    I'd guess not before two (as adult teeth are only in at 6 months or so, so not too much would build up in the first year) and after that it would depend on the state of the teeth. Some seem prone to lots of tartar while others are not. Vets here don;t tend to do cleanings automatically. As mine get raw bones and chicken necks/wings their teeth are pretty clean but I notice some tartar. I really need to brush I suppose -- need to take a closer look in both their mouths and see what's happening in there!
