My baby Gizmo is having a dental extraction on Thursday. He has stomatitis and it is severe. He is only 1.5 yrs old. The vet said he will try to leave the K9 teeth but depending on his X-rays he may need a full mouth extraction. Is anyone familiar with this procedure and if so could you tell me what to expect afterwards as far as care and healing time? FYI ketamine will not be used.
Positive thoughts are sent his way. There are several posts about stomatitis here in the community. Type in the word stomatitis in the search bubble and many past posts will pop up. Usually I would attach links, but there are several so I do not want you to miss any. Many are eating with no problem and no teeth with a couple of weeks.
our son's 23+year-old grey cat (not sphynx) lost her teeth from age, and now she has just one canine tooth. She also came to Adam declawed in the front. She eats anything she wants, from dry food to people food, and regularly beats up their roomate's large male cat. The other cat has both claws and teeth, but Mystical is such a diva that he will not fight back. I don't know much about stomatis, but I do know that cats that have the extractions often heal up completely, feel great and have a better life afterwards. I hope this happens to you!
