Cat Dental Care

Your cat’s mouth is very important to them. It allows them to eat their food, groom themselves, and to give you licks and kisses to show affection. Unfortunately, the health of the mouth is often overlooked, and dental disease is the most likely result.

Why is oral and dental health important?

Dental disease should be taken seriously for several reasons. Accumulated plaque and tartar lead to bacterial growth. Eventually, bacteria from the mouth can get into the bloodstream and infect other parts of the body. Cats with dental disease will often feel pain, even if they don’t show it. And bad breath makes it unpleasant to be close to your cat. Proper dental care will address all these issues to make your cat healthier, pain-free, and pleasant to be around.

How often should you brush your cat’s teeth?

It only takes a few minutes a day to brush your cat’s teeth. We sell tiny cat-sized tooth brushes that will fit in their little mouths. Special meat-flavoured toothpastes for cats are available that make the experience something they actually look forward to. It is easiest to get your cat used to tooth brushing as a kitten, but adult cats can learn almost as quickly.If you are interested in learning more, give us a call or drop by the clinic. We can show you how to train your cat to like getting it’s teeth brushed.

What is involved in a dental cleaning procedure?

When dental disease is already present, tooth brushing cannot reverse the process. A complete dental assessment and treatment procedure is needed to scale away the tartar, clean below the gum line, take x-rays of the tooth roots, and possibly extract any badly damaged teeth. We offer free dental assessment appointments to answer all your questions and give you an estimate of the cost for the procedure.

Meal Feeding Your Pet

One of the best ways to control your pet’s calorie intake and monitor their nutrition is to offer them measured meals. Meal feeding lets you know exactly how much your pet eating and provides them with a daily routine. It can also help fight obesity. Contrary to popular belief most pets do not know how to regulate their own food intake, and many animals can eat out of boredom if their food is accessible. Meal feeding can be especially helpful if you have more than one pet or pets of varying body conditions.
