Hi all, my kitten Louie is 17 weeks old and 2.6kg. He has always had a great appetite mostly eating RC wet and dry food (half a can mousse or 1 pouch wet food + 30g kibbles per day). 5 days ago he suddenly refused his usual food and only ate half of it. I brought him to the vet who had to remove a milk tooth fragment from his gum.He had a general anaesthesia and no side effects. The same evening he ate a lot. The next day and since then, it has been 3 days already, he has no appetite, he doesnt go near his bowl, I have to bring it to him every couple of hours to feed him a little.Still he probably eats 70% of what he would normally eat. He eats the dry food from my hands as he finds it hard to chew or take the kibbles with his mouth. He drinks water, no vomiting, no diarrhea, he has no behavioural changes or anything. The vet saw him yesterday and said he hasn't lost weight, has no fever etc. Is that normal for kitten who are teething? Should i get bloodwork done just to be safe? How to make him eat again, I already tried cheaper brands and he didn't like them. Thanks!
