Just what my cat needs

I learned the hard way that, contrary to conventional wisdom, dry food does very little to scrape plaque from cat's teeth. At just 4 years old, my cat developed gingivitis and such severe tooth decay that one of her back teeth had to be extracted. I realized that in order to prevent another expensive dental procedure, I had to do more than feed my cat a few tartar control treats a day. So, after the cat's gums healed, I purchased the Petrodex Dental Kit. My cat loves the malt flavor of the toothpaste. I let her lick it off my finger once a day for a week, so she would have a positive experience with the toothpaste. Then I gently pulled her lips open and dabbed the toothpaste onto her canine, every day for a week. Finally I started brushing her teeth. If I catch her when she's relaxed, I can brush most of her teeth before she loses patience and moves to another spot. Fortunately, only the outside of the cat's teeth need to be brushed.
This seems to be a very good product. The toothbrush is a good size for fitting inside a cat's mouth. The real test will be taking the cat to the vet for her next dental exam, to see how clean her teeth really are.
Do your cat a favor and start brushing his teeth at least once a week. Your cat may be prone to tooth decay and gum disease. If your cat has chronic halitosis (bad breath), consider taking him to the vet, and definitely buy some cat toothpaste.
Pros: taste, cleans teeth, freshens breath

I bought this not knowing how easy it would be to brush my kitten's teeth. She's a very picky cat. She actually loves the taste, and she doesn't even mind having her teeth brushed with this! I purchased the quadbrush first thinking it was an awesome idea, but this toothbrush actually works a lot better and its small enough that you don't have to fight it into her mouth. Love it.
Pros: cleans teeth, taste, freshens breath

My cats love this! The tooth paste will probably last for a month (one cat) and usually my cats will lick and then start to bite. A+! Buy this!
Pros: cat loves it, works, easy

Humans aren't the only ones who can get tooth decay.
Animals can get tooth decay too and, if untreated, can lead to worse problems and expensive vet bills!
Starting a dental routine at a young age is recommended, but it can be accomplished at any age with time, gentleness, patience, tolerance, persistance, yummy dental treats, and praise.
This kit has a great tiny toothbrush. But my cats don't like the cat malt-flavor toothpaste. So I got the dog poultry-flavor toothpaste instead- and they love it! :) It's like a treat and a plaque-fighter in one for them. :)

I bought this a few days ago for my little Twinkie. At first he was hesitant, but as soon as I started brushing his teeth...he relaxed and let me. He enjoyed it and will let me look at his teeth at any time. Everyone should try this with their cat!
