Cat Chat with Arloa

It can suppress the immune system and cause internal organ problems.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 05, 2012

981 Media and actress Arloa Reston have released the latest in their series “Cat Chat with Arloa”, which discusses basic feline dental care and is available at CatChat.TV. The series is devoted to giving humans the necessary information to keep their cats healthy and happy and helping cats in shelters find permanent homes!

Today’s episode is part 1 of a 3 part dental series and is focused on basic feline dental care. Dental disease is the number one feline health problem seen by veterinarians and is the largest single cause of health problems in cats. A domestic cat does not do all the things involved in killing fresh prey that a cat in the wild does. Pulling the meat off the bones and chewing large chunks of meat contribute to keeping a wild cat's teeth clean and strong. Domestic cats who eat commercial food need other methods of cleaning their teeth and home dental care is all too often overlooked by pet owners.

In this episode, Arloa interviews Dali, a certified veterinary dental technician from Houndstooth, about overall dental care. They discuss the importance of dental care and brushing, how often to brush, signs of dental issues to look for with your cat's teeth, signs of a healthy mouth and the impact of diet on feline dental health.

In addition to causing oral problems such as gingivitis and tooth decay, poor dental hygiene can contribute to other, very serious internal cat health issues such as liver disease, kidney infections and heart damage. According to Dali, "The bacteria in the mouth doesn't stay in the mouth. It tends to circulate in the bloodstream and it can lodge in the heart and kidney and liver. So it can suppress the immune system and cause internal organ problems."

Upcoming episodes will detail exactly how to brush a cat's teeth at home, what to look for in professional dental hygienists and dental veterinarians and the differences in anesthetic dental cleanings vs. non-anesthetic dental cleanings.

This week on CatChat.TV, viewers will also be introduced to Hobo, a feisty, playful and fluffy orange and white homeless cat looking for his forever home. He is available for adoption through Cat Connection, a cat rescue group in Sherman Oaks, California.

“Cat Chat with Arloa” is an informative yet entertaining series focused on cat health and helping homeless cats fine permanent homes. New episodes are available every Wednesday morning at CatChat.TV.
