Hi guys, back again with a question regarding mochas dental .. Noticed two weeks ago one of her lower canine teeth had come up missing .. She had a dental done years ago where both uppers were extracted, plus 7 other teeth due to resorptive lesions .. Took her to the vet and the vet said she could use another dental, with extractions most likely .. Not sure what happened to the lower canine tooth, dr said it may have fallen out due to more resorptive lesions .. The last time mocha had a dental done she was on insulin and we drove her two hours one way to a feline dental specialist .. Not sure mocha is up to that car ride again so the local vet was our next choice .. They DO NOT have an x ray machine for dental cleanings/extractions .. I'm pretty nervous about that, as well as the fact both times mocha has been put under (dental cleaning, spaying) she was hard to wake up .. Of course, those times were when she was much younger as well, as she is pushing 13 this year .. Mocha does not seem to be in any discomfort over the loss of her tooth and the only reason I noticed it is because she yawned right in my face, lol .. When I asked about pain meds, the vet told us she would use meloxicam? I seem to remember that not being the best option out there, but perhaps buprenex (?) might be the way to go? I am going to try and upload the paperwork the vet gave us on doing a dental at their place .. Thanks for any help you can give!
