It is estimated that 70% of ALL adult cats have a dental health problem, with periodontal disease being the number one culprit.
The good news is that most dental conditions are preventable and treatable, if caught early. Basepaws’ Dental Health Test analyses more than 1,000 microbes in your cat’s mouth looking for disease signatures before they become visible to the naked eye. This knowledge arms the pet owner and the veterinarian with vital information for comprehensive dental care.
“Knowing your cat's oral microbiome profile, allows us to provide treatment options necessary to maintain a healthy mouth, personalized education on home preventative care, and what your cat's future dental care needs may be.”
“A cat’s oral health is one of the keys to a long and happy life. And, the mouth holds many secrets. It takes a skilled veterinarian to do a thorough examination of the entire oral cavity and interpret their findings. Having more tools to evaluate our cat’s oral health is an amazing possibility!”
“The cat’s mouth is the gateway into the body. The veterinarian plays a key role in keeping cat’s teeth and gums healthy. This goes far towards a long and comfortable life. Embracing the information gained from knowing the oral biome greatly aids in tailoring specific care for each cat.”
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!
