Re: Possible oral cancer
- Years ago I had a Persian that got cancer in his mouth. He wouldn't
eat or drink water. I fed him canned food with a baby spoon and a
syringe and water with a syringe for 5 months because he seemed happy
and you couldn't tell that anything was wrong with him except for not
eating. When he became very lethargic and I knew he did not feel well
at all, I had to make the decision. But up until that time, I couldn't
see doing it as long as he was happy and had quality of life.
Good luck and I hope it turns out to be teeth that can be removed.
Bless yours and Misty's hearts and the best of luck to you both.
