Dental Care

Ragdolls are special cats for special people.

Pets have teeth too!! Imagine how your teeth would look and feel if you didn’t brush them routinely. The same applies to your Ragdoll’s teeth. Unless you are regularly providing some form of dental care to your Ragdolls teeth, you are neglecting an important factor in your Ragdoll cat’s overall health.

Periodontal (or gum) disease is one of the most common ailments seen by your veterinarian today. The problem begins when plaque and tarter are allowed to build up in your Ragdoll’s teeth. Plaque harbors the bacteria which can infect gum tissue and the roots of the teeth. Besides the negative impact on the oral cavity, bacteria can also enter the bloodstream through a large network of blood vessels located near the gums and teeth. Studies have documented that certain heart, liver, and kidney diseases
are associated with this bacteria.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Recovery is generally uneventful, the hospital stay is short, and aftercare is minimal to none. Regular care of your Ragdoll’s teeth will increase your cat’s general health. Dental care is one of the best ways to return the love your Ragdoll cat shares with you.
