Hello. My cat, nearly two years old, has been grinding his teeth daily ever since he got a tooth pulled as a kitten. I've gone to the vet many times about this, but because there are no visible signs of damage or disease in his mouth and it isn't hurting his appetite they are writing it off. Did something go wrong with his surgery? Has anyone had a similar experience? I'm worried this will cause lasting damage down the line since he grinds so often. Should I just go to a new vet and seek a second opinion?

oh my goodness, what an odd problem. I have never heard of this one. That is so good you did take her to a vet to find out what is up. The internet has a few suggestions when i ask "what makes a cat grind her teeth" and one of them that seems likely for this situation you describe was a slight misalignment of the teeth.
?
but that is encouraging that your cat's teeth seem to be tolerating this grinding without being damaged. whew.

there is no harm in getting a second opinion from a different vet... sometimes, some vets are just super busy and do not take some questions seriously enough.
