We recently had our catís teeth cleaned under anesthesia for the first time. We would now like to maintain healthy teeth & gums by doing regular cleaning ourselves as the cat also has chronic kidney disease and we donít want to place her under anesthesia again.

Brushing the teeth ourselves would be almost impossible so we want to use a dental gel or spray such as Leba III. However, we are concerned that most of these products have ingredients which could adversely affect the kidney function, such as the alcohol in Leba III.

Does anybody know of a kidney friendly dental spray or gel which can be safely used on a CKD cat?

Why not ask your vet or the vet tech first ? I would be 100% more concerned about the CKD moreso than whether or not her teeth are clean. Anesthesia for cats it is a last resort and should only be for teeth removal etc. (According to honest vets we've had, anesthesia can be dangerous for cats. Not to mention a big time money maker.)

Try a bag of "Greenies" dental cleaning treats, from the pet store for your kitty to munch on -- they are formulated to help clean the cat's teeth. Mine gets 2 or 3 per day, loves them, and has no tartar.

Cole & Marmalade's dad recently made a good video that shows how to acclimate your cat to tooth brushing:

I've found that most cats love the cat toothpaste, which is most of the battle.
