Thank you Lisa and Abymom.
I feel better hearing about your first-hand experiences.

Emily seems to be getting better day by day. I think that, on Monday, I will quit putting out wet food all day and go back to our usual routine of dry food all day and wet food as a treat at dinner.

Guess that will be the real test...

Carol, Emily, & Eddie



>>I've been through this with two cats. Both did fine with a couple or no teeth. In fact, Spunky's were all removed at age 3... and he no sooner was home from the vet than he wanted his dry munchies. Of course the vet had recommended none for a few days until his gums had healed, but he wasn't in the mood to obey the Dr's orders. Not having teeth didn't seem to slow him down in the least. He still was front and center for treats, be it steak or pizza-he loved the crust. Go figure.

>>Cat's teeth are mostly designed for ripping apart prey more than chewing, but most seem to adapt just fine to not having the teeth, plus the ongoing problems with the gums and so forth go away and they are more comfortable.

>>Best wishes for Emily's speedy recovery.
