    Dental Extractions - concerns after surgery

    I tried wetting the freeze dried chicken treats just enough to soften. He doesn’t want anything to do with them! He’s alway been a very picky eater. Likes his food, but doesn’t like anything different. Anything new and he’ll let it sit there all day until dinner time. I’ll try wetting his...

    Dental Extractions - concerns after surgery

    His surgery was done at dental only specialty practice (they are on the AVDC website). We're lucky enough to live in an area where there are several practices within a 45 minute drive. We were in luck, scheduling wasn't a problem. He was at his regular vet for an annual (diabetes in remission -...

    Dental Extractions - concerns after surgery

    He does have a follow-up appointment scheduled for October 4, two weeks and a few days after his surgery. I am giving him Gabapentin, so hopefully he doesn't have pain. He does seem to be a bit better each day, his personally almost back to normal - he's following me around everywhere, even...

    Dental Extractions - concerns after surgery

    I thought about doing this, but thought that they would still be too course. They weren’t! Probably the best thing he’s eaten since surgery. Thanks! He seems to be doing better, no more hiding or weird behavior. Purring and for the most part, following me around. He is on gababentin for any...

    Dental Extractions - concerns after surgery

    Happy for the input. It’s so frustrating to not know how to comfort him. Good news - he seems to be better this morning. Jumping on the bed, purring some and following me around a bit. Certainly not 100%, but better than yesterday. Still doesn’t have his full appetite back, but he is eating. He...

    Dental Extractions - concerns after surgery

    I thought that he’s in pain makes me sick to my stomach. Will check again with the vet. Thank you.

    Dental Extractions - concerns after surgery

    Thanks so much for the response. Will try to look closer at his mouth. He won’t eat the food with his final Onsior and I won’t force him. Happily, right now he’s in one of his favorite chairs sleeping (not hiding!) - I‘ll try to get a look when he gets up.

    Dental Extractions - concerns after surgery

    Hi all, My 11 year old cat finally had some long overdue dental work done. This would have been done sooner, but he had difficulties with diabletes that we seem to have in remission. We delayed treatment because of his vets concerns over infection. Turns out he needed some teeth removed due to...

    Lost cat home... what now?

    We have a former feral who we cared, for while he was outside for 4+ years, when he finally decided it was time to become an indoor kitty only. He's been in the house for almost 5 years. And everything has been great. He's skittish around everyone except for me and my husband. With us he's a...

    Formal Feral First Vet Visit

    This is his first visit to a vet. Never been before except for his neutering years ago. At the time, they checked for worms and basic stuff, but other than one rabies shot, he's never had any vaccinations. I just don't want them doing any anything unnecessary. Not because of cost, I want him...

    Formal Feral First Vet Visit

    Thanks so much. Can you tell me if there's anything I shouldn't let the vet do? Like should he have vaccines or not?

    Formal Feral First Vet Visit

    Thank you both. Trying with the carrier. Will look into a leash if that doesn't work. Any suggestions for when we're at the vet? Thanks again.

    Formal Feral First Vet Visit

    I’ll try to make this a short as possible (apologies in advance for the length), but I need some advice. I have a formal feral who’s taken us almost 5 years to finally bring into the house. He’s been indoors for over a year and has adjusted wonderfully. We trapped and neutered him 4 years ago...

    Feral inside for 2 weeks, but maybe not feeling well?

    I'm really stuck with what to do. My little guy is still in the house, but really needs to see a vet. He still has these little sores around his neck area. He gets them (only 1 or 2 at a time) and then he scratches them off. He's starting to have bald areas around the back of his ears and side...

    Feral inside for 2 weeks, but maybe not feeling well?

    It's me and my husband in the house. He's not too crazy about my husband. We've been feeding him for 4 years and he still mostly runs from him. He's getting better, but slowly. Painfully slow. The vet who neutered him is female and I can request a female vet for the mobile doctor. Thanks for the...
