Hmm . . . maybe he had something kind of stuck in his teeth or something, and it worked itself out on it's own?   :-\

I'm glad he's back to his normal kitty-self.   :)

Dropped him off in the am.  Just picked him up.  All went well.  Thanks for the positive thoughts.  Will catch up with you all later.

We also got a sample bag of Hills t/d.  I didn't say a word.  I just threw the carp in the garbage, when I got home. 

The doc did say to feed him canned food for 8 to 10 days.  I did tell him that he only eats "wet."  I wanted to add... "He likely won't be back for another dental anytime soon, because he is now on an all raw diet."

That looks like another of those recipes designed to bring patients back in on a regular basis.

EXACTLY!

I have a new vet that I prefer (that has a clue about species appropriate diets), but I like the "old" vet for dentals.  He has had dental training... outside of the little training taught in vet school.  He seems to do a more through job with the furkids' teeth.  Too bad he is still under the spell of Hills and Purina.  It makes me sad.

I didn't realize Arrows had had a species-change operation to a cow.    >:D

How's he feeling today?

So did he have any extractions? Pain meds?  How is he in himself, and eating? Was he put on antibiotics?
