What You Should Do After Your Pet's Teeth Get Cleaned
If your pet received a professional teeth cleaning, you have already taken a wonderfully proactive step to his health. Dental problems are painful for pets, just like how they are for people, so by taking the critical step of giving your animal a teeth cleaning, you save him the discomfort and complications that come with when letting a dental issue arise. After a teeth cleaning, do the following steps our veterinarians in Boca Raton at West Boca Veterinary Center recommend to ensure your pet’s mouth is clean, stays fresh, and healthy for as long as possible. Here is what to do after a pet teeth cleaning:
Brush regularly: Our Boca Raton vets did the tough stuff. Now keep those gorgeous teeth of your animal glowing by brushing them with a toothpaste and toothbrush designed for pets. Take it slow and break it into several sessions if you need to. You'll both get used to this quickly and be able to finish this essential task swiftly.
Offer tooth-friendly toys: Provide toys that are designated for pets. Toys for children may contain hard pieces that could damage the teeth or gums of your companion animal, and these are not made for the rough chewing that pets can do.
Offer dental treats: Some treats are not made for keeping the teeth or mouth cleaned. Ask our veterinarians about what are the best treats to offer to your animal to help protect his oral health.
