Yes! Home dental care is one of the best ways to help keep your cat's teeth and gums healthy. Use a moistened, soft, pet toothbrush or child's toothbrush, finger toothbrush, gauze around a finger or a cotton swab. Be sure to use pet toothpaste - no human toothpaste, baking soda or salt.

Use gentle brushing motions to clean the teeth and gums, as you would your own. Most cats will not allow you to brush the inside surface of the teeth, but at least clean the outside (cheek) surfaces. Be sure to reach the back upper molars and canines. These teeth tend to quickly build up tartar. Try to brush your cat's teeth as often as possible - every day is ideal.
