Reasons Why Cats Like the Korat Develop Gingivitis

Gingivitis is a common gum related disease that can occur in cats like the Korat. There are several different causes for the gum disease. The main one is related to a cat’s overall dental hygiene. For instance, cats that don’t have their teeth brushed regularly by the owner or vet can develop a buildup of food and plaque on the teeth and gums. Cats that eat a diet of mostly moist or wet food can develop food buildup easily as well. This is because a crunchy hard food would naturally help breakdown buildup on the teeth whereas moist food does not. Other causes for gingivitis include a general health history. For instance, old age, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, soft food, breathing through the mouth, bad chewing habits, uremia and diabetes, autoimmune diseases, FeLV (Feline Leukemia), and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) can also lead to gingivitis.
