Your Thorough Guide To Hill's Prescription Diet t/d Dental Care Dry Cat Food

What Is Hill's Prescription Diet t/d Dental Care Dry Cat Food?

Hill's Prescription Diet series is a range of specialty pet foods that meet clinical requirements needed by vets during treatments for various disorders. This cat food is a clinically formulated diet that caters to the many nutritional needs that dogs and cats have during illnesses and diseases.

Hill's Prescription Diet t/d Dental Care Chicken Flavor Dry Cat Food is targeted towards cats who have dental issues. Dental issues in cats can have far-reaching effects on their bodies. Because cats have specific and complicated nutritional needs, it is recommended that you should give your cats vet-formulated diets that meet all their dietary requirements.

What Dental Issues Can My Cat Develop?

Cats can develop a range of dental issues, just like you can. Oral health is often overlooked in house cats, but it can severely impact their overall health. Most dental problems in cats develop because plaque is accumulated above the gums. This plaque is laden with a host of bacteria.

These bacteria can not only infect the gums, but it can also travel from the mouth to other parts of your cat. Any infections in the mouth can spread to become systemic infections. The most common dental problems that cats get are periodontitis, gingivitis, and tooth resorption.

Periodontitis often starts as gingivitis but becomes periodontitis as it progresses and becomes worse. Both of these diseases are caused by plaque building up on the teeth and then becoming infected as it rots. Tooth resorption is a dental disease where the teeth rot and develop lesions.

What Are Some Signs of Dental Disease in Cats?

One of the most obvious signs of dental disease is bad breath. If your cat's breath is terrible, you should check their teeth. Plaque or tartar is often visible as a discolored layer on the teeth. You could also notice that your cat has difficulty eating and is pawing at their mouth area a lot.

Your cat's teeth can also fall out, and you might notice that they are drooling. If you check their mouth, you can even notice swollen, red, or bleeding gums as well. Finally, your cat can experience weight loss because they have difficulty eating. If you see any of these signs in your cat, it's time for a visit to the vet!
