What is the Treatment in cats?
extraction of the diseased tooth instantly restores your cat to his former self. Once the tooth is removed he/she is free of pain and can continue a normal life. Even if a cat has all of his teeth extracted he/she can still eat most foods including dry food. Try some blending of their food for a day they will try to eat better. Only Blend the foods that they like, anything new they won't eat. Remember cats are very picky about what they want.
