Default my cat has rotten teeth

she needs a tooth removed and the rest cleaning. The vets bill are so high, they quoted us £116 plus more if she needs extra teeth out. She has to stay in overnight, Im always worried she wont wake up from the anastetic. Has anyone else has this treatment done?

Yes, actually Sasha had all of her teeth taken out and has been absolutely fine. I know it always a worry when an anathstetic is involved but the extractions are done pretty quickly and the result can be remarkable for your ***** cat. Bad teeth cause so much pain, it really would be for the best.

Sasha manages to eat just fine without any nashers and she has certainly been a much happier girl since the operation.

Concern over anesthetic effects are very valid. Ask them to use Isoflurane. Here's an excellent thread that Dr. Jean replied to: Anesthesia question.

If the vet is well practiced in teeth cleaning and extractions, your kitty should come thru just fine.

My cat Fiddy just had all but three fangs and one tooth removed a few months ago. I was concerned fiddy wouldn't wake up either, considering she is nearly 11 years old.

But everything went fine. It cost a lot of money, $600+, but it was worth it. She's in no more pain and she's even eating her normal food again.

So I'd say, go for it, and take care of her teeth once they've been cleaned. Really worth it, and your cat will thank you.

Elizabeth, thats actually a little cheaper than we would charge you. For basic dental work you'd be looking at around £130, plus extra for extractions. I'm sure she'll be fine, if she's geriatric you could request a pre-op blood screening to check on her kidney/liver function before anasthesia.
