Dental Care

At Clinique Vétérinaire Vaudreuil, we have a dedicated dentistry room, minimizing the spread of bacteria during scaling and polishing. The room is equipped with its own digital dental X-ray machine, since X-rays are the only way to tell for sure if a tooth is healthy. We believe oral health is a key component of a pet’s overall, since dental-related discomfort can impact your pet’s enjoyment of life, the same way it can affect yours.

How often should I bring my pet to the clinic for dental cleaning and scaling?

Cleaning and scaling frequency varies depending on your dog’s or cat’s breed, the food they eat and how often you brush their teeth. Some animals should see us once a year, while others might only need to visit a few times in their lifetime. During your pet’s annual checkup, your veterinarian will examine your pet’s teeth and give their recommendations.

How often should I brush my pet’s teeth?

To prevent dental problems, you should ideally brush your pet’s teeth once a day. Our team is happy to share our tricks for making brushing a breeze.

Specialized food and dental treats can also help eliminate some of the plaque, but they can never do as good a job as regular brushing combined with veterinary care.

When is a good age to start?

You can start getting your pet used to brushing very young, at around 8 to 12 weeks of age. However, at four to five months, you’ll have to temporarily stop while your pet’s adult teeth grow in, to ensure brushing isn’t associated with teething pain.
