It’s the #1 Cause of Tooth Loss In Cats, & 50-75% of Cats Suffer From This Dental Problem

We’re all familiar with tooth decay, when bacteria destroy the tooth’s enamel but tooth resorption is degenerative, starting at the gum line and eventually destroying the tooth’s structure. ┬áHere are some symptoms of tooth resorption:

  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Head shaking or tilting of head
  • Decreased grooming
  • Not wanting to be touched around head

If your cat is exhibiting these symptoms, make an appointment with his vet from a check-up.
