Cat Dentures

A group of college students who called themselves Fangs A Lot have opened a business in Britain named Animal Solutions. They sell false teeth for cats. And dogs and other animals, as needed.
Cats have notoriously bad dental problems. Cat owners seldom brush their cats' teeth or scrape the surfaces of the teeth to remove plaque. By the time a cat is 3 or 4 years old, she may already have periodontal disease that can lead to tooth loss. Tooth loss may also come about as a result of tooth breakage, particularly in the canine teeth.

Will the business take off? Only time will tell. Link -via Dump Trumpet

Doesn't the need for a service like this tell you that what we're feeding our domestic animals isn't quite right? You don't generally see gummy lions or wolves in the wild, do you?

Hi! I'm the author of the original article sourced to Dump Trumpet. I just wanted to note that the article is about plans to market the false teeth in the future. They are not for sale currently. The students who designed the false teeth for cats had a prototype made as their entry in an invention contest.

Thank you for including this piece amoung your selections!!

I'm supposed to try brushing my cat's teeth? She refuses to even be brushed! Oh well. 14 years and she's never had more than a little plaque build-up.
