Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers,
As you may already know, we’re starting to have issues with Beau eating. The little bugger is going to be 4 and he’s already developing dental problems! (Not surprising as most cats start developing dental issues at the age of 3.) Thing is, Beau has always had good teeth until he was switched onto an all wet diet. Now, I’m not going to start preaching which diet is better, but since Beau has been battling urinary tract infections since we got him and after his PU Surgery we don’t want to jinx anything.
Above is the picture I could get of Beau’s teeth. I’m sorry that it’s fairly dark and that I couldn’t open Beau’s mouth very far, but you can clearly tell that there is a whole lot of plaque build-up. We’re already looking into different products we can use such as Nylabone’s Toothpaste & Toothbrush and a product called Dentatreat by Wysong. I’m going to be looking into more such as Tropiclean and Bluestem.
I’m a bit embarrassed that I haven’t been checking Beau’s teeth as often as I used to, but this “not eating” thing is driving me a bit mental. He’s refusing all wet food and he’s eating a bit of kibble. I really need to get down to this as soon as possible, and sadly the vet said cleaning may have to wait a few weeks just to make sure it’s safe for him (apparently they can only do slow blood tests at the facility.)
So here’s where I ask you… what do you do for your pets? What products can you recommend for me? I’m actually interested in trying out a few and seeing how they compare and hopefully get to show you the progress and if they work.
