Dr. Greenway demonstrates how to brush a cat’s teeth including techniques to try to make it more manageable for both you and your pet. Topics covered in this video include dental disease, tooth decay, enzymatic toothpaste, anti-bacterial, daily brushing, neck lesions, cavity, gingivitis, when to perform a dental cleaning, general anesthesia, blood work, the heart, scaling, polishing, prophy, tooth assessment, dental X-rays, oral infections and tooth decay.
DISCLAIMER: Dr. Greenway references the use of toothpaste but does not specify the type that should be used. DO NOT use human toothpaste as the the fluoride is toxic to cats and dogs. Instead we recommend an enzymatic toothpaste with a VOHC (Veterinary Oral Health Council) seal as they have been rigorously tested and proven to be effective.
