Q & A: Cat’s toothache

Q: Do animals feel toothache like we do? My cat has to have her teeth cleaned, and some removed, according to my vet. She doesn’t seem to be in pain though.

A: It is very likely that your cat feels pain with periodontal disease, even though she might not whinge or complain. The pain levels vary with each animal and may be low or hardly noticeable. ‘Chattering’ teeth or other signs of oral pain may be noticed while eating of grooming. Drooling, crying out or refusing to eat might be possible signs that your cat is in pain.
