Dental & Gums

Homer's teeth & gums are turning black. I give him a fresh bowl of water ever day with cat mouth wash mixed in with it. I also give him running water from the tap. He eats dry cat food with temptations for treats. Is this normal for a cat? I'm afraid that his teeth are going to fall out. Any suggestions?

    Do you feed your cat with exclusively dry food? Kasseyy is right. It could be periodontal disease. Have you solved the problem? Is your Homer okay?

    Wow, I would be in your place, if you have already tried something and it did not help you, I would turn to a specialist, because it does not need to be delayed and treated yourself

    Thanks for the replay Kassey. I pretty figured out as much but this is my first time owning a cat, i've always had dogs. They are not loose or crooked so hopefully they will not be falling out anytime soon. Have you ever had an animal's teeth cleaned? I have not but none of dogs have had this problem. I was wondering if it worked & about the cost. I could see where he might be in pain one day from it so I would like to do something about it before it becomes too late.

    If your teeth feel loose, become crooked, or fall out altogether, you probably don't need a dentist to tell you there's a big problem. This is typically the result of periodontal disease,” which causes bone loss around your teeth and jaw.
