You don’t have to wait until February to start brushing your cat’s teeth. A vital part of your responsibility as a pet owner is to be aware of cleaning your pet’s teeth at all times.
You may be wondering why February. The American Veterinary Medical Association or AVMA and the American Veterinary Dental Association or AVDS meet every February to give a different meaning to this month. Yes, it is still about love. But now it is the love of pets and their teeth.
But these groups know how important this is for pets and their owners. In fact, they want everyone who looks after their pets to consider each month their pet dental health month.
Are you warned?
Did you know that about 85 percent of elderly cats have dental disease? Did you know that this is one of the most common causes of health problems in cats? And did you know that if you do not pay attention to these dental diseases, more problems may arise?
If not treated properly, these conditions can cause harmful elements such as bacteria from the dental cavity to spread throughout the bloodstream. As a result, this will infect other important organs that will cause more problems that may ultimately end in the death of your pet.
How to take care of your teeth
As a pet owner, it is your responsibility to regularly clean your cat treats for teeth. This can be difficult if you think about it. But you can use the help of others to open your cat’s mouth while completing the mission.
Your friend may not like this process at first. But this is in your best interest. For this reason, both must adapt. You can try different flavor toothpastes to make the experience more enjoyable for you and your cat.
You should also make a routine visit to the veterinarian regarding your pet’s dental care. Apart from this, you should check your cat’s teeth and gums every day to see if they are clean. If you like, you can also floss your cat’s teeth.
