Your veterinary team will help you determine this at your pet’s Wellness Exam. Every pet is unique, and the buildup of tartar and plaque can vary from one adorable furball to another.  In a perfect world, every pet should have their teeth professionally cleaned at least once a year and have daily at-home dental care to help prevent issues from developing. Let your veterinary team know if you notice anything like bad breath or if your pet is having trouble chewing food or dropping food from their mouth.
