Are you repulsed by your cat's bad breath?

Basic care - Are you repulsed by your cat's bad breath?

Bad breath is often a sign of mouth problems. Food is not the only factor contributing to your pet's health, dental hygiene also plays a very important role.

To avoid tartar build-up on your cat's teeth, you must get into the habit of brushing its teeth at a young age. Tartar is a yellow or brown deposit on the teeth. It is the accumulation of a lot of bacteria and small bits of food; in the long run, the tooth will be completely covered with tartar. Tartar can even infiltrate under the gum which creates a space between the gum and the tooth; the tooth then becomes less solid since its attachment is reduced. With time it becomes loose and can even fall.

To avoid bad breath, tartar build-up, gingivitis, loose and falling teeth, daily brushing is a must.

It is possible to heal a mouth that has problems! If your cat already has tartar build-up, red gums or bad breath, scaling will get rid of the tartar and clean out accumulated bacteria from under the gums. This way, your cat will enjoy a renewed well-being thanks to a clean mouth.

Afterward, it will be easier for you to keep your cat's mouth clean by brushing its teeth.
