For those of you who keep up with what’s going on with my cat Tiger, here’s a little update.
She had her annual check up and boosters this week. She’s somehow managing to put on weight, I weigh out all her food so I’m not sure how this is happening. I guess we’ll have to reduce what she gets some more – I’ll talk to the vet. We’re going back next week because it turns out she needs to have dental work done.
The vet has recommended she be sedated and have her teeth cleaned, and the two lower canines have to come out. This is sad news, but not completely unexpected. Her teeth haven’t been great the past few years -nothing major, just not very clean. We’ve been giving her toothpaste, but she will not open her jaws for us, so we can’t brush.
She’ll get a blood test too, to check on her kidneys and see if there’s anything else amiss. Lets hope not! She’s 13 now so things are starting to come up.
These cute little teeth will be missed
Hope all goes well. I hate the worry that comes from vet visits.
