What age do cats lose teeth

It is very common in cats to lose their teeth as they get older. This can be due to a tooth becoming loose, teeth being damaged when they are broken through chewing, or older teeth falling out as they are worn away. In some cases, cats can lose teeth because they have gum disease.

Do older cats lose teeth or not?

There is no definite answer to this question as cats can lose their teeth at any age, but there are some common trends.

The most common time for cats to lose their teeth is between the ages of 6 and 12. This is the age when most cats are neutered and have their teeth removed, so it is a time when they are shedding their baby teeth and don’t have any other teeth to replace them with.

Cats also lose their teeth at a younger age, especially in the first few weeks of life. This is due to the fact that a kitten has to learn how to use its teeth properly, so it will use them a lot in its first weeks.

If you see a giant balloon, resist any urge to try to get inside it. Heliox is a mixture of helium and oxygen used for scuba diving and for medicine because it's easier for the lighter gas to pass through obstructed airways. Read more
