Dental Care For Cats and Kittens

Send your cats and kittens for regular veterinary check up. Too many people forgo veterinary care for their cats. It is important to remember that cats and kittens need annual check-ups just like human does. Veterinarians also recommend a cat's teeth to be brushed on a regular basis. Proper oral care will ensure a healthy cat. If you feed your feline canned cat food regularly you may notice a yellowing of your cats teeth. Even dry cat food can cause discoloration of the teeth. There are several brand of pet toothpastes available for both dogs and cats. Ask your veterinarian for a demonstration on how to brush your cat's teeth properly.

You just need a small amount of the pet tooth paste which is usually a meat flavor or some cat food flavor. Put it onto a tooth brush and show it to your cat. Your cat will try to lick the toothpaste off the brush as it is cat food. At the same time, gently brush their teeth. Some cats are tolerant of brushing teeth while others need some persuasion.
