We adopted a cat from the humane society and he has tarter on his teeth. What is the best way to remove it? I've been able to play with his mouth for short burts, mainly to to just check the teeth, but I haven't gotten a chance to get a brush in there yet. What do you recommend? Answer Hi Teresa, Thank you for contacting me regarding your cat and his dental care. If he already has a substantial amount of tarter on his teeth, there are two routes you can take. One is to take him to the veterinarian and have his teeth cleaned. The other is to try Petzlife's Oral Care Gel. This product is a gel that you place on their teeth. It does work but the directions must be followed exactly and you can't skip applications. Just like with humans, once the tarter has built up, you can't just brush it away. Once the tarter is removed there are many things you can do to keep his teeth healthy and tartar free. The first would be being feeding good quality food. Many foods have ingredients added to them to help keep their teeth clean. Be sure to include dry kibble in his diet as well and watch him eat it. Some cats will swallow their foods whole and not chew it. Next would be brushing his teeth. This can sometimes be rather challenging with cats. Give it a try! With a little work some cats learn to enjoy the experience and not run away from it. Next, give him oral care treats! Greenies makes five different flavors of cat treats that help freshen his breath and clean his teeth. Lastly, kitty mouth wash! Ok, it's not really mouth wash but FourPaws makes a Pet Dental Care liquid that you add to his water bowl. Each time you fill up his water bowl you add a small amount of this product. Visit your local Chuck & Don's for further assistance. Hope this helps and good luck! "The Chuck" Chuck & Don's Pet Food Outlet Question Thank you for your reply. I will try the gel and treats. Are they available at most pet stores? He only gets dry cat food and I have switched him to Wellness. Has made a huge difference in his fur, he's much softer now. Oh, and I did forget to ask, what can I do to deter him from digging in my plant.  His litter box gets cleaned out so that is not the culprit, he left it alone for a long time and he has now become fasinated by it.
