Tulsa Cats Need Good Oral Health Too

tulsa cat dental careAccording to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of cats age three and older have dental disease.  However, few pet owners in Tulsa acknowledge the importance and take action.  Dental care in cats is just as important as it is for people.

Like humans, dental disease in cats, if left unchecked, can lead to life threatening conditions. Immediate problems include loose teeth, bleeding gums and bad breath. Over time dental disease can cause infections that then travel into the bloodstream and throughout the entire body infecting and damaging the heart, liver and kidneys. Cats with dental disease may drool, have trouble eating, and suffer mouth pain all the time.

Cats can’t always let us know when they have a medical problem.  Many times cats are brought to a vet for dental care only when infection is evident or when they have noticeable mouth pain.
