Feeding your cat for good DENTAL HEALTH

Periodontal disease is extremely common in cats, but the good news is that a healthy diet can help prevent it.

Periodontal disease is one of the most prevalent diseases in cats. It affects about 70% of cats over two years of age, and 85% of cats over five! Yet despite how incredibly common it is, this condition is actually preventable, and diet is a key factor.

Periodontal disease starts when food remnants and bacteria accumulate, forming sticky plaque around the gum line. That plaque subsequently hardens into tartar. Other than bad breath, there aren’t many obvious early signs of periodontal disease, so the problem is too often left untreated. As a result, far more serious health conditions arise, including painful inflammation, tooth loss, and damage to the heart, liver and kidneys as the inflammation and bacteria gain access to the bloodstream through the diseased gingiva.
