cat-brushingDid you know that dental problems are one of the most common things that your vet deals with in cats? Most people associate pet dental problems in dogs but they are just as common in cats. These conditions are preventable with good hygiene. Cat owners should always be aware of any problems in your cats mouth. Some things that you should be aware of are:

  • Their reluctance to groom.
  • Lumps of bumps
  • Bad breath
  • drooling
  • Reluctance to eat dried food when that the food they are used to.
  • Red, inflamed or bleeding gums

Problems could be those similar in humans like gingivitis, abscess, periodontal disease or endodontic disease.

Your vet will be able to diagnose and treat most dental problems. Brushing your cats teeth can help prevent disease in the mouth, teeth and gums. There areĀ  cat accessories that you can get from your vet which will help your care for your cat’s teeth and gums.
