Cats and the tooth fairy

Escrito por Mundo Cachorro

Cats also molt their teeth

We don’t know how cats will get along with the tooth fairy, but what we do know is that it happens to cats like it does to us, they also move them.

And it is a process, the molting of the cat’s teeth, that although many people do not even know that their cat has changed its milk teeth for the definitive ones, in other cases, it can even cause serious health problems.

We must therefore be very careful with our baby cat.

Milk teeth

A kitten at birth does not have any, these will appear progressively. The first to emerge will be the incisors, which will do so between the second and fourth week of life. Then it will be the turn of the fangs and molars, and so on until the eighth week of life, when they should have their full set of milk teeth. A baby cat is 26.

It is also important to keep an eye on the posterior eruption of our cat children’s permanent teeth when they change to adult teeth, because here too they imitate us humans and may have problems.

Sometimes, baby teeth do not fall out in time and do not allow the permanent teeth to erupt.

If we notice difficulty in our cat‘s mouth, or something strange in it, it is best to go to the veterinarian to avoid problems. At six to seven months of age, they will normally have already molted their teeth. An adult cat has 30 .

It may happen that a cat swallows one during the moulting process, causing gastric disorders and even fever. If your cat is listless and does not want to eat or play, go to the veterinarian immediately.
