Dental Care for your Cat

One of the most commonly overlooked areas of health care is dental care for your cat. The American Veterinary Dental Society reports that 70 % of cats show signs of oral disease by age three. Poor dental care for your cat can also lead to more serious health problems including heart, lung and kidney disease. Dental procedures are routinely performed in veterinary practices. Many veterinarians have taken additional dental training in order to better serve their pet clients. Veterinary dental specialists can be consulted if more serious issues are diagnosed.

In dental care for your cat, your veterinarian will look for developmental anomalies, amount of plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth, periodontal disease and oral tumors during routine annual examinations. If needed, dental cleanings will be conducted when the cat is under a short-lasting anesthetic to remove plaque and tartar especially below the gum line.
