Teeth grinding in cats

Common Questions and Answers about Teeth grinding in cats


Avatar f tn -( Maybe the teeth grinding was related to stress from the teeth cleaning, or she notices a change in her teeth, and therefore reacting to it by grinding. For the Vet to "think" that it may "possibly" be caused from a tooth, and just pulling it, without taking an x-ray first, was completely RIDICULOUS! Check your invoice to make sure that no x-ray was actually taken, because if you are correct, then I would look up a different vet immediately.
Avatar f tn My old cat makes a terrible grinding sound when she eats, even when the food is totally soft and mushy. This has gone on a long time and she is dehydrated and doesn't eat or drink much. We coax her to eat as much as possible. She has lost a lot of weight. She has medium length fur and does have hairballs also. The vet finds nothing wrong with her lab work and sees nothing wrong looking in her mouth and cleaning her teeth. What could be the problem?
Avatar n tn Could my cat's grinding her teeth have to do with an ear infection? She was grinding her teeth for quite a while when eating, and we just found out that she has an ear infection. She has lost a significant amount of weight, we also think due to the infection.
Avatar f tn But I'm beginning to believe that I suffer from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, because I hear cracking/popping of joints, have clicking sound in my throat when swallowing, what I believe to be mild subluxations in shoulders and leg joint at hip, bleeding in gums whenever I brush my teeth, crowded teeth, and my sister and her child have mild form of hypermobility (though I don't). I also have symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.

In cats, some forms of benzodiazepines can cause liver failure when ingested. 6) Birth control (e.g. estrogen, estradiol, progesterone) Birth control pills often come in packages that dogs find irresistible. Thankfully, small ingestions of these medications typically do not cause trouble.
398849 tn?1210139572 In female cats, increased risk was associated with consumption of food packaged in pop-top cans or in combinations of pop-top and non-pop-top cans. In male cats, increased risk was associated with consumption of food packaged in pop-top cans and age. CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: These findings suggest that the increasing prevalence of feline hyperthyroidism is not solely the result of aging of the cat population and that canned foods may play a role.
931217 tn?1283484935 As I am sure you have heard, there have been numerous alerts, recalls and reports of food-borne illness reported in the last couple of years, associated with uncooked or undercooked meats served to human consumers in restaurants or sold to them in stores. The under-appreciated truth of our meat production industry, indeed of any nation's meat production, is that absolute certainty of freedom from sickness-causing bacteria in meat cannot be assured.
874521 tn?1424120397 Hi Jax, the combo is okay, especially if the main intake is the wet, but all wet would really be best and more especially, it seems, if you have male cats. The crystals seem to form in male cats more than females, at least, that's been the experience here on the forum and what my vet told me, also. Someone, please correct me if I'm wrong. Just a tip, Jax...cats are lactose intolerant and milk will upset their tummy and possibly cause diarrhea. Just water would be best.
1149072 tn?1269772847 He started to gulp and seemed to struggle when he attempted to eat. I was convinced he had something stuck in his airway. Then the grinding sound started coming from his jaws - he'd put his head on one side and make this dreadful noise. At that time I'd no idea what it was. I know now that it was cat-litter he was chewing on, which he had been consuming unknown to any of us. We rushed him to the Vet, who began to treat him for digestive problems.
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.

Avatar n tn He was very arthritic and in pain, grinding his teeth, blood coming from his mouth, using the entire house as litter box, and had gone deaf and mute in the last couple of months. We felt it was time to let him go before things got worse, he had a wonderful life with us, and did not deserve to suffer any more. I had always been told that when the vet uses sedation before euthanasia it is a very peaceful way for the beloved pet to go. Our experience was not so good.
152660 tn?1291759171 I hit the grinding of raw with bones and my gag factor kicked in. Ollie is 15 with horrible teeth- what he still has. Taz and Lucy are 12.
Avatar f tn Boys are creatures of convenience, and also, if clothes feel constricting,..."off with them" they might think! It feels good to be nude, and young kids have not always learned to be ashamed of their nakedness itself -- a good thing! If his parents have had difficulty with keeping his clothes on him, maybe they are allowing him to be that way...in the home setting, among themselves. That's his limits perhaps while he grows past the phase maybe.
Avatar n tn -my 16 yr. old feline went in for a kidney infection, had routine teeth cleaning w/ geriatric bloodwork. Took clavimox for 7 days - Upon returning home, she started grinding teeth, making strange sounds w/ jaw, scratching at face. To follow, started sneezing and coughing. - our vet took xrays and said her nasal cavities and sinuses looked cancerous because they were not mirror images from one side to the other and w/ older cats, they rule usually rule out infection.

176838 tn?1211463974 I shivered for about an hour- teeth grinding jitters they were! I stayed there pretty much the rest of the day! The heat this summer was excrutiating for me- I went in the pool when it was only 72 degress and it did not even make me flinch. No one in the family would get all the way in cept for me- at least I could swim laps and no one was in the way! It wasn't fair though trying to play marco polo!

624829 tn?1240759271 So maybe some people should peel the apple first, for their dogs. It is a fact that dogs' teeth are not built (like ours are) for grinding things like this up, so they will swallow large pieces, and I do suppose apple skin in huge pieces could be a bit much.(?) Another small point about home-cooked dog food, (to anyone) Please do remember not to include salt, or any kind of salted stock (cubes/sauce/whatever) in the cooking.
Avatar dr m tn One of the most important reasons to breathe through your nose is because of a gas called nitric oxide that's made by your nose and sinus mucous membranes. This gas is produced in small amounts, but when inhaled into the lungs, significantly enhances your lung's capacity to absorb oxygen. Nitric oxide is lethal to bacteria and viruses and is also known to increase oxygen absorption in your lungs from 10-25 percent.
Avatar m tn This may be caused by a combination of my nose problem, asthma, my ear problem, grinding my teeth a lot and teeth issues generally. - belly abnormally big...like a beer belly, it looks pregnant...inflated, like when you see a poor starving african child on those TV charity events. So many people comment on how odd my belly looks that I'm wondering if it's more than your average beer gut...what kind of body defects cause such an inflated stomach?

Avatar f tn The 2nd picture is a chromatograph that was taken from a breath sample of a volunteer who didn’t brush his teeth. The chromatograph was able to graph every molecular component in his breath and pinpoint everything including the different types of acid produced in this mouth. The arrow is actual pointing at the peak of ‘acetic acid’ molecules (same as vinegar) as one of the acids produced in his mouth. https://chromsci.oxfordjournals.org/content/40/6/337.full.pdf http://www.itsjustabox.
Avatar m tn This is normally associated with cochlear damage as a result of the noises you are exposed to during the procedure. Heavy metal poisoning from fillings in the teeth are also a very common cause of tinnitus. This generally occurs when one is replacing old fillings. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, myfacial, neck and back pain,headaches,jaw problems, bowels of course...
