SHOULD I HAVE MY PET'S TEETH CLEANED? ONE ANSWER...

If this question has occurred to you for any reason, then Yarmouth Veterinary Center's answer is YES! you should have your pet's teeth cleaned. We are completely convinced of the great value of a YVC professional dental cleaning with regard to improving your pet's quality of life. 

We recommend incorporating dental care into your pet's professional health care plan, along with annual exams, parasite control, and vaccinations. We believe the best schedule is an annual professional cleaning, starting between one and two years of age and continuing for as many years as your pet's over-all health status allows for a low-risk general anesthesia. 

However, even if you have no interest in committing to this or any other plan, or if you would consider no more dental care other than a one-time cleaning, or if you can't see (or smell) any problems in your pet's mouth, or if you already provide daily at-home care, or if you have an older pet with some non-dental health issues: if you thought to ask yourself this question, our answer is YES!

(Some pets have serious health problems that significantly increase the risk of general anesthesia, which is required for a dental cleaning. We always carefully evaluate a patient prior to anesthesia and we recommend and proceed with dental cleaning only when it is appropriate to do so.)
