Cleaning cats’ teeth
Cats’ teeth may not be like ours, but they still require care and attention in order to help keep them healthy. Just like human teeth, cats’ teeth accumulate plaque over time. If this is left unmonitored, this will harden to form tartar. Over time a build-up of tartar can lead to more serious dental conditions such as gingivitis, which can ultimately lead to tooth loss. This is why cleaning cats’ teeth regularly is so important.

Neutering removes the testes in males and spaying removes the ovaries and the womb in females.
