Tooth Surgery

Our 17 year old male cat just had two of his teeth removed Thursday because our vet found out that he was very dehydrated and not eating so they checked into what the problem was and found to infected teeth.  Now he is walking around with his head titled to one side. he doesnt walk very far before he lays down again, he is eating a little and doing his other business. My question is what is happening to him? Is he coming off drugs that they gave him for his surgery or is there something else wrong?

Oh bless him, I expect he is a bit sore after the tooth extraction.  Ring up vet if you are very concerned that he is still not eating, as that is a worry.  

I had a cat the same age as yours, and I think, like humans (I am 71) it takes longer to get over things.  

He is obviously unhappy at the moment.  See how he goes, but if he continues like that, you will have to see vet again I should think.  Oh such a worry.

Do hope he feels better soon.  Let me know how he gets on.

How is your cat doing now?  Is he still in pain  from the tooth extraction?
