My 1 year old male cat has "overgrown gums" and needs a gingivectomy (removal of gums). This is a surgery that requires anesthesia and several hundred dollars.
Has this procedure been done on your cat?
Does a gingivectomy prevent tooth loss?
Will the gums overgrow again?
Even with the gingivectomy will I need to brush his teeth?
Does a water additive help in removing plaque and tarter? If so what product have you used?
Thanks everyone. I really don't wan to put my cat though this procedure unless it's absolutely necessary to keep him healthy.
