Dental facts for your feline

Dental facts for your feline

Kittens have 26 teeth, while the adult feline has 30 teeth.

By age 3, felines can show signs of periodontal disease.

Just as was stated in dental facts for canines, felines benefit from hard kibble rather than wet canned foods.  The hard kibble helps naturally knock off the tarter from their teeth.

Brushing your felines teeth is recommended, but we also understand felines are much more temperamental than canines.  This will be a long time task to introduce to your feline, especially if they are older.  Some felines may never let your brush their teeth, but may let you use a washcloth and get some of their teeth.  This may take many months of repetition to get them used to a new behavior.
