It is important that cats get dentals too. Cats can get gum disease. In fact, it’s one of the most common diseases in cats today.
- Food particles and bacteria are allowed to stay along the gum line.
- This later turns into plaque.
- Gum irritation begins.
- This leads to a condition called gingivitis.
- If left untreated, your cat can get periodontal disease.
You can tell if your cat has gingivitis by a reddening of gums along the the teeth. Periodontal disease can soon follow if the gingivitis is not treated.
Periodontal disease can start in one area of your cat’s mouth and spread to other areas if nothing is done about it. There are different stages of periodontal disease and it is treatable.
Periodontal disease can affect any cat of any age. Arranging for your cat to get a good dental cleaning at our clinic is a great way to prevent any form of gum disease.
Any form of dental illness or disease can lead to other health issues in your cat’s body. Getting your cat a dental cleaning AT LEAST once a year is not only a preventative of certain mouth-related health issues, it will also prevent other issues that directly stem from you cat having a dental illness.
