Oral health problems in cats can quickly become a concern. But, unfortunately – this is a health issue that is often overlooked. This can lead to greater health concerns and costly fixes, which CBD for cats can help with in a variety of ways.

 

CBD for Cats with Oral Health Problems

 

Cats can suffer from different oral health problems. This can include – gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. CBD (cannabidiol) is a natural compound found in hemp plants that has been shown to have a variety of potential health benefits, including reducing inflammation, pain, and anxiety. However, before giving your cat CBD for oral health problems, it’s important to talk to your veterinarian to determine if it’s appropriate and safe for your cat’s individual situation.

 

If your veterinarian determines that CBD may be beneficial for your cat’s oral health, there are a few different ways you can give it to them. One option is to use a CBD oil or tincture and administer it orally using a dropper or syringe. You can also mix the CBD oil with your cat’s food or water.

 

Another option is to use CBD-infused treats or chews specifically designed for cats. These can be a convenient and tasty way to give your cat the benefits of CBD, while also promoting good oral hygiene. However, it’s important to choose high-quality products that have been specifically formulated for cats and that do not contain any harmful ingredients.

 

It’s also important to start with a low dose of CBD and gradually increase it over time, while monitoring your cat for any signs of adverse effects. CBD can interact with other medications your cat may be taking, so it’s important to discuss this with your veterinarian before starting your cat on any CBD products.

 

In summary, CBD may have potential benefits for cats with oral health problems – and our products are here to help with that!

 

Understanding Feline Dental Disease

As mentioned in this blog post

 

Diseases of the teeth and gums are common in cats. Studies report that between 50 and 90% of cats older than four years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, but fortunately the most common forms of these diseases are largely preventable or treatable with appropriate preventive dental care and monitoring.

The three most common dental diseases in cats are gingivitis, periodontitis, and tooth resorption, and the severity of each of these conditions can vary significantly. Dental disease in cats can cause serious pain and discomfort, which can impact a cat’s quality of life. In many cases, dental disease causes a cat to stop eating, which leads to a variety of health problems.

Symptoms of Oral Disease in Cats

  • Red and Receding Gums
  • Foul Breath and Poor Appetite

Preventing Periodontal Disease in Cats

As mentioned in a previous blog

Healthy cat teeth play an important role in the overall health of your cat. With a whopping 90% of cats developing oral concerns over their lifetime, maintaining your cat’s teeth is vital.

As with humans, cats can get tartar buildup, suffer from abscessed teeth, and even develop gum disease. All these things can lead to – not only bad breath but serious health concerns and oral infections over time too.

 

So, how can you prevent periodontal disease in cats?

 

Brushing is the most effective method for prevention of periodontal disease, but it may be challenging for many caretakers. Dental diets, chlorhexidine gels, and dental treats can also be of benefit, whether paired with regular brushing or used on their own.
