There's a six-year-old kitty Who was fine last night but now

Customer Question

There's a six-year-old kitty Who was fine last night but now is drooling with an open mouth. Not sitting in the pain position but when attempting to touch the mouth is becoming very upset and trying to bite. No other real symptoms but he is being quiet with an open mouth and drool maybe some blood mixed in. Do you think This is dental or is it possible he was bitten?

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and recently came online.

I'm sorry for this concern about Boots; do you still need help with him?

If so, I have a few questions to ask first, if you don't mind:

1. Does he go outside?

2. Is he eating?

3. No facial swelling that you can see?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
