Caring for Your Cat’s Teeth
Important Factors to Consider:
The most frequent problem we encounter in felines who come to our clinic is dental problems. Cats typically get holes in their teeth without regular dental treatment, which can later cause major problems.
Cats Won’t Show Signs
Cats are renowned for their skill at masking pain. Your cat’s pain will progressively get worse, just like the harm done by hardening plaque. Without your knowledge, your cat will “learn to live with it” and endure their suffering in silence.
Damage Happens Over Time
Your cat’s mouth constantly accumulates plaque, leading to gum irritation over time. The plaque will turn into tartar if not removed, which will worsen the condition of the bones and ligaments that support them.
Advancing Health Care
At Chicago Cat Clinic, we support both proactive and progressive health care. We are pleased to offer advice on at-home care for your cat and advise on annual dental examinations and cleanings.
What To Expect
When Your Feline Needs Dental Surgery
Before a surgical appointment, your feline undergoes a complete physical examination and routine blood work for precautionary measures. When the test results come back, we will schedule an appointment.
Before surgery, your feline will be given pre-anesthesia medication and put under general anesthesia to avoid pain or discomfort. While under anesthesia, a tube is placed into the feline’s trachea to protect its airway. IV fluids are administered for cardiovascular support, and one nurse is dedicated to monitoring your feline’s vitals the entire time.
We Are Often Asked:
Why Should I Bring My Cat In For Dental Care?
Plaque accumulates in your feline’s mouth daily, inflaming the gums and hardening into tartar. This can eventually destroy bones and ligaments that support the teeth and can ultimately lead to gum recession, abscess formation, and tooth loss.
When Should I Bring My Cat In For Dental Care?
Regular dental care is beneficial for male and female cats of all ages and health conditions. We are always here to help in emergency situations but it is best to bring in your feline for annual dental exams and cleanings.
