Dental care for your cat is pretty important. A lot of people don’t realize this, but they should be checking the teeth of their cats regularly because issues can mean a sign of bigger problems, or can lead to them eventually, just as the case is with humans.
Brushing a cat’s teeth is important. It should be done fairly often, with the right kind of toothpaste made specifically for cats. Introducing a toothbrush can be a slow process as your cat may resist, so it’s best to start by rubbing the gums with your finger, then trying it with a piece of gauze and massaging the gums and teeth. Slowly, they may become more used to the process and you can try a toothbrush.
Without dental care, cats can deal with things like tooth decay, gum inflammation which can be potentially dangerous, gingivitis an even cysts. These issues can cause tooth loss, difficulty eating and can potentially be a sign for an even greater infection that can be a serious issue for your pet’s health.
