Like us, cats need daily dental care to help decrease plaque and tartar accumulation. Teaching your cat to accept the brushing of his teeth will take some training, but it will be relatively easy once accustomed to the process. Daily brushing is most beneficial and will help to establish a routine. Brushing twice a week is helpful if your schedule cannot accommodate daily brushing.
It is best to teach your cat to accept brushing while he or she is still a kitten. If you have an older cat, the process may take a little longer but it’s worth the effort.
