Bombay and Dental Exams

Bombay and Dental Exams

Dental exams are not required for cats; however, it is generally a good idea to have your cat’s teeth cleaned regularly. Some cats like the Bombay may be prone to tartar or plaque buildup requiring routine cleanings. Key indicators of gum disease or dental problems include bad breath and trouble chewing or eating. Another indicator for the need for a dental exam could be swollen gums as well. This along with the unusually bad breath could signal gingivitis or other periodontal illnesses. Your vet will need to conduct a physical exam in order to determine a cause of the symptoms. During the dental exam your Bombay cat will be sedated so that the vet can thoroughly check her teeth and gums for plaque, bacteria, etc. Your vet may take this opportunity to scrape plaque or calculus build-up from the teeth, pull rotted teeth and polish the teeth. Call your veterinarian Indianapolis IN for further information. Visit this website to know more.
