To maintain oral health, we brush our teeth twice a day. And what about our pets? Do cats need to brush their teeth or has nature foreseen everything?
Nature is nature, but the teeth of cats lose their whiteness in the same way. Plaque appears on them, which eventually turns into tartar, causes gum inflammation and destroys teeth. But if you regularly look after the pet’s oral cavity, all these problems can be avoided. How to do it?
A daily brushing would easily solve the problem: a toothbrush removes 80% of plaque in just half a minute! But how often do you meet cats who like this procedure? That’s right, there are none. So, we use other methods. We will please you: there are many of them!

2. Clean the area around the tree. Of course, it is not necessary to pick up candy wrappers, but it is better to remove fragments of glass, sharp sticks, stones and other dangerous objects. It is impossible to predict where the jumping cat will land. Try to protect her from injuries. Continue reading
Which wet cat food is best?
Wet food is the perfect choice for your pet. As a rule, they are very tasty, easy to digest, because maximally correspond to the nutrition of cats in natural conditions, and also contribute to maintaining the water balance in the body and reduce the risk of developing IBD. We talked about this in more detail in the article: “Which food is better: dry or wet?”. But not all diets are equally healthy. We talk about which wet food to choose for a cat and what to pay attention to in the first place.
Before buying feed you need to carefully study its composition. In the first place in the list of ingredients should be meat, because cats are primarily predators. Continue reading
