Can I really brush my cat's teeth at home?

Home Dental Care for Cats

Yes, you can brush your cat's teeth at home. You can find special brushes that fit over your finger to gently brush your cat's teeth. There is also special toothpaste made for cats.

Dental care for cats may make sense, but it will take some time for your cat to warm up to the procedure. Time and patience are key to your cat's acceptance of the brush and toothpaste. Be gentle, and don't expect your pet to get used to the brush overnight. If your cat refuses to allow you to brush her teeth, you'll need to take her to your veterinarian for regular dental care, in addition to other health check-ups.
