If you’ve ever tried to get your cat to sit still for anything, you know how difficult it is. Most cats won’t sit down for anything unless it’s feeding time.
And this adorable stubbornness extends to grooming, as well. While they’re self-reliant up to a point, there are still aspects of grooming they can’t take care of.
Case and point, teeth cleaning. Just like you require the occasional trip to the dentist, your cat does, too. It’s important to keep your cat’s teeth clean at all times, as it lowers the chance of gum disease or tooth decay.
But the cleaning process is one that requires finesse and care. Read on to learn why you should always hire cat teeth cleaning experts.
Pro Cleaners Know What They’re Doing
While there are tons of YouTube tutorials that could teach you to clean your cat’s teeth, none of these sources make up for years of training.
When you pay for cat teeth cleaning, you’re paying for years of service and expertise.
These cleaners know what they’re doing and have gone through rigorous training. They’ve put time and effort into their craft, and they’ll take care of your beloved cat.
One quick glance into your feline friend’s mouth and they’ll be able to spot problem areas and come up with a plan.
Less Risk of Injury
If you’ve owned a cat (or even been around cats, really) you’re well aware that they do what they want when they want. And if they don’t like something, they’ll make it abundantly clear with their claws.
Avoid needless injury and a lot of frustration by contacting your local vet’s office. Remember, these people are trained professionals. There’s more that goes into preparing a cat for teeth cleaning than just holding it down.
And we haven’t even mentioned the risk of injury to your pet. It’s understandable that you love your cat and need to save money. But as your cat squirms and attempts to wriggle away, it becomes all too easy for an accidental injury to occur.
It isn’t worth the risk to yourself or your cat. Professional cat teeth cleaning services are safe and reliable — for both cleaner and pet.
Furthermore, they’ll have the right set of tools. After all, you’ll need more to clean your cat’s teeth than just a toothbrush and some determination.
Cat Teeth Are Fragile
Finally, let’s say you do manage to finagle your cat into sitting down and behaving. First, congratulations, that’s no easy task.
But brushing too hard can result in a chipped or broken tooth. Cat teeth are quite fragile, so proper care is a necessity.
Even a small chip can affect your cat’s ability to perform simple tasks like eating and grooming. And that’s not even mentioning the pain of exposed nerves. You love your pet and want the best for them. Leave the cleaning to a professional.
