Signs Your Cat Needs a Professional Dental Cleaning

You can tell when your cat's teeth need cleaned professionally by a veterinarian if he or she exhibits any of the following signs:

-Bleeding and/or red gums

-It appears to be difficult for your kitty to eat crunchy or hard food (like dry cat food)

-Yellow staining on the gum line

-Bad breath

-Tartar on the back teeth, which looks yellowish-brown

In my next post, I will review how you can acclimate your cat to regular teeth brushing at home.
