I have a beautiful 11 year old Himalayan. A few weeks ago he started having a hard time chewing. Our beloved vet retired so we brought him to a new one. The new vet said it could be dental issues. We scheduled a cleaning and x rays right away. Last Monday he had the cleaning and as soon as he returned home he was a different cat. He had no interest in eating or drinking. The vet said it was probably because of anesthesia. I brought him in the next day because I was afraid he was going to get dehydrated. They gave him fluids and an anti nausea shot and said he should be feeling better in no time. A day and a half passed and he was still not eating or drinking. I brought him to an emergency animal hospital. They gave him pain meds, an appetite stimulant and anti nausea meds and sent us home. Another day and half passed with him just laying around no interest in food or drinks and I brought him back to the animal hospital. This time I noticed a new symptom. His tongue is curved to the left side of his mouth. We met with a neurologist who said it could be cancer or stroke and said we should consider a MRI but that it would be another procedure that he would have to go under for. That night we were weighing our options and he decided to drink some water. Since, the appetite stimulant has started to work and he is eating. But only soft foods, as he cant really chew. I followed up with our new vet this week with a visit and he said he doesn't think its cancer or stroke as he would have other symptoms. I don't know where to go from here. I have had blood work 3 times, all been normal. We did xrays and ultrasound. All normal. The vet who preformed the cleaning said everything in his mouth was fine. No extractions. Just some inflammation. The MRI is very expensive and its another procedure he would have to endure. One vet says yes, and the other says no. I am so torn. Anyone have any experience with a curved tongue? I've also noticed he's been sneezing quite a bit the past two days. Not sure if it is related. I know this is very long and if you made it this far thank you! I just want to help my baby. Any advice would be so appreciated.
