Benny's age is not really known but would guess him at 5. Rosie is 1 1/2. Benny was taken to the Vet for $100.00 and he gave him a tube of Orotene. This morning, he finally ate. I gave him some really soft food in milk. Rosie gobbles all the cat food down. They have been on dry cat food before this.

What type of milk was used?

Did your vet discuss periodontal disease with you on one or both cats since the Oratene was dispensed?

When was bloodwork last performed on both, if ever?

When did they both last have professional dental cleanings performed?

When were they both last examined?
