Why Do Cats Grind Their Teeth? 12 Causes of Bruxism in Cats!

The first thing that you have to do when you notice your cat grinding her teeth frequently is to open her mouth and check for any signs of a problem. There might be something stuck in her mouth. 

If you can remove the object, do so carefully.

Tooth grinding can be an indication of a dental problem that requires attention as soon as possible. It is sometimes her way of letting out the pain and uncomfortable feeling. Always be observant and sensitive to your cat’s actions. 

There are also certain times when bruxism, or teeth grinding, is accompanied by other symptoms like excessive drooling and symptoms related to specific health issues such as rabies, dehydration, gastritis, kidney failure, and others. When you see that your cat’s tooth grinding is accompanied by other symptoms, consult your vet as soon as possible.

Any sign of a dental problem exhibited by your pet should warrant a visit to your animal hospital Carmel Valley.
