we just got him in may (he's a old man....8yo we adopted from a shelter). he's really sweet and huge lol. i noticed that he had some black gunk around his mouth and then when i cleaned it off his mouth looked inflamed. that was yesterday. i took him to the vet today and she said he has a condition that causes his gums to over-react to tartar/plaque and the best way to treat that is to get his back teeth pulled out. now i have to take the poor guy to a specialist to see about that. it sounds expensive to me.... anyone have to get this done for their kitty? i hope it won't take him a long time to recover bc he is pretty old. she said that they don't really chew their food (even dry food which is the only food his tummy will tolerate). i'm just nervous about the whole thing i guessAnswer Question
