Cat Dental Case Study


maruEmily's cornish rex Maru was having a few issues of late. Since Emily had adopted her she was gaining weight more slowly than she would have liked, was a slow eater, and had stinky breath. And we mean stinky! Other than that, Maru was quite content in her home and settling in well. She would sometimes lick her mouth, and not just straight after eating, which also was a bit odd.


Emily brought her in for a general check-up and to have her teeth examined, as she was thinking there may be a dental issue.

Maru's teeth had a fair amount of tartar build up and the tooth in question appeared to have a loss of connection to the gingival tissue (gum) and moved a little when touched.

After placing Maru under anaesthetic the tooth was found to have quite a large cavity. The other teeth were cleaned with our ultrasonic tooth scaler to remove traces of plaque and tartar. The gums were checked for health, and looked good. The routine part of the dental treatment was completed with a thorough polish of the teeth. Polishing benefits your animal by removing tiny remaining traces of plaque, which reduces the rate of plaque reformation.

A routine extraction was performed on the troublesome canine incisor tooth. This was achieved by placing pressure on the periodontal ligaments to loosen, after which the tooth was lifted out with ease.

The remaining cavity was flushed, and Maru was then able to wake up. She recovered well from her anaesthetic, and was able to go home that

Emily was advised to not feed Maru overly soft food for a few days, such as minced meat, loaf or tinned food. That night Em gave Maru some whole meat chunks and dried food, which Maru gobbled with gusto.

Emily has reported Maru 's breath is already significantly better, Maru is eating more quickly, and she seems to be one happy cat!

If you would like your pet's teeth examined for pathologies, give us a call on 5543 1213
