Dental Care for Cats

Good dental health begins with the proper diet as discussed above
Gold standard care is brushing your cats teeth

Dental Care for Cats

Step 1:
Start by dipping a finger in tuna water or warm water. Rub this finger gently over your pet's gums and one or two teeth. Repeat until your pet seems fairly comfortable with this activity.


Step 2:
Gradually, introduce a gauze-covered finger and gently scrub the teeth with a circular motion.

Step 3:
Then, you can begin to use a toothbrush, either an ultra-soft model designed for people (baby tooth-brushes work well for cats) or a special pet tooth-brush or finger brush, which is a rubber finger covering with a small brush built in at its tip.


Step 4:
Finally, once your pet is used to brushing, introduce the use of pet toothpaste in liquid or paste form. Most of these contain chlorhexidine or stannous fluoride - ask your veterinary surgeon for their recommendations. Don't use human toothpaste, as it can upset your pet's stomach. Your vet may also advise the use of an antiseptic spray or rinse after brushing.
