Feline dental disease symptoms and prevention tips

What are the signs of cat dental disease?

The poor cat, Misha, in this video, had diseased gums and teeth. To know if this is this happening in your cat, keep an eye out for the following:

  • Difficulty eating
  • Swelling in face or gums
  • Presence of pus
  • Plaque build-up
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Drooling

What’s the best way to prevent cat dental disease?

The best way to prevent dental disease in your cat, and to also prevent painful and costly teeth extractions, is to regularly clean your cat's teeth at home. Humans clean their teeth every day, and pets should as well. Best to start early when they're kittens, so they get used to it. It’s just as Dr Kate always says: “Prevention is better than cure”. There are a number of at home cat teeth cleaning products available in Bondi Pet store that can help keep your cat healthy and happy, without needing a trip to the vet.

When should I see a vet?

If you are regularly cleaning your cat's teeth but symptoms of dental disease are still persisting, then it may be time to speak to a Vet. Our Bondi Vets can offer personalised advice to get your cat back to perfect health.
