It may be possible, but I know realistically that for many cat owners, brushing their pets’ teeth isn’t going to happen. Fortunately, I am a firm believer that something is better than nothing — what I call the “good, better, best” approach to dental care for cats.
The bottom line is this: Don’t give up. Talk to your veterinarian about all the options for your cat, starting with a complete dental examination and probably a cleaning under anesthesia to get you off to a good start. And then do what you can, because anything you can do is better than the misery of stomatitis and other dental problems for your cat.
