The Importance of Dental Care for Cats: Dental care isn't just about maintaining a clean appearance; it's an essential aspect of your cat's overall health. Regular dental maintenance can help prevent:
Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease: These common issues can lead to inflamed gums, pain, and tooth loss if untreated, affecting your cat's well-being and comfort.
Feline Tooth Resorption: This condition, unique to cats, involves the gradual loss of tooth structure. It can be painful and cause discomfort during eating.
Bad Breath: Persistent bad breath may indicate underlying dental issues, which can be resolved through professional dental cleanings.
Kidney disease: There has been shown that there may be a link between dental disease in cats and kidney disease in cats.
