The worse case scenario is that even if she has to have all her teeth removed she will still function just as before. I had a Devon who had to have all her teeth removed so that got rid of her painful mouth and she ate her biscuits better than when she had her teeth as her mouth wasn't painful any more. A pain free kitty is a happy kitty. I hope this helps - once she had had the teeth removed I wondered why I had ever worried about it.
When you feel that all the world is against you, the affection of a little cat can mean so much.
I'm sorry that I can't help as I've not met the problem but as Ajax & others on the forum can a attest a cat can continue very well even if all its teeth are removed, which I hope won't happen to your cat and that this is just one tooth.
Wish you & your cat good wishes for the op in April Let us know how it goes.
Happy days with Roman, Osiris & Lexie (remembering Chloe & Penny)
When Willow was with us he only had four remaining teeth, and he ate ten times better ( when his CRF didnt make him have an of day ) than he did with all of his teeth. good luck with her op and i'm sure she will be fine xx
Life is like a camera, focus only on what is important, and you will capture it purrrrrrfectly!
Hi. I was the nurse on a lesion case only a few weeks ago. The cat had a few teeth out and is now eating like a horse and has healed beautifully! Your cat may lose a tooth or so but she'll also lose pain! A few antibiotics and painkilling meds and hopefully will be better within a week or two. She should also have her teeth cleaned at the same time so nice polished knashers which means she may not need a dental again for a long time, if at all!!!
Try not to worry too much, this should hopefully only be a short term problem.
