Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
I am sorry to hear about Kitty.
Where her teeth pulled, or did they fall out?
My name isXXXXX am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
It sounds like she may have an infection. The warm and cool compresses are a great idea. Is she eating and drinking still?
If this is an infection, she may need antibiotics, and medication to reduce pain and swelling.
If she is not eating, I would be worried about her becoming dehydrated, so I hope she is still eating and drinking.
I am not seeing responses from you. I hope you can see what I am saying.
I will try to connect another way if I do not hear from you.
I don't know what happened inside her mouth. She looked up at me one day and I noticed she looked swollen. Later found the holes in her mouth.
Is there anything that I can use besides antibiotics? I can't afford a $200 vet bill. I am now using a saline solution to clean out the mouth.
Kitty is being treated with the saline solution several times a day.
I spoon feed canned cat food with milk to make it soupy. Also make sure she gets water by giving it to her with a medicine dropper. Hoping this will help her.
