The importance of a good oral and dental hygiene for humans is well known! Sadly, it is common that we pay less attention to our cat’s mouth.
And that’s a mistake.
Indeed, putting in place a good oral and dental hygiene for your furred friend slows the creation of dental plaque. This plaque, qui naturally clings to the teeth’s enamel is a mix of saliva, aliments and bacteria. With time it mineralizes and becomes scale.
By regularly brushing your cat’s teeth, you avoid bad breath but also and more importantly infections, gingivitis and other oral illnesses such as the periodontal. The latter can lead to teeth loss because of the weakening of the supporting tissues and bones.
Be careful: it is important to put a routine in place with your cat from a very young age!
