My 5 year old cat has some tartar and plaque and my vet has suggested I have his teeth cleaned. I have had cats my whole life and I've never had any of their teeth teeth cleaned. I am worried about the anesthesia with this particular cat because he has a low immune system. Can you give me some pros and cons regarding this procedure?
Gum disease can lead to loss of teeth, heart disease, bad breath, infections in the mouth, loss of appetite etc.. Pets should have their teeth cleaned periodically in order to protect their health. If your pets immune system is weak then it is even more important to keep the teeth clean. vetcare
