Did you know that 8 out of 10 cats over the age of three have tooth or gum problems?
A startling fact, particularly for something that's so easy to prevent! This little factiod surprised us so much, that we decided to do something about it.
At the moment, the only way to keep your kitties gnashers clean is to brush them yourself... However, if your kitty hasnt been getting her teeth brushed since she was a kitten, doing it now is going to be... tough. (Can anyone get a cat to do what it doesnt want to do?)
If the thought of brushing your cat’s teeth doesn’t sound like fun, simply sprinkle the Scruffy Paws Dental Scrub onto their food for an effortless way to maintain dental hygiene in between dental cleanings/vet visits
PREVENT GUM PROBLEMS – 8 out of 10 cats over three have tooth or gum problems, but the Scruffy Paws Dental Scrub can improve dental health and hygiene to prevent problems from occurring.
