I am sorry to hear Mr Mew is only 6 and has bad teeth. Is he able to eat?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 10 months ago.

The best and safest pain medications for cats are by prescription only. The only over the counter medication that you can give would be 1/2 of a baby aspirin or 1/2 of a low dose aspirin, and you can only do that once. Never give a cat Tylenol; it is poisonous.

Let me know if this helps and what other questions you have.
