Dental Care for Cats

Dental Care for Cats

If you own a cat, you may have wondered how you can care for its teeth so it does not suffer from health problems. To receive dental care for cats, give a call to TLC for Pets in Reisterstown to make an appointment with our veterinarian. Here is some information about the importance of oral hygiene in cats and how an appointment can help.

Why Dental Care Is Necessary

If your pet suffers from dental problems, pain and discomfort are likely. If your pet's teeth are not cleaned regularly, the possibility of a buildup of bacteria upon their surfaces will occur. Routine evaluations of the condition of your pet's teeth will allow for prompt treatment, perhaps reducing the exacerbation of symptoms and further deterioration.

How To Clean Your Cat's Teeth

Many cats will adapt to allowing their owners to brush their teeth. Purchase a cat toothbrush and toothpaste from a pet supply store. When your cat is in a relaxed mood, place some paste on the brush and allow your pet to lick it to get used to the taste. Attempt to brush a tooth or two during this session. Continue the process again the next day.

If your cat enjoys the taste of the paste, it will most likely allow you to brush more teeth the next time. If the taste is not desirable to your cat, switch to another brand. If your pet does not allow you to brush its teeth, make appointments with our vet for routine cleanings.
