Your cat may be able to wash, but for his teeth, that’s another story. It is essential for one’s general health to take care of one’s oral health because cats are particularly exposed to dental problems: more than two-thirds of cats suffer from gingivitis before the age of two. Plaque and tartar deposits build up on your cat’s teeth and, if left untreated, can lead to more serious problems.
If you notice a brownish-yellow deposit on your cat’s teeth, bad breath, or difficulty feeding, this may be a sign of a dental problem or gingivitis. Another sign of gingivitis is the presence of a red border along the gingiva. Take your cat to the vet if you notice any of these symptoms.
Two simple things can help keep your cat’s teeth in perfect condition without having to brush them every day: regular vet checks (at least twice a year) and a special food that acts like a toothbrush, such as Hill’s ™ Vet Essentials Young Adult and Mature Adult Cat Products. The unique shape of the kibble has been specially designed to clean the teeth of cats deep down to the gum.
Here is its mechanism of action: The kibble wraps the tooth when the cat crunches and cleans the tooth to the gum before dividing to take off all the plaque. The teeth of your cat remain white and without plaque … for a well-being assured! Bright, clean teeth make cats happy and serene.
Vet Essentials cat food is not only good for your pet’s four-legged teeth, but it also promotes lean muscle mass and weight control. They also contain ingredients of the highest quality for a delicious taste that will appeal to all cats.
