Molly at the vet!

Have you ever checked your cat’s teeth? You definitely should, since dental problems are the most common disease in cats. Cats are secretive by nature, and it can be difficult to tell if a cat is in pain.

Today we had a vet appointment for Molly because we suspected something might be wrong with some of her front teeth.
When we adopted her about four months ago, she had the most perfect set of front teeth, but recently we noticed her gums looked red, swollen, and irritated. We called the vet and made an appointment.

We are using Monty’s vet for Molly since we love the team and it’s a part of the shelter from where we adopted Monty, so whenever we visit the vet, we are supporting the shelter cats!
The vet, Katrine (Kat), examined Molly and said that they needed to get some x-rays to see what was going on with those front teeth.

We had to leave Molly as she was going under anaesthesia, and saying goodbye to her even though it was only for four hours was difficult!

Drunk and waking up

When it comes to Monty and Molly, we are so soft and Michael even asked me in the car if we could just stay in the parking lot and wait for her so we could be close to her. But we pulled ourselves together and drove home to keep Monty company while we waited.

Four hours later we picked up our little girl. She was very tired and still drunk from the anaesthesia (and still is).
It felt so good to kiss her and she was clearly very happy to see us!
Kat told us that the x-rays showed that one of the front teeth needed to be taken out, and they were able to do that while she was under the anaesthesia. Everything went perfectly and Molly also got a teeth cleaning.

When we got home, Monty greeted her with headbonks and a lot of sniffing. She obviously smells weird to him but he isn’t hissing or anything.

Right now Molly is sleeping in her basket and Monty is laying next to her, like he is watching over her. He is the best big brother!

Finally in our arms again
Finally home again

I dag havde vi Molly en tur til dyrlægen, for hendes fortænder i under -og overmund ser altså bare mærkelige ud!

Da vi adopterede lille Molly for ca 4 måneder siden, sad hendes tænder snor lige, som en Colgate reklame, men her kort tid efter, er hendes helt små fortænder på mærkeligt vis rykket sig! Det lyder mærkeligt og det ser underligt ud, så nu var det altså tid til dyrlægen.

Vi bruger altid katteklinikken på Kattens Værn i Brøndby (https://kattens-vaern.dk/katteklinik), hvor vi i 2013 også adopterede Monty fra. Kattens Værn er jo absolut ikke nogen rig forening og de har da også underskud på alle adoptionskattene og vildkattene de redder, så hver eneste gang du vælger at bruge Kattens Værns katteklinik, støtter du deres kæmpe arbejde for alle Danmarks katte og du kan være velvidende om, at du ikke støtter en privat dyrlæges fede bil, men til gengæld katte i nød. Det kan vi godt lide at tænke på, men uanset hvilken dyrlæge du vælger, er det bare vigtigt at du stoler på personen.

Nå men vi afleverede Molly i morges og efter at dyrlæge Katrine (Kat), havde kigget på hende, vurderede hun, at der skulle røngent billeder til, for at kunne se om der var nogen af tænderne, der skulle opereres ud. Så lille Molly skulle i narkose.

Det var jo absolut ikke sjovt, at køre fra vores lille pige og vi skulle da også lige tage os sammen, til rent faktisk at starte bilen ude på parkeringspladsen, hvor Michael forsøgte at overtale mig til at vi da sagtens kunne sidde og vente i de 4 timers tid. 😉

Da vi hentede lille Molly igen, havde hun fået opereret 2 tænder ud og det bekræftede os i, at det var den rigtige beslutning vi havde taget, ved at tage hende til dyrlægen.

Operationen var gået godt og hun havde også fået tandrens.

Monty blev rigtig glad for at se sin lillesøster igen, også selvom hun tydeligvis lugter af dyrlæge og er halvfuld, den lille stakkel.

Lige nu ligger de ved siden af hinanden. Molly i sin kurv og Monty ved siden af kurven, hvor det ligner han ligger og passer på hende.
