DENTAL TIP: Feline dental health is one of the most overlooked areas in small animal medicine. Cats suffer from some of the same dental problems as dogs such as fractured teeth, gingivitis, and oral masses. They also suffer from tooth resportion which can be extremely painful. If you notice your cat salivating excessively, bleeding from the mouth, having difficulty eating, losing weight, or bad breath, you cat may be suffering from dental disease. To check for pain, gently run a Q-tip along the gumline of all the teeth. If you cat's lower jaw spasms, this is an indication of pain and should be evaluated by your veterinarian.
