My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Oscar is having pain tonight.
Were you able to examine his mouth while he was having his painful episode? Did he seem to be in pain when you have the Metacam? Has he eaten since the episode?
I would wonder about something stuck in his mouth (food kibble, stick, rock, hair, etc) that could have been jabbing into his gums. He may not be used to chewing with missing teeth yet. If you haven't examined his mouth yet, that could be really helpful.Does this help? What questions do you have?
How is Oscar tonight? Were you able to examine his mouth? Any more pain episodes?
