Symptoms to watch out for
Sometimes, having white teeth does not indicate your cat has healthy teeth. You also need to watch out for the following symptoms:
- Smelly breath
- Inflamed or bleeding gums
- Increased drooling
- Loose teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Facial swelling
- Decreased appetite
Any of these symptoms could indicate an underlying dental condition, like oral infections or gingivitis.
Reach out to your vet as soon as you notice unusual symptoms in your cat.
Dental care beyond brushing
Besides making teeth brushing a regular part of your cat’s routine, there are additional steps you can include in your dental routine to help keep your cat’s teeth and gums clean and healthy.
- Dental chews:
Treats designed to clean teeth as your dog enjoys a good gnaw.
- Water additives:
Designed to supplement other dental remedies and freshen breath.
Just like us, keeping up with regular dental check-ups is key to maintaining good oral health. Book an appointment for a dental check-up and find out if your clinic offers the Best for Pet wellness plan to receive a $250 discount on dental cleaning.
