Cat full mouth extraction

I recently took my cat to the vet because he was having issues with his gums. The vet recommended either:

1. Extracting his back teeth and waiting to see if that helped, or
2. A full mouth extraction

The low/high estimate was roughly $2,000 - $3,600.

Has anyone had to go through a full mouth extraction for their cat recently? How does the above quote look? Any vet recommendations around the GTA?

oral care is very important for cat's health and longevity
don't let money be a deterrent
but you can always shop around
thanks for being a good pet parent.

Our cat just had 13 teeth removed last week, due to decay after switching to soft food exclusively (male with kidney issues). Our vet capped their fee at $2,000. The bill showed an additional $1,200 that was discounted.

We believe this was a large source of discomfort for him for the past year, which affected mood, behaviour, feeding. We're hopeful this brings him back to his old self, save for eating the really hard Greenies treats (which didn't seem to do anything for dental health).

FYI, the work was done at VCA Secord Animal Hospital, where he's been going for most of his adult life.

Good luck.

Brrr - your cat will be just fine and eat more than you think. It wasn't a cat but a small dog that we had who experienced issues and had to have most of his teeth removed. Of course he loved food, was an Alpha and wasn't about to be deprived of anything. Mind over matter.

I agree with you about Greenies. Outside of the choking issues which are bad enough, they really did not help our dog's teeth at all (we only tried them once).

I brush my two cats teeth every other day, it took a while for them to get used to it, but treats plus clicker training made them tolerate it.
