at-home dental care options you can try to help keep your pet's smile gleaming year-round:
You should regularly clean your pet's teeth with a pet-friendly toothbrush and paste to prevent plaque and tartar buildup. You could start off by smearing a dot of toothpaste on your finger and using it to clean, before graduating up to a toothbrush.
Dental chews and toys
These can be a great way to help keep teeth clean and some specialised dental treats have additives to help reduce the buildup of plaque and tartar.
Try using a daily drinking water additive that has been formulated to freshen up your pet's teeth and help prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar.
There are special dental diets that are formulated to help reduce tartar buildup. These often have larger kibble that helps to mechanically clean the teeth as your pet chews.
Pop in for a visit
We recommend bringing your pet in for a dental check every 6 to 12 months, depending on the state of their teeth (some pets need their teeth cleaning more often than others).
Come in and see us if you would like to book them in, or to discuss ongoing dental care for your pet. You can also purchase all of the above mentioned products in the clinic.
