my cat only has 3 teeth left (two top canines and a back tooth), and she's completely fine, we add warm water to her wet food and mix it all up (helps increase water consumption also), so there's no chewing required.
How long ago did you have this done?
This is what happened. She went in for full tooth extraction after 3 flare ups with this since Sept.
I have always known that it was her back teeth with the problem, never her front. Her enamel is not even deteroiated
Vet calls me right at the very beginning looking at her teeth (she is under) and says she really doesnt need them all out, that he has seen much much worse over the years (He has been a vet for decades, both his kids are vets) and felt only 6 needed to come out.
Her front teeth have never been inflammed.
So I went with the recommendation with the idea that if this is done in stages that may be less traumatic rather than having them ALL out, and most of them being very healthy teeth, would be much more traumatic..(sorta like someone needing both knees replaced, but not having them done at the same time due to the intense pain and trauma)
I hope that I made the right decision. He did ask how old she was (9.5 years)
Too late now. But I just wasnt expecting a call from him really recommending that not a full mouth extraction...
