Cat Health And Healthcare
Oral hygiene is not unique to humans. The dental and medical care needs of cats should be the top priority for pet parents. Cats’ oral hygiene can affect their overall health. Periodontal disease is the most common disease in cats three years of age and older. Periodontal tissue is the invisible part of the tooth-or the part hidden under the gum line. When bacteria colonize the mouth and form a plaque biofilm, dental disease in cats begins. After a period of time, this biofilm will calcify into tartar, leading to inflammation and periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is treatable in the first stage, which is why professional and home dental care is so important. It is recommended that cats receive a dental assessment every 6 to 12 months from 1 to 2 years old to prevent such dental problems.
In addition to periodontal disease, cats may also have other dental diseases, including: cat pulp cell resorption lesions (FORL), stomatitis, and tooth fractures. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, chewing with only one mouth, swelling of the face, pus from the wound, bleeding or bleeding from the mouth, sneezing, scratching the mouth with paws, grinding teeth, and discoloration of the teeth.
