My little Indy is going in on Monday to get his teeth cleaned because of periodontal disease, so maybe I should see if the vet can look at her also.
Has anyone ever heard of this happening? Any thoughts on what could be wrong?
I hope your kitty is OK. I am replying to your question about wet or dry food.
#1 Grain free is the most important Feed the best you can afford.
#2 Wet or raw is ideal - a cat should have at least 75% wet in their diet as they do not drink enough water. A dry diet can lead to early renal failure. You can add some water to canned food and warm in the microwave making soup ..this will add even more water to their diet. The more the better.
Dry food does nothing for their teeth any more that eating something crunchy allows you to skip brushing your teeth. Treats do not really help either, even tartar control as they are also filled with other junk. In nature, their teeth are cleaned by the activity of eating their prey. Thus far we have found nothing that a cat will do that imitates that (unlike dogs).
