Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi this is Dr. Hill. Please give me a moment to type my full response. Thank you
It is very likely that Zani has dental disease and would benefit from having a thorough dental cleaning with extractions as indicated. Many cats with severe dental disease will either chew on one side of the mouth or lose weight because they cannot comfortably eat dry food. There is nothing over the counter that is safe to give him for pain. I would only offer canned cat food until you can see your local veterinarian on Monday. Feel free to ask follow up questions. You can continue posting on this thread for a couple of days, even after rating my response. Take care.
