Re: vet wants to extract teeth in young cat - and raw food Q

If finances aren't a major concern or Insured you can look into treatment with interferon for her gums, it's commonly used now as a treatment for calici virus mouth problems and often avoids the full extractions at such a young age.

Their fur feels like that of an oriental cat but that's cos it's so short I guess, I have googled til I can hardly see but nothing anywhere near comes up. I have added a pic taken today, the stripy bulge next to the kitten is the body of the worst one.

Yes I too agree to try a totally new protein as she more than likely is intolerant to the cat food and possibly chicken.

Have you tried just washing twice daily in diluted hibiscrub to dry it up? Just dab it on with cotton wool ball twice a day.
Also I know we probably mentioned this before but the 3 day antibiotic nasal flush cured my cats rhinitis 15 years ago..... Might help with the cause.
