Customer Question

My cat Special is very old and has a bad smelling absess on her left, rear tooth. Stinky. She had shots but they don't last. My vet doesn't want to pull her teeth. But this disease is really bad.

Hi, I can help you with your question today.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

9 years old is relatively young for a cat! I do not think that her age is any cause for concern with anesthesia. Does she have any other medical conditions that might be worrying your vet?

I'm just following up on our conversation about your pet. How is everything going?

Hello Dr. Susan. I am just answering the email. OK Special has a kitty gum disease that makes her breath smell. Her gums become swollen and infected then Special is unable to eat. I make her cat food into a soup twice daily. She had many deposit shots but it isn't working. Can she still go through surgery?
