Today is Snowball’s Gotcha Day! One year ago my mom drove me to CT ( I am a baby about driving on highway) to meet the lady from Snowball’s shelter in NJ. The whole story was in Sunday’s post in case you missed it.
Today is medical day and when I got Snowball she had some issues. I noticed that she didn’t have many teeth which was odd for such a young cat. My hubby and I assumed she had been kicked and lost teeth because she runs when you walk directly toward her. When I took her to the vet, it was discovered that she suffers from tooth resorption which is actually fairly common. I am not a vet so here is a better desription:http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/01/17/teeth-resorption.aspx. I was shocked to see it is common being that none of my other cats ever had that problem. It is more common in Persians and I have only had one other one before.
She ended up having to have a couple more removed so she has about 2 left. The good part of this is that she will never need her teeth cleaned 🙂 She seems to have no trouble eating, I give her mostly canned food, but she does like a few croutons ( crunchy food) on top.
