My son and his wife have a kitty named Kittys. Last week she wasn't eating well so they got worried and took her to the vet. She is a young cat less than 3 years I believe and at the visit they diagnosed her with gingivitis and she needed to have 3 teeth removed and to have her teeth cleaned at a cost of 319.00. So since this is surgery they had to make an appt. and they took her in last Friday morning. During the day they were called because one of the teeth that they pulled took some of the bone with it so they needed to reconstruct that part of the bone and also said they needed to pull 3 more teeth but they didn't mention that it would cost any more but the kids assumed it would be just a bit higher but boy were they surprised. They went to pick her up and the bill was 800. and I thought my son would have a heart attack but he paid it because what are you doing to do?
Now here is where your help comes in. They took her for a check up at the same vet 6 months ago and she passed with flying colors. My son even asked them about Kittys breath because he thought it didn't smell very fresh and they just laughed it off and said it's probably what she ate. Now can someone tell us that gingivitis can attack a young cats mouth in just six months time? That just doesn't seem right to me. Kittys has to go back this coming Tuesday for a follow-up and he wants to bring all of this up to them but I'm just afraid they are going to give him the run around and that is why I wanted to know what he should do? Yes he's a grown man but he's my baby and I'm always looking out for them. I think it's horrible that Kittys had to suffer all of that as well. They have a baby coming in 8 weeks and 800. sure could have gone a long way with diapers and such.
