Cats are notorious for hiding their pain, so how do you know if your feline could be suffering from a toothache? Well, turns out, there are a few signs that might clue you into a problem, so keep an eye out for the symptoms in this video to help determine if you should call the veterinarian.
Cats aren’t likely to stop eating just because they have a toothache, but you may notice that they seem to be swallowing pieces of food whole rather than chewing them. Cats with toothaches may also sleep more. They may also tend to chew food on just one side of their mouths. If you notice a change in your cat’s behavior, your veterinarian can help you get to the bottom of the cause.
