Cats keep secrets
Remember, cats are experts at hiding pain

Your cat can’t raise their paw and tell you their mouth hurts. Because of this ability to hide pain, usually when they exhibit the common signs, the disease is advanced and needs medical attention. This makes dental biome testing so critical, especially for cats!

Early signs of dental disease to watch for:
Bad breath
Red or swollen gums
Gums bleed easily
Dropping food when eating
Pawing at the face
Loss of appetite and/or weight loss
Jaw chattering
Irritability or depression

Test Regularly. Test Early. This might be the most important thing you do for your cat!
