Importance of dental health for your catby Alex Weber, DVM on 01/07/14
A very underrated aspect of your cat's health is it's teeth. At our cat hospital in Tampa FL, our veterinarians see oral disease almost on a daily basis. Since your cat doesn't brush it's teeth everyday, it is up to you and your veterinarian to keep an eye out for any dental problems. Unfortunately, many small problems can go undetected until they are larger and harder to handle. This is why having a yearly exam is extremely important. Your veterinarian will look at the teeth and determine if a cleaning, or any other treatments to maintain proper oral health, are needed.
