Bad Kitty Breath

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My youngest cat has the absolute worst breath of any cat I have ever had. Her breath smells like litterbox. She is 4 months old and I have tried everything and the only thing worse than her breath is the other end. does anybody have any suggestions I will try anything!!!

Halitosis can be a sign of either oral disease or the wrong food. Four months old is pretty young to have stinky breath. Since this is about the age for a round of vaccinations, why not have your vet check out her mouth when you have her there? Some oral problems that can occur are gingivitus, stomatitus, ulcers, etc. The root cause of these can vary from tarter build up to a number of different virusus (herpes, calici, FIV, FeLV, etc).

How is her general health lately, and have you ever looked into her mouth for any signs of redness?

It would certainly send off an alarm for me because of her age. I suggest a vet visit just to be safe.

I checked her teeth and there is some redness around her K-9's I belive but it looks like maybe irritation from Chewing food her gums are nice and pink and everything in her mouth looks good. She has had it since I got her. But it seems to be getting worse instead of better. P.S. has anybody ever heard of a cat who will chew on anything including human hair. She also loves salt could there be somthing missing in her diet?

The best thing to do would be to take your kitty to go see a vet. Oral disease at any age is serious. Leaving it could lead to a much higher vet bill than what you may be prepared for. Please, take her to a vet as soon as possible.
