Bad Breath in Cats
Whether we like to admit it or not, bad breath can be a common problem in cats. If your cat has really bad breath, give your vet a call and schedule a checkup. Bad breath is sometimes a first time symptom of gum disease or other health problems. For instance, different things can cause bad breath. If your cat eats rotten food then her breath can smell. If your cat has rotting teeth or infection in her teeth or gums then her breath could smell bad. Bad breath could also be genetic and not really the result of anything unhealthy in your cat. It’s important to have your vet examine your cat’s teeth and gums to determine the cause of the bad breath and how to treat it. Some cats may need a professional dental cleaning while other cats may simply need a diet change. Talk with your veterinarian Webster, NY to learn more.
