Re: Senior cat lost her main front right fang - not eating
A number of years ago I was feeding a stray. I can't remember all the details, but I started out feeding dry, and for some reason switched to canned. I would scoop a lump of food into a dish for him. Then I noticed that he was just nibbling at the top of it and I thought he'd gone off of it. Then I noticed that his fangs were missing (maybe other teeth as well) and that he had to try to grasp his food with his lips. I switched to a small chunk senior's dinner and he seemed to be able to pick this up. Again I can't recall why, but I also swithched to small amounts five times a day, but he was being fed outdoors and an food left out was grabbed by crows of raccoons. Maybe you can hand feed small pieces without resorting to a syringe.
Don't know if this information will be of any help.
