For both kittens and cats, dental care is an important part of their healthcare. If they have sore gums, broken or damaged teeth or dental disease, this can be uncomfortable for them and costly for you as the owner!
Boundary Vets in Abingdon offer dental care services for cats and kittens, giving you peace of mind that your pet is in the best health at all times. Dental checks are performed as part of your general consultation.
Preventing Cat Dental Disease in Abingdon
Felines are very good at hiding signs of distress from dental issues. Even with severe dental disease, they can continue to eat, displaying only subtle signs of any problems. This means it is vital to keep an eye on your cats’ behaviour. If you notice anything concerning whilst they eat, contact Boundary Vets, Abingdon today.
Catching dental disease early can reduce the number of required extractions.
Signs of dental disease in your kitten or cat can include:
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Tartar build up on their teeth
- Inflamed gums
- Bleeding from their gums
- Slowness or reluctance to eat
- Dropping food whilst trying to eat
- Swelling around the mouth area
- Chewing to the one side of their mouth.
Ensuring Healthy Teeth for Your Cat or Kitten
Ensuring healthy teeth for your kitten and cat is possible at home. You can brush your cat or kittens teeth, training them in this from a kitten and making it a part of their regular routine. If you need help and support on brushing your cats’ teeth, please ask at Boundary Vets today. We can guide and support you in training your cat or kitten.
It is also recommended that you feed your cat dry food as part of their diet, not just wet food. Dry food is a way to help reduce the build up of tartar on your kitten or cats teeth as they eat. This does not mean feed them only dry food, but ensure they have access to dry food as well as wet food.
