Teeth cleaning

Postby bhennessy » Sat Sep 07, 2019 8:50 pm

Is there a consensus or best practice on how often to have this done for sporting dogs and at what age to start, if at all?

especially check back teeth closely for tartar build up.....lots of vets now employ sedative free cleanings....get it done annually if needed, will add years to your dog's longevity.
also use dental chews daily, if not brushing.

I personally know of 3 dogs that have died from the anesthesia used during teeth cleaning.
We give our dogs Pig Ears every other day and an occasional Bully Stick.
Vets always comment about how clean our dog's teeth are ---- even at ages 11 and 13.

I let my dog chew on large raw beef bones for about 15-20 minutes twice a week. I just put it back in the freezer in a zip loc bag when he’s done. So far it has been keeping his teeth clean.
