Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi Stephen, I'm Dr. Deb. I will do my best to assist you today. I'm terribly sorry for this concern about Mr. No. I do have a few questions to ask about him first, if you don't mind:1. Why do you think he has a toothache?2. Is he still eating?3. Is he drooling or does he have a discharge from his mouth?
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
He has tried to eat but drops his food an cries in pain. He doesn't seem to be drooling but he seems to be in so much pain he has reared back on his hind legs and paws at his mouth and cries out.
We just brought Mr. No home this evening (Friday June 28, 2013) He had surgery this morning and seems to be doing fine. We were right, he did have some bad teeth and some abscess. They removed four teeth in all. We will take him back in a few weeks for a check up.
Thanks for your help.
