Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
When did this happen? What is your cat doing that makes you think there are scales stuck?
And she ate it with the scales, I assume? When did this happen?
Okay. How is she doing now? Scales can be removed relatively easily with tweezers, but they usually need to be sedated to do it.
I am trying to find out how the cat is doing now before giving you an answer. Here is your answer: if the cat will allow you to look at the tongue, and you can see scales, you can remove them with a tweezer. If your cat continues to have problems, and will not allow you to look at the tongue, you will need to see a vet to have the cat sedated to remove the scales.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Best of luck.
It is possible it could work itself out. If it does not, though, it could form an abscess and cause problems. If she is still having problems by Monday I would see a vet.
