Kitten Care- Teeth! TM
*Animals need dental care just like we do. Their teeth get tartar build- up, gingivitis- (parasites can sometimes cause this), cavities, and other dental problems. Their teeth need regular care. Without regular care your pet will begin to decline in health due to bacteria, viruses, and the pain they feel may make them take in less nutrition.
*Pet insurance will pay for most of this needed care.
*A C.E.T. kit can be purchased from your vet or on-line. The C.E.T. kit includes a two-ended toothbrush, and toothpaste. The toothpatse comes in chicken and tuna flavors.
*An oral enzyme rinse can be purchased seperately- this ads to your cats dental health. It is recommended that teeth should be cleaned once a year. Your vet will put your kittie to sleep and clean the teeth.
*Greenies are a treat that cleans teeth in between brushings. Keeping kitty's teeth clean will help keep your pet healthy.
*In order to brush your cats teeth you will need a large bath towel, nail clippers, toothpaste, toothbrush, and oral rinse.
*Step 1 is to make sure the kitties nails are clipped. (see Cat Nails) This will prtect you in case of an exscaping cat! :)
*Step 2 wrap your cat like a baby in the towel. Gently hold the kitties mouth closed. Brush one side and then the other. Make sure to get those hard to reach back teeth. You do not need to spend to much time on the inside of the ctas teeth.
*Step 3 is to keep holding the jaw closed while brushing the front fangs and small front teeth.
*Step 4: use the oral rinse by squirting a littel on each side and the front teeth.
*You have now just done what some may say is rediculous however, their cat will not be as healthy as yours nor have such a great smelling breath!!!
