Brushing & Food: Keys to Maintaining Your Cat's Oral Health

Did you know that brushing your cat's teeth is just as important as brushing your own? According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3.

Poor oral health often begins with a build-up of sticky plaque that, if not removed, hardens to form tartar. This can impact the health of your cat's teeth and gums.

Signs of a Problem:

  • Bad breath
  • Yellow or brown build-up on teeth

Always consult your veterinarian if you have questions about your cat's health.
