Avatar f tn Your young kitty can eat regular cat chow, but your senior kitty should be on a senior cat chow. Older cats need a little different nutrition than young cats so you should definitely feed a "senior" food to the older kitty. I have always fed my cat dry food only. He vomits wet food. He also vomits many of the "expensive" dry food, so I feed him Friskies Indoor Cat Chow lol - he loves it and does not vomit it up!
Avatar f tn When we got Harley he was with a group of cats that were living in the woods. I was able to capture him and two others. All three of them had such bad teeth problems that after a time they had all their teeth pulled except for one cat, they left him four. The vet was unable to determine how old they were because of the poor teeth. I would think it would take maybe four years to have them get so bad, guessing, so that would make Harley 12 now.

Avatar n tn Hello,my name is Amy and this is my first post,so I'm excited to say "hi" ;-) anyway. I am 38yrs old and I'm 20 weeks pregnant with my 4th child. I am having my top teeth pulled this month and I am having concerns. I had the 1st six of my top teeth pulled and I don't feel right.I know everyone is thinking "of course you don't feel right, you had teeth pulled". In 7 days I'm getting the final 6 pulled.
1672333 tn?1416694918 or sorry I didn't realize she was picking at the carpet with her teeth....there is a condition called PICA when cats eat strange things... geez otherwise just to be pulling at it with her teeth is really odd. yeah cats can find strange things that just 'feel' good to them....soft and warm like mommy used to. try and find some cheap babies blankets the fuzzy ones and see if she'll take to those instead.
Avatar m tn Cats with FIV tend to get a lot of plak buildup on there teeth. You can brush your own cats teeth which they hate with a passion, or you can have the VET do it. I was always afraid my cat would die under the antehesia. I have that word spelled wrong. That is why I declined to have it done. This is my opinion: Stop all the medications that are orally given. There is not much a Vet can do for a FIV cat. I gave my cat Lyseine tablets to boost his imune system.
788225 tn?1282489826 The vet told us that often cats with no teeth or bad teeth just swallow their food. Not sure if what the vet said is true for all cats but there is a cat food called a/d by Hills that is quite soft and easy to digest. But it's expensive. Maybe some of that gourmet cat food would help Miss B to eat.
Avatar m tn Today my kitten was outside, shes usually an inside cat and I went and picked her up and noticed her back paw was bleeding. I'm pretty sure she just got some of her nail caught and a little bit of it ripped off, I cleaned it and tried to bandage it but she took the bandage off. When she's asleep I try to have a look at it but she keeps pulling it away, but it just looks like she has a little bit of the nail torn off, and a little cut or something I'm pretty sure.
541150 tn?1306033843 So I had to practically move to my parents’ house to get much needed help. The cats remained in the house and my husband would come every other day to check on them, give them some clean fresh water and scoop the litter box. The cats didn’t get groomed this whole time since I’m the one who usually does it. Dillan is not a problem. His fur is PERFECT since it never gets matted. Abby is another story. But don’t we already know that lol.
Avatar n tn for cats and that the high meat/fish levels are much better for cats. She says this is supported by current research. We are in the process of switching our cats from the mostly dry to the wet diet, but I'd like a second opinion.
Avatar f tn I was first given a round of antibiotics, and the pain, abscess and pressure/pulling sensation all went away. I then went in a few weeks later to have the cavities filled as there were 2 right next to each other that were very close to the root, but the dentist was able to just repair them with a filling and not a root canal.
Avatar n tn earlier in the summer my cat had blisters in his mouth on the left side. So off to the vet we went, shots and medication were given, 3 weeks of weekly cortizone shots and about 200.00 later 5 months later the blisters are back, what is the reason? In order to give him the pills I put them in tuna fish, now that's pretty much all he wants to eat, soes this have any effect on the blister thing? How good is "human tuna" for them too?

Avatar m tn I normally do not rinse mouth with water afterwards, leaving the coconut oil remains in mouth when spit out. so does it clean the teeth, gums and mouth at expense of your enamel?
Avatar f tn I need to have 7 upper teeth pulled and dentures put back in the same day. Is there a place in NC that will sedate you when they pull your teeth. I have a real fear of dentists and my family dentist sedates me for fillings, etc. So far I have not found a dentist that will sedate you for dentures. Please help me.
1969304 tn?1325893751 I also asked whether or not he has done a biopsy, if it is possible he accidentally broke the bones in her jaw himself pulling some of her teeth 2-3 years ago (she does have bad teeth and gum disease; has had it since we adopted her as an adult) because of possibly her jaw bones being weaker because of the peridontal (sp?) disease. I found a site at:http://www.mypetsdentist.com/site/view/113064_JawFractures.
Avatar f tn I'm just curious, when your cats teeth have been cleaned by the vet, and extractions, do you have to give antibiotics for 5 days before the procedure? One of the vets in my town does it that way, and one doesn't, he only tells you to give the antibiotic after cleaning. My mother went into a nursing home, and I acquired her cat Friday. She hasn't seen another cat in ten years, so I have her locked in my bedroom, and she hides under the bed.
152660 tn?1291755571 I took Oliver and Lucy in to our vet school here in town and got estimates for dental work. They told me about $500 for Oliver and $300 for Lucy which included an overnight stay that probably wouldn't be necessary, but was better to include in the estimate. For Oliver they added an extraction because we knew one of his canines would have to come out. They scheduled them both to come in this morning.

Avatar n tn t mind her in your bed it is in my opinion okay .Above you will see the link Hair pulling and eating..Dr Kennedy has some words to say about it ..
Avatar n tn I've been pulling with canola for a couple of weeks and my teeth are definitely whiter... problem is ive been reading coconut and avocado are better, like here https://www.mapleholistics.com/blog/oil-pulling-benefits/ Thoughts?
Avatar m tn My query is regarding Greenies- I know they have developed a feline form, however, I am somewhat doubtful as to their efficacy in helping to maintain good teeth, as they are the same size as many regular cat biscuits and are just as easy for the cats to bite through. Would it be safe to give the cats greenies designed for dogs, to encourage them to chew more?
Avatar f tn Could he have an allergy to an ingredient in the new food? You have to be very careful when changing a cats diet. You need to slowly introduce the new foods along with the foods that they are used to. I made that mistake with one of our cats and she ended up with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and unfortunately she passed away from it. It does sound like an allergy problem. Although some animals will pull out their fur when they are stressed out.
