Feeding Cats with No Teeth
Does your cat have incredibly bad breath that just doesn’t go away? If so, call your vet to schedule a dental exam. Your cat could have infected, rotten, or decayed teeth. Your vet will need to remove these teeth to prevent infection and to keep your cat healthy. Feeding a cat without teeth may be a bit of a challenge so here are some tips. First, you should feed a wet or canned food only if it’s possible. You may need to add a little water or low sodium broth to help make the food even softer. If you feed hard food, pour hot water over it and allow it to sit so it becomes like a mash. You can also soften the dry food with a low sodium broth. Make sure you talk to your animal hospital Rochester NY to learn more ways to help feed a cat with no teeth.
