Cats are like humans in some aspects of their lives, including oral health. Understand that felines experience issues with their mouth like how humans are at risk of developing dental problems. But note that there are a few differences between what humans experience and what cats develop.
A healthy cat has a mouth with a good odour; simply put, it does not smell. But when your cat has dental diseases, she may be releasing an unpleasant smell from her mouth. Why? How does this happen? The probable causes of a bad mouth odour in felines are as follows:
- Accumulation of tartar and plaques on teeth
- Inflamed gums and their separation from their underlying parts
- Loose teeth
- Rotting of food lodged in gum pockets
- Bacterial infection
- Trauma to oral tissues
- Oral tumour
- Other medical conditions that may cause a foul odour to your cat’s mouth are diabetes mellitus, liver disease, intestinal blockage, and kidney disease.
Any sign of a dental problem exhibited by your pet should warrant a visit to your animal hospital Fort Collins, CO.
