Tooth Resorption

Well my persian kitty gets her tooth removed on Tuesday, I knew she had tooth resorption over a year ago but put it off..


I always brushed her teeth since her kitten days...Well couple days ago there was blood when I touched it with the brush so I immediatly made a appointment..

It was what I already knew it to be, well she got to keep her tooth for a year now its time to go ��

Persian genetics im feelin some effects...to the tune of $850 counting todays visit

Black Friday visit, I cant even visit amazon now ��

Ouch! This is a new issue to me, but I'm guessing that it's a negative trait specifically with Persians I have a Sheltie (dog) that is genetically prone to bad teeth, too. She had a molar to chip last year, but so far no extractions.

No advice, just commenting to say that I'm sorry to hear it and I feel your pain

Vet called Allie had her tooth removed but she told me the same tooth on the other side also had resorption and needed to come out also..

I pick her up in 3 hours

Im upset she had another tooth with resorption.....Im happy she will be in no pain after its healed and we can have a good xmas...

How is Allie doing post-dental?

It must be frustrating that you put the effort into brushing her teeth and that she developed dental issues anyway. But she'll be a much happier kitty now. FORLs can be painful, even though kitty may not show obvious signs.

I hope she won't have any more issues, but even if she does eventually need more extractions, even completely toothless kitties do just fine (their owners, maybe not so much given the costs).

One thing I'd recommend is that you always have a dental x-ray done after an extraction. Both of my girls ended up with a tooth root that was not fully removed, and that can be super painful.

Thanks Sprite!

No xrays, the vet said her tooth came out easily, Allie’s a trooper shes good, purring, taking the meds all good..

Oliver in his eyes I was not aware, I should have been, sees Allie as a Strange cat in the house...I just wiped Allie down with wet napkins, first I did Oliver then Allie trying to get his scent on her and the vet smell off her...

I didnt realize until today how much anxiety Oliver has, I fed him just a little this morning and he puked it right back out...Sigh normally im on top of things, I should have known better... I should have wiped her down yesterday...

Sometimes it helps to put a dab of vanilla on the back of their necks and near their bums, because, well, that's where they sniff. This way, they'll smell the same.

I tried vinegar after reading your post, didnt work Olivers mad


i just rubbed tuna juice on my hand and put it all over the two of them. Allie is finally grooming herself she didnt do it since she came back as far as I have observed

Im going to put them in seperate strollers again like this morning parked close to each other

I always ever had a single cat, this is cat behavior 101

Well, I suggested vanilla, would NEVER recommend vinegar.

Lol im sorry I did use vanilla I mistyped that

So far no go, the tuna juice made Allie clean herself more but I still smell a perfume on her

They were 1/2 ft away from each other in the strollers just fine but if Oliver sniffs Allie its all over..Oliver did eat, I think his anxiety dropped a little, he seems a little more relaxed, im also using feli spray to no avail...

I think when Oliver smells nose to nose with Allie he smells the extraction site

OMGosh, so glad you didn't use vinegar, even I can't stand that smell.


Hopefully things should go back to normal in a couple days.
