Tooth cleaning

It's really worthwhile to check out your dog's teeth to make sure that there isn't any placque buildup. We regularly get the teeth of our older dogs cleaned. It does involve anaesthesia so that the dental tools to chip away placque buildup can be used. While it may be possible to brush the teeth of your pet, we just don't have the time to brush the teeth of all of our dogs. We regularly look in their mouths and especially check the molars to determine how clean they are. I tend to look in the mouth a lot and that isn't always good, as some dogs will get mouth shy because of constantly looking. It certainly is better to have good clean teeth which makes the doggy kisses pleasant!
