he black one, Max.

I noticed this morning his face looked swollen. So I took him to the vet, and when she opened his mouth to examine him, blood spilled everywhere. He has a raging infection in his mouth. Two of his back teeth are just suspended in infected flesh, and he has a large mass in the back of his mouth. The vet said it could be cancerous, but at his age, 11, its not likely. But they do a biopsy anyway. Tomorrow he goes to surgery to remove the mass and the bad teeth. I asked the vet how this could happen, and she had no answers. I don’t give him sweets, so I am baffled.

He is afraid of people, so this is very hard on him emotionally, and well as physically painful. Please send your positive energy his way.

Good vibes coming your way :hug:

All cats seem to get mouth infections at some point in their lives. It usually means a quick dental and a case of the Sulks when they get home and find they can't gobble food straight away... but it's a very routine thing. I hope Max gets better soon, Solice :hug:

Good luck Max. :hug:


Once I had a kitten, she only lived a week due to virus. At least I've done my part. I hope yours will come out well, best of luck to both of you.

Awww...

My cat broke a tooth one time and got an infection; I know how bad off he was until the medicine started working, so I can sympathize. After they remove the growth they'll put Max on some medicine to reduce the infection... it won't be easy for at least several days, but I think it will work out okay. ;)

Solice, I hope your kitty pulls through. Older cats have handle surgery alot better than younger ones, so I'm sure everything will be okay. I made a thread not too long ago for my little cat, so I can relate completely with how you must feel right now. Lots of love to you and Max. :hug: :hug:

You are all very sweet, Max thanks you. :hug:


His surgery went well. The 'mass' in his jaw completely destroyed his right mandible (lower jaw bone). They removed all his lower right teeth because they had no bone to hold them. The vet also directly gave him a shot of anti inflammatory into the gum. She is confident he will recover fine as long as the biopsy is negitive.

He can still eat with his left side. Cats don't chew much anyway. He will only get canned food for a few days.

Now its a wait and see for the biopsy. It won't come in until next week. I should not think about it, it would make me crazy.

Aww, that is so sad. I will pray that he will recover quickly.

I had a 9 year old black cat that passed away about two years ago. He died of kidney failure, and it broke my heart. In fact, I was more sad about his passing than some of my relatives. It's amazing how close you can get to a pet.

But your cat should be fine, like I said, I will pray for his recovery.

The biopsy came back, he has cancer. This one (http://www.marvistavet.com/html/oral_squamous_cell_carcinoma_f.html). I don't smoke, and he does not wear a flea color, so the vet thinks it's genetic.

There is no long-term cure. So I am going to look into Chinese medicine. Humans can get this too, so perhaps they have a therapy.

He is in my lap right now. He is happy. The infection is gone for now.
