Brushing Your Cat’s Teeth
Getting your pet to accept oral care will keep her free of disease and pain.
Your cat has the same risk for oral disease you do, and thereís no reason to believe she doesnít feel the same pain of sore gums and toothache. Thatís why you want to keep her teeth in good shape by brushing them. Every single day is ideal, but you can do it every other day if your cat will accept that interval better. Every three days isnít frequent enough because it takes two days for soft, sticky plaque that collects below the gum line to turn into hardened calculus. Once plaque hardens, no amount of brushing will remove it. It requires a scaling under anesthesia by your veterinarian.
