Bad Breath In Pet Cats
Bad breath in cats is an early sign of dental disease. Also called ‘halitosis’, bad breath can also be a symptom of other health issues that can be potentially serious. In addition to tooth and gum problems, foul-smelling breath may also be caused by mouth cancer, wounds int he mouth, lung disease, and severe kidney problems.
If your cat’s bad breath does not seem to go away even if you have brushed his teeth several times, it is a good idea to make an appointment with your Somerville, MA veterinarian. There is a need to identify the underlying cause so it can be given proper attention and treatment sooner rather than later. The treatment regimen is aimed at addressing the potential cause, teeth cleaning or scraping under the gumline, and other forms of treatment that are deemed necessary. Click here.
