Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
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? Were the teeth filed down alway the way or is there still some of the teeth left?
I know sometimes that procedure can be done if the canines are difficult to remove for some reason but the concern would be that the root would be exposed unless they placed some type of cap on the teeth otherwise that could be pain. But the first option I would choose would be to remove them completely if I were doing the dental because at least the root would be removed
What pain meds was he put on?
My initial impression would be that she may have not been comfortable extracting those teeth. I know there are not too many veterinarians who are comfortable extracting teeth especially in cats unless they are almost falling out. If she still seems uncomfortable and it is due to the teeth then she may need the roots extracted. If your veterinarian is uncomfortable doing that then you may need to be referred to a veterinary dentist.
