It is no secret that cats have very dirty mouths. Many cats will require more dental visits in their life than a dog. In the animal field, people are more scared of a cat bite than a dog bite because they are more likely to get an infection from a cat bite. So how can you, as an owner, help prevent this?
You can brush your cat’s teeth as often as they will allow. Below is our list of the top 5 toothbrushes for cats. We choose these toothbrushes based on their durability, versatility, head design, and more. We hope the recommendations help you choose the best toothbrush for your cat.

Whether you’re trying to cut back on your cat’s dental expenses, work on their bad breath, or help them be healthier, brushing their teeth is a great thing to do. However, choosing a toothbrush for your cat can take up a lot of time by trying to figure out the best option. Below are a few different things you should keep in mind when choosing a toothbrush for your cat:
A: Unfortunately, some cats have more sensitive stomachs than others. Therefore, the only way to know if the toothpaste included in the kit will cause diarrhea in your cat is, unfortunately, to try it and see what happens. If your cat is known to have a sensitive stomach, you should try the toothpaste once or twice a week and slowly increase the number of times you use it.
A: Every cat has a different comfort level when it comes to the size of the brush head. The list above contains the smallest heads on the market that we could find. However, your cat may still not be comfortable with the size of the toothbrush. Sometimes starting with a finger brush can help the cat adjust to having their teeth brushed.
