Dolly the dwarf cat

Hi everyone, it's been a couple of years since I last posted an update. Dolly is just as small and cute as ever. The vet has decided that she has Piturity Dwarfism but there is no Un invasive way to say for sure. On her last trip to see the nurse and get weighed she was around 1 kilo. Her teeth are totally useless and she has really bad gingivitis, I'm surprised they haven't already fallen out to be honest. The vet did attempt to clean them but they are tiny as you can imagine. Dolly has a really good coat long thick hair but cannot groom herself (maybe due to the state of her mouth or because she was hand reared and does not know how to) but she sure loves to get brushed and is even getting use to the sound of the clippers for those stubborn knots. She has a new play mate 4 month old Coco and our 3 dogs although she loves to be in my bedroom relaxing or sleeping under the radiator. This is a new phone but I will try post a couple of new photos (not that she has changed much)

Hi, Just had a quick look at the previous threads on Dolly. In the photos she is soo tiny but very cute. Glad she is doing well, she sounds like quite a big character in a small body

Finally managed to change a photo in her album Dolly. It's the double photo of her on the sofa with our Yorke.

What a gorgeous girl!

My cat is totally resistant to having her teeth brushed, so she has to get dental cleanings. After her last one, my vet sent me home with some kind of gel you can swab on the teeth once per month - but since Dolly has such tiny teeth, that might not work for her.

I know there are also drops you can put into their water, drops that are supposed to help with tartar/tooth+gum health, but since you have another kitty and dogs as well, they might share water sources and it might be difficult to dose only Dolly with the medicated water! Although some of the products seem to be for both dogs AND cats and I guess it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world for all of them to get a dose :}

e.g.,

Dental Fresh for Cats at PETCO

I honestly have never used any of these products, so you'll want to ask your vet if any of them might be an option.
