When an Exotic Cat is in the wild, the natural instinct to feed inevitably involves the hunt. This can almost be as intricate and artistic as a well-choreographed dance.
The Siberian Tiger for example stalks its prey sometimes for hours until they are close enough to begin this “dance”.
When dinner is close enough, they pounce and bring down their prey burying their three inch dagger-like mighty canines and vice-like jaws around the unsuspecting main courses throat. Then the feeding begins by ripping and tearing and so on and so forth. This is about as raw as a diet can be. This is how nature intended exotic cats to eat.
This almost ritualistic feeding is not possible in confinement.
Let’s now examine your cat or your dog at home. They need to be on top of their oral health to prevent bacteria from entering the blood stream which can affect their heart, kidneys and liver. By maintaining appropriate oral care, this is accomplished.
Regardless if an exotic cat is being cared for in a zoo, or a sanctuary, the same is true for them.
Oral care is extremely important and if enough bacteria builds up, they are faced with the possibility that they may need a dental scaling, or even other more serious procedures. To do this, they need to anesthetize them which means they need to sedate them with a dart to get them back to the clinic or facility.
