My 4 year old FIV+ cat Lee-Lee is getting all his teeth pulled tomorrow due to inflammation from stomatis. He breathes fast sometimes, mainly when awake or first falling asleep. When he is comfortably asleep, his breathing is normal. Will be okay during the extraction process? He has very red looking gums, and still has an appetite, but I can tell his mouth hurts him. He doesn't like to be touched there sometimes, get ulcers and eats his food in small quantities, example being, one grain of kibble at a time. Has anyone else here ever put a cat with any awkward breathing patterns under anesthesia? Or had a toothless cat? His energy levels are still fine too, and he drinks well, but his gums and teeth look very red and sore.
