How to Brush Your Cat’s Teeth

Taking care of your cat requires more than just feeding him and scheduling regular visits to your veterinary practice. There are many day-to-day tasks cat owners must do in order to guarantee their pets’ best health, such as brushing their teeth.

As you will learn in this video, you must procure a special cat toothbrush that you can wear on your finger. This toothbrush allows you to easily remove buildup from your cat’s teeth. You must also use a special tooth polish that you can get from your vet. The key to making this an easy process for you and your cat is to slowly introduce him to it. Start out by brushing just one or two of his teeth. Also make sure to put him at ease by petting him before and during the cleaning so he has a positive association with brushing his teeth.
