Did you know that brushing your cat's teeth is just as important as brushing your own? According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3. Brushing your cat's teeth is easier if you follow this step-by-step guide.

Poor oral health often begins with a buildup of sticky plaque that, if not removed, hardens to form tartar. This can impact the health of your cat's teeth and gums.

Signs of a Problem:

  • Bad breath
  • Yellow or brown buildup on teeth  

Always consult your veterinarian if you have questions about your cat's health.
