Treat Your Cats to Healthy Teeth during #CatDentalMonth PDF Print E-mail

If you’re anything like me, you hate going to the dentist. I’m not sure where my deep-rooted (pardon the pun) fear originated, but I’ve somehow transferred my dental nightmares onto my pets. Since February is #PetDentalHealth month, we teamed up with PetSmart® to discuss dental care for cats.

As an adult, I know the best way to avoid the dentist is to avoid any dental problems. That means maintenance - for me and my pets. We do this through regular brushing and (more easily) through treats and chews (low-calorie, of course!).

In the wild, cats naturally cleanse their teeth and prevent tooth decay by ripping and slicing helps to naturally keep teeth clean. But in this day and age, it’s rare that a cat hunts more than catnip toys.

As you know, we work very hard to bring you the latest updates on anything that could impact your pet's health, particularly when it comes to foods.

A cat's digestive system is very complex. They lack specific enzymes to properly process foods that you and I would find easy to digest. Cats are obligate carnivores and must receive a percentage of protein in their diet every day. In fact, many cats do incredibly well on a raw diet because of this difference.

Recently, VetMedic asked us to help us send this informative graphic out to you and we thought it was a great idea for all of our readers to have this pinned to their refrigerator! Read on for a fun and informative info-graphic that clearly shows what types of "people food" and "table scraps" are safe for your cats, and which ones you should avoid completely!

We also take a moment to explain how to choose a bone that your cat can gnaw on during the day. As you know, gnawing promotes healthy teeth and gums (particularly important during Pet Dental Month!

Please share. That's how we get information out and how we can educate others about safe foods for cats.

There is finally a new product on the way to market that is truly revolutionary. I think when you see what this product does, you'll be as excited as I am to have one in your home.

For years, litterboxes have been the bane of a cat owner's existence. Destroying litterbox odors, eliminating eggs from worms and parasites, and eliminating germs and bacteria are the critical areas that technology has not been able to improve on.

Until now. Inventor and long-time cat-owner Stewart Lovenvirth, has developed a revolutionary cat litter box, titled LitterZap, which has been proven to be safe, sanitary and disease-free. The model utilizes powerful bursts of UV-C light to eradicate bacteria lurking in and around your pets litter box. Here are the highlights:

  • Eliminates flea, tick and lice eggs.
  • Eliminates hookworm, roundworm and other creepy crawlies.
  • Eliminates germs, viruses, bacteria, parasites and reduces odor.
  • Increases life of litter by 25-30%.

The spookiest night of the year for pets is upon us and that means we need to take a few extra precautions for our four-legged family members. From tricks and treats to deadly decorations and dangerous howl-o-ween noises, there are plenty of potential problems that we need to closely monitor.

Cats Stay Indoors

First and foremost, you pets (especially your cats) should stay indoors this night (and every night, but we can talk about that later). Just make it a focused priority to keep your pets in a controlled environment during the nights of October 30-November 1.
