We provide cosmetic teeth cleaning services for dogs at APL Teeth Cleaning & Treats. As a dog owner, one of the best things you can do to take care of your furry friend is to have us clean their teeth. Our dog teeth cleaning process is cosmetic and removes plaque and tartar buildup to give your dog a brighter, whiter, and healthier smile. It can also help you keep your dog’s bad breath at a manageable level.

How Often Should You Have Dog Teeth Cleaning Done?

As a pet owner, you probably want to know how often you should make an appointment for dog teeth cleaning. We recommend brushing your dog’s teeth with a special canine toothbrush and toothpaste between two and three times a week. And for most dogs, we recommend bringing them to us for dog teeth cleaning once or twice a year.

A teeth cleaning appointment may be a little bit hard on your dog if they’re not used to the process. For this reason, we recommend acclimating your dog to the teeth cleaning process by brushing their teeth at home. Purchase a toothpaste in a flavor your dog will like, offer plenty of comfort and reassurance, and only brush for a 30-second to 1-minute period, giving your dog breaks every few seconds with some positive reinforcement.

Your dog (and their teeth) will appreciate the effort you put into taking care of their oral health. To learn more about how often you should schedule dog teeth cleaning or to set up an appointment, get in touch with us today.
