Cole and Marmalade’s human dad Chris is here with some good advice!
He says: “When was the last time you brushed your cat’s teeth? … The thought of brushing your cat’s teeth probably hasn’t even crossed your mind, but just like us humans, cats also require dental care to stay healthy. If you take things slowly, give them lots of praise and try and make it a positive experience, with time brushing your cat’s teeth will become easier.”
You may be reading this and thinking “my cat would never let me do this!”.
But, like I said, anything is better than nothing and with patience you can get into a routine…
This will help prevent dental disease and add years to your cat’s life! *Purrlease take your cat/s for a check up and consult your vet before starting any dental care routine, GOOD LUCK.”
Of course, as well as cleaning your beloved kitty’s teeth you can also try letting them have cat dental treats which are a great way of getting some dental care going with your cat without having to try and get their teeth cleaned the way Chris does!
