Original Question: Can I remove tartar and plaque from my dog or cat’s teeth at home? - Anonymous
Once plaque and tartar has been established in the mouth, it is very difficult to remove it through the use of home care products. In this situation, it is best to have a professional cleaning performed and then begin daily home care after recovery.
