Brushing Teeth
Quick outline to get started brushing your cat’s teeth. As you are training your cat to getting their teeth brushed it is not necessary to use pet toothpaste due to additives in many toothpastes that can actually contribute to tooth decay. You can simply using water on the brush/gauze as it is the physical brushing that does the actual cleaning of the teeth. However, if your cat (or dog) has teeth with tartar buildup you can use their favorite food oil, such as olive oil fish oil, etc. (CAUTION: DO NOT use grape seed oil or castor oil as these are toxic to pets!) To brush with oil, simply dip the brush tip in the oil and brush on the teeth.
