Tartar buildup

I got charlie my cockerspaniel from PSPCA . Well first found out he had an ear infection wich tehy should have treated. Then I take him to groomer and they cut his ball and side of afce. Well that heales with some peroxide and ear clenong and antibiotics. Now found out he has soome tartar buildup w/ supposedly takes a long to to be visibe ( to someone that isn't a vet) so he probably had it when I got him. Any home remedies if not estimate on teeth cleaning?

You should take him into your vet for a dental cleaning. My vet (who is my boss as well) generally recommends annual dental cleanings after the age of 3 yrs. At the clinic I work for, a dental on a dog of that estimated size generally costs between $85 - $98 including polishing, anesthesia, anibiotics, and mouth rinse. (Extractions are extra if needed and prices vary depending on which teeth and how difficult the extraction is) Everything we use with our dentals is human grade. They are the same scalers and polishers your dentist uses on you. It's REALLY worth having done as tarter build up can lead to periodontal disease, gingivitis, abcesses, and kidney and liver problems. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
