Oral Health Benefits of Water Additives for Cats

Water additives are one of the simplest ways to help maintain your cat's oral health. Although brushing your cat's teeth is an essential part of a dental care routine and should not be skipped, dental rinses and water additives offer several benefits and are safe to use. Adding a water additive to your cat's drinking bowl each day, or as often as recommended by your veterinarian, can help eliminate bacteria, prevent plaque and tartar buildup, and keep your cat's breath smelling fresh.

Kill bacteria

Water additives fight bacteria not only when your cat drinks water, but also keep your cat's bowl clean and fresh by preventing bacteria buildup.

Reduce plaque and tartar

While killing bacteria, the ingredients in these dental care products can also prevent plaque and tartar buildup (when used as a supplement to toothbrushing).

Help freshen your cat's breath

Water additives are a convenient way to help whiten your cat's teeth and maintain healthy gums.

Molly's Tip

Water additives and dental rinses should never replace toothbrushing. For optimal health, schedule your cat's dental exams every year for a proper cleaning and checkup.
