My 8yrs male really doesn't like wet food, didn't ever eat it before recently (year and a half ago), when his teeth started going bad. But he still really doesn't like it without all the treat toppers. Thursday he broke his tooth, I took him to the vet on Friday. He practically has no teeth and the vet said he would hate to put him under bc of his age and for only 1 tooth that will probably fall out like the rest. They gave him antibiotics, pain killers and full blood work. He tried to eat when he got home but didn't eat much (I was ecstatic bc he hadn't eaten dry for 2 days and he didn't hide to eat wet treats). Its Wednesday and he still is not eating much dry. I weighed him and he lost 1lb since Friday! I'm so worried. There's also this bulge coming from his left rib now. Maybe because of the weight loss? His blood work was normal and healthy but he has/had a UTI, meds are supposed to clear it up. Should I take him to another vet? Try kitten food? I'm gone almost all day and my cat is a grazer who loves dry. I need him to eat. He is having 3/4 of Sheba pate mixed with 1 pouch of delectables bisque and topped with a squeeze, I spread it into 4 feedings. He really doesn't like wet that's why I mix it with delectables. And he won't have temptations dry, which is like a drug for him, I can tell he wants it but at the same time he knows it hurts so he doesn't. It's so sad to see him in pain, it's killing me! Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for your time!
