A comprehensive oral health care program for a dog or cat includes both professional and home care segments. The level of the animal’s oral health, combined with the owner’s willingness and ability to provide adequate preventive home dental care for the pet, should be periodically monitored and charted in the medical record. The strength of a successful dental prophylactic program comes from frequent and good home care and a supportive recall system to ensure that the pet receives periodic professional care, appropriate to its oral health and the level of home care being performed.
