Cat Toys for Bad Breath
Dental toys are designed to gently clean your cats teeth and gums as they play and may help to improve your cat's breath.
Depending on your cat's individual needs, dental toys alone may not be sufficient preventative dental care and are not a replacement for veterinary dental treatments. Check out our Cat Dental Care Guide for more tips on teeth brushing, diets and other dental preventions. Don't be afraid to ask one of our Pet Circle Vets or your local vet if you have any concerns about your cat's dental and oral health.
FAQs about Cat Toys for Bad Breath?
What causes bad breath in cats?
Bad breath, also known as halitosis, in cats can be caused by a build up of bacteria-containing plaque on teeth. Some cats may be more prone to developing plaque and inflammation than others. However, it is a sign that your cat requires a vet check as the same plaque is also responsible for causing severe dental diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis and tooth resorption if left untreated. Bad breath can also be a clinical sign of certain viral and metabolic diseases in cats. Once your vet has given your cat's teeth a good check and ruled out other issues, maintaining good dental hygiene at home can help to prevent and minimise the recurrence of bad breath.
How do cat dental toys prevent dental disease and bad breath?
Brushing your teeth is the best way to maintain oral health, that's why we as humans brush our teeth daily! The same goes for our feline friends, however since they can't brush their teeth themselves, we can brush their teeth for them using cat-friendly toothbrushes and toothpaste. Cat dental toys are designed to mimic toothbrushing with specially designed materials that can clean the surface of your cats teeth and gums as they chew them!
