hi and welcome to our forum, hope we can be of some help.
first of all it would be virtually impossible to pull a cats tooth without anesthesia, not only for the Vet but also the stress on kitty.
secondly there are no herbs or natural remedies that will be effective with the treatment of this abscess, kitty will need to be on a medication from your Vet. an abscess can be a life threatening issue, please don't hesitate to have a Vet look after this for kitty.
I could give you some idea's on natural remedies to help strengthen his immune system(only) after the surgery if you like, however do be sure and use the antibiotic as prescribed.
Please post again and let us know how things are going OK
Hi, I agree.....there's no way a vet can pull a bad tooth w/out anesthesia. The cat would go completely postal, and the vet would go nuts trying to deal w/ that!
Does your cat have a heart problem, or is your vet afraid to put your cat under due to age? If the reason is age related, you can always find a dentist especially for animals. If it's due to a heart problem, you might still be able to get the tooth pulled. The vet would want an echocardiogram to make sure that the heart is healthy enough to withstand anesthesia.
Either way, I KNOW how tough of a decision this must be for you(been there, done that!). I hope you and your vet can find a solution, because a bad tooth is excruciating.
