Most often, bad breath is caused by a build-up of odor-producing bacteria in your pet’s mouth. This can be a result of dental or gum disease; certain cats, in fact, may be especially prone to plaque and tartar build-up (Gingivitis). Diet and dermatological issues can also be contributing factors. However, persistent bad breath can also indicate more serious medical problems such as abnormalities in the mouth, respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract, liver or kidneys. In all cases, Bad Breath is a red flag that should be investigated.
Your veterinarian is the best person to pinpoint the cause. A physical examination may reveal the cause of your cat’s problem. If not, further tests will likely be recommended. Be ready to answer questions about your cat’s diet, oral hygiene, exercise habits and general attitude and and behavior.
Doing this during your cats holiday helps you to get this done soon rather than later by having someone experienced able to take the cat and collect the cat after the teeth cleaning so you don't have to arrange for time off work. The highly trained Kitty Carers at Cooinda Cat Resort are able to do all the pre-requisites set by the Vet Clinic for teeth cleaning as the cats teeth are cleaned under anesthetic.
