Oral health is essential for us as well as our companion pets. The oral cavity involves not only the teeth but also the tongue, gingiva, oral mucosa, hard palate, and jawbones. It receives food and sets up the stage for proper digestion. In dogs and cats, as well as many other species, the oral cavity is not merely used for eating but also play and grooming.

Cats are wonderful, furry creatures with a lot of love to share and very unique personalities. Some cats enjoy physical interaction, but others less so. It can provide a challenge to respect boundaries if the feline is prone to overstimulation or if there are underlying medical concerns that may affect the cat’s behavior.
