When we adopted Goro in 2009, we started
dental care by tooth brushing and dental chew.
It worked for Goro. So when we adopted Niko
in 2010, we started the same dental care for him.
Sadly, Niko quickly developed gingivitis.
He had the 1st dental cleaning at early age 1.
Since then, we tried many popular dental care
products. None really worked for Niko :-(
That is #1 reason why
we started kids on a raw diet.
Along with new supports.
First, neither Goro nor Niko showed
interest in raw chicken neck.
But kids LOVED it in freeze-dried raw form.
In fact, they got quite excited.
Goro...you are a bit scary.
Niko, wait! Eat on the plate!
Gradually, they got used to it...
Got good table manner, too :-)
* Always supervise when kitties eat bone!
So far, this dental care regimen has worked best
for Niko, though he may still need dental cleaning
in the near future (maybe next year.) We do
our best to keep his teeth as healthy as possible.
By the way, I got chicken feet recently. Thought
they might clean teeth and kids enjoy chewing.
It was NOT well-received...
Note! I don't mean this is the best care. Every kitty is
different. Information on dental care items here is
based only on my amateur web research and choices
are made to suit Niko's condition after trial & error.
