Dental Care

How fast your pet's teeth get dirty depends on several factors: by Dr. Karen Becker

  • Your pet's age and breed

  • Genetic tendencies

  • Your pet's diet (high-carbohydrate diets - or those containing rice, corn, wheat, tapioca, or potatoes - promote the need for more frequent dental cleaning)

  • The amount of saliva your pet produces (the more the better)
