dental care

Dental care is as important to your cat's health as it is to you. Besides the problems mentioned above, your cat can also get infections that affect the heart and other organs from having bad teeth. They can also get a horrible mouth disease called stomitis (My cat's had it) that can last for months, and in some cases, doesn't go away until all of your kitty's teeth are pulled.

Science Diet is only one step above grocery store food. Vets sell it to make money. Period. If your cat's food isn't fit for human consumption, you don't want your cat eating it either.

Also, test after test have shown that dry food is no better for the cats' teeth than wet food. Most cat specialist suggest giving kitty both.

Just a soft piece of cloth wrapped around your little finger dipped in water and rubbed over the teeth twice a week is generally all kitty needs to keep their teeth and breath reasonably clean--if they will let you do it.

If you start out cleaning their teeth regularly as kittens, it is a lot easier and also makes it easier to give them medications later.
