I am horrified by the state of Boris's teeth. He was sat on my knee and his breath smelt very bad. I had a look at his teeth and they are in very bad condition. He has lots of missing teeth and one of his canines is thick with tartar. When we took him in the vets said he was between thee and five but looking at his teeth he looks more like a 15 year old cat.
This may explain why he has been a bit picky with his food

He's not insured so no doubt I will be in for a shock tomorrow when I ring the vets for a price to get them sorted

Yes i dont think dental work is cheap even on a cat , im sure they wanted 90 quid out of me to extract a tooth from my cat a few years back , but they said they would try and pull it as it was really loose , luckily it came out with one pull it was that loose , but had it not it was goin to be expensive for that tooth

I have been told about a new vets a few miles from here, apparently they do not charge for consultations so I'm thinking of taking him there for an assessment on what is needed.

I've registered Boris with the Animal Trust in Failsworth. Their website quotes some examples of costs for treatment and dental work with multiple extractions is approx £150. I'm hopefully off work Thursday and Friday so I'm going to try and get him in then

I'm sure Enzo's bad breath is linked to his teeth. His very back tooth looks a bit dodgy and there's like a ridge around the top between his gum and tooth I'm sure it isn't right.
I thought his yearly check up was around September but I haven't heard anything from the vets? I'll have to get in contact with them because his teeth was something I wanted them to look at plus his eyes.

Sel, is Enzo insured? Some policies have a clause that they won't cover dental treatment if you have not kept in top of cleaning etc. I'm not sure how they know and I'm not sure if vets do similar treatments like we would have on our dental check ups

Been to the vets today with Boris and he has very bad gum disease and is probably in a lot of pain with it. They think three, possibly four teeth will have to be removed so he is back there tomorrow for the op.
They also think he is roughly ten years old but hard to say depending on how hard a life he has had

Only two teeth removed today plus a scale and Polish. He's eaten loads since he came home so is obviously feeling a lot better.
He has a check up on Monday
Total bill was £150 plus £17 for flea and worming treatment
