Cat Dental Care
Most cats are predators by nature so their teeth are designed to grab prey, kill it and tear off pieces small enough to swallow. Cats teeth are not set up to grind or gnaw on things. Our spoiled domestic cats no longer need to hunt food because we supply it in tiny bite-sized morsels that require no chewing. What we cannot guarantee is that most cats will not accumulate plaque on their teeth as they get older. Cats that eat 100% wet food generally will need some dental care earlier than cats who have a combination diet of dry and wet food. Cats eating 100% dry food still get significant plaque buildup because they often do not chew their food fully to break off any plaque buildup.
