Customer Question

My cat is 16 years old and always had teeth problems. Lots of tartar and bad breath. In checking recently I don't think she has very many teeth left. When she meows and talks to me, her tongue is held to the right side of her mouth. Why?
JA: IÂ’m sorry to hear that. Anything else I can tell the Veterinarian before I connect you two?
Customer: She was a feral one year old when we got her. Her tail is bobbed due to damage and she fixated only on me.
JA: What is the cat's name?
Customer: Bobbie Sue
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Are you noticing any bleeding from the gums? Is she having any problems with eating?
