My vet told me that my cat has gingivitis. Would it be bad to switch to wet food then? One of the nurse's told me yes because the wet food would stay up in her gums and make it worse. Also what can i do to stop or make the gingivitis better?

It would be fine to switch to wet food. It has been established that dry food does not cause significantly less tartar than wet food.
The best way to combat ginigivitis is to brush your cat's teeth. That prevents more tartar from building up. I also use a wax called ProVseal once a week to coat the teeth, but I'm not sure whether it works or not :oops: . If your cat already has a large build up of tartar (just see if there is a lot of brown/yellow buildup on the back teeth), then you will need to get her teeth professionally cleaned.
