How often do your dogs have their teeth cleaned at the vets?
After viewing Anna's thread with Simba and his recent dental visit, it got me thinking about starting a thread on dental visits. I took Ripley to the vet recently to have him look at two small bumps on his tail. It turns out that they are just cysts and he wasn't concerned at all but did offer to remove them if it concerned me. He said he was way more concerned about his teeth. :o
He said that Ripley, and most small dogs, have a tendency to build up tartar very quickly and he was concerned that Ripley might have tooth loss if we let it go too long. That all said, I made an appointment for Ripley to have his teeth cleaned and cysts removed next Friday. It has only been 18 months since his last cleaning at the vet's but he does need it. :o Bella, on the other hand, doesn't build up tartar that quickly so she is in good shape.
So, how often do you have your dogs' teeth cleaned at the vet's?
