The Importance of Cat Dental Care

Dental care is vital to the overall health of any cat. Dental disease can lead to heart, liver, and kidney health issues and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue.

Benefits of Pet Dental Care:

  • Preventative Health: Regular cleanings and exams can prevent serious dental issues and potential health problems.
  • Pain Relief: Dental pain can impact your cat’s quality of life. Proper care can alleviate discomfort.
  • Improved Overall Health: Healthy teeth and gums contribute to your cat’s overall well-being and longevity.

Our Pet Dental Services

  • Tooth Extractions: When necessary, we perform extractions with care and precision to alleviate pain and prevent infection.

How to Tell When Your Cat Needs Dental Care

Here are some signs to watch for:

  • Bad Breath: If your cat’s breath consistently smells foul, it could be a sign of dental disease.
  • Difficulty Eating: If your cat avoids hard food or shows signs of discomfort while eating, it may be due to dental pain.
  • Red or Bleeding Gums: Healthy gums should be pink, not red or swollen. Bleeding when your cat chews or brushes their teeth is also a concern.
  • Visible Tartar or Discoloration: Tartar appears as a brownish-yellow buildup on the teeth. Discoloration can indicate decay.
  • Excessive Drooling: If your cat is drooling more than usual, it could be a sign of dental issues.
  • Behavioral Changes: Cats in pain may become irritable, withdrawn, or less playful.
