IS THERE MORE TO IT THAN JUST CAT BREATH?

It is probably a lesser known fact that “cat breath” is not normal.

Halitosis (bad breath) is often the first sign of bad oral health and may indicate infection.

When plaque builds up on teeth, it hardens and turns to tartar. This in turn irritates the gums, causing gingivitis and, if left untreated, can lead to periodontal disease. This is an extremely painful condition that requires extractions to alleviate symptoms.

Unfortunately, our pets can be very good at hiding pain, so you may not notice at first.
