Maven Vet and Partner, Dr Mike Baumann, has contributed to new reasearch that has shown which bacteria are associated with feline gum disease for the first time.
Mike, who has a great interest and passion for pet dentistry, collected plaque samples from many feline patients, with their owners consent, over several months. These samples were analysed by the authors of the report which was first published in ‘Veterinary Microbiology’ in February of this year and which has been published online today.
Mike said, ‘It is great to have been able to contribute to this research. The results are very exciting as they open the possibilites for more effective treatment of cats with gum disease.As a gold standard cat friendly practice we welcome any advances which may improve the lives of our feline friends.’
