At wits end, cat afraid

I've got two indoor cats, female tortie, 7 years, male orange tabby, 6 years, both spayed/neutered. Two days ago, the female went in for teeth cleaning and had four teeth removed. When I brought her home, Spike (the male), is now afraid of her. Different smells on her, mouth does not smell bad anymore. I've tried wiping her down with the bed they slept together on, I've given Spike Rescue Remedy and yesterday put on a Good Behaviour pheromone collar. He is hiding from her and if she comes into a room he's in, he crouchs low, ears back, hissing, hackles up and loud growling/yowling either running away or if she leaves, he skulks after her making those noises.

There have been times before when she would get outside and when brought back in, he has not liked it with some hissing but nothing as bad as these last two days.

He has always been sensitive to change but this is the worse I've seen him. I'm afraid it will escalate into fighting and who knows what else.

Am I missing something to try?

The only thing that I know for sure works is that they both smell different. I used to wipe both cats with baby powder and it worked like a charm...you just need a little bit in your hand and give them a few good wipes down the body and it should help. If you dont have any baby powder then try a dab of vanilla under each ones chin and then this should make them smell the same.

Good Luck!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
