This is a very quick feline health tip. To regularly check your cat’s teeth and gums run a cotton bud along the gum line (the point where gums meet teeth) . If you see blood on the cotton bud or your cat shows signs of discomfort and pain make an appointment for your vet to provide a checkup.
That’s it. I think it is a great tip because it can be done. It is very hard to check a cat’s teeth visually and properly because the just resist. But it is possible to use a cotton bud as described without meeting insurmountable feline resistance.
Beyond that it is best that a vet deals with the problem. Poor oral health is very common in elderly domestic cats. It is often overlooked. It can be quite serious for cats.
