Cheeky’s Trip to MK Vet Group Cat Clinic

Cheeky visited us at our Stoke Road cat clinic last month as he needed dental treatment. He was lucky enough to be the only cat having a procedure that day so it was nice and quiet and got lots of fuss from our team. Cheeky was provided with a cat castle to provide a place to feel safe and secure and we also use Feliway diffusers which release pheromones to help our patients feel relaxed.

Prior to Cheeky’s anaesthetic, he was given a premedication to provide pain relief prior to his dental and make him relax. Once the premedication had taken effect, he was given an injectable anaesthetic to induce anaesthesia and maintained on anaesthetic gas throughout the dental. Throughout the anaesthetic, Cheeky was monitored by our nurse and connected to monitoring equipment including ECG, capnography and blood pressure monitoring.

Before any extractions, the vet will assess the teeth and take x-rays to assess the roots which are under the gum line. After assessment, Cheeky had to have 8 teeth extracted which were found to be diseased. The x-rays also showed that Cheeky had a condition called pulpitis which was affecting one of his canines. Pulpitis is inflammation of the dental pulp tissue. The pulp contains bloods vessels, nerves and connective tissue, supplying the tooth’s blood and nutrients. Pulpitis is usually a secondary complication of a fractured or chipped tooth.

After Cheeky’s dental, he was placed into a recovery area and monitored by our nurse until he was awake. Cheeky has now recovered well and regained his appetite!
