Dog and Cat Dental Care

Whether you have a dog or a cat, it's important to take care of your pet's teeth. At-home dog dental care is a great way to reduce the risk of oral health issues like gingivitis. By brushing your dog's teeth daily with dog toothpaste, you can remove plaque before it has the chance to turn into tartar. Regular brushing is also an essential part of cat dental care. In the wild, cats can clean their teeth by chewing on bones, but domestic cats need help keeping their teeth clean.

Fluoride toothpaste is dangerous for cats, which is why it's important to use a product designed for pets. In addition to dental care at home, you should work with a veterinarian to keep your pet's teeth healthy. Yearly dental cleanings can help prevent tooth decay. Don't be afraid to ask your vet questions if you need help or advice.

Signs of Poor Oral Health In Pets

Cat and dog dental issues can lead to serious health problems, which is why you should keep an eye on your pet's teeth. If you see any of these symptoms, you should make an appointment with your veterinarian as soon as possible:

  • Bad breath
  • Discolored teeth
  • Red, inflamed or bleeding gums
  • Lumps in or around the mouth
  • Difficulty chewing or loss of appetite
