Customer Question
My cat will be...

My cat will be undergoing surgery next Thursday for a full dental check up, 4 extractions and deep gum cleaning. I noticed in the last couple of days he has lost two of his front teeth. He has stopped eating his dry food. He will eat the wet food now. I think he is in pain. Is there something safe I can give him to keep him comfortable until his surgery?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is your cat's name and age?

Johnni, 12 years, 8 months

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Johnni?

He weighs 7.45 kg and has a lump on his tummy but it is fatty cells, it was already checked by his vet.

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I would be happy to help you

I am one of the veterinarians authorized on this site to answer questions by text and/or phone

If you would like to just text then please ignore the phone call request from the site

There certainly is in the short term

You can give him Aspirin-> 1/2 of an 81.0 mg baby aspirin every 2 to 3 days

I would not give one within 48 hours of the dental as it will make prone to bleeding
