Eli is going back to the vet
Eli went to the vet last December, right before we started making our own cat food again, and I was told he needed a dental. I was in a bit of shock over that since he basically had just had one, but looking over his teeth I noticed she wasn't wrong about that.
It was December, and I really really wanted him to wait until it was actually Spring (not just calender spring, but actual warm weather kind of spring) or even early Summer to take him in so I could take Fleurp in for her recheck and probably get someone else looked at too (since my vet offers a small discount if you take three or more pets in at once) but things have taken a turn around here and other health issues have popped up for him. I think it probably has to do with the stress of bad teeth, so we are going to start there and see what happens.
I know it is folly to think that feeding a raw diet will fix all health issues, especially when he spent so much of the first part of his life eating junk, but part of me still gets a little angry that it doesn't. Reasonable or not, feelings are what they are. *sigh*
I feel bad for my boy, and hope that this does a world of good for him - and that he doesn't need dentals every six months for the rest of his life..
