Alright well he really wants to eat, but is still weary about eating wet and dry. He likes the whiskas cat milk as we are giving him that and also temptation treats. He has had about 14 of them from the morning till i left for work and that was at 3pm.

When i watch him eat, its almost like he can't chew and only has 2 teeth, his fangs, because the treats,food fall back out of his mouth and he has to pick them back up and try chewing on them again, but he moves his head back and forth like someone who is trying to only eat using certain teeth and not others. He can't eat normal like he was. I thought kittens got through teething easily.

Did your vet get a good look at your kitty's teeth? The adult teeth should push the baby teeth out, so really there should be adult teeth coming in.

If he can't eat kibble, please stop giving him some, he could choke. If he won't eat canned you can crush some kibble and sprinkle it on top of his canned.

Well i think the painkiller helped because he is eating again. I think some teeth finally came in because hes chewing much more normal than before. I think the problem was before he couldn't chew with his back teeth since they weren't in yet or were hurting because he would contort his face and he would try to get the food to one side or the other side of his month and it would fall out. Gave him some whiskas milk and then moved on to some pouch food we were spoon feeding him. Its been 2 days now he is eating, so he is improving.

I thought kittens handle teething better than human babies? Guess not as both vets figured his teeth would be the last reason he wouldn't eat. Ill keep you updated as anything can change, but he has improved.

Mike: I have had many, many foster litters of kittens who have been on raw diets and able to chew bones with NO problems, it sounds like there is something wrong with the teething of your kitten. There should be adult teeth that push the baby teeth out so there should always be teeth to chew.

Are you able to look inside of his mouth?

Thank you for keeping us updated, I really appreciate it.

I know this is a very old thread, but my kitten is exhibiting the same symptoms. I've been to the vet and spent hundreds on tests and xrays with no answer. What wasthe outcome for your kitten?

Sorry your kitten isn't feeling well, jallen33. As you say, this is a very old thread--I wonder if you started a new thread that describes what's going on with your cat you might get more responses? Worth a try, anyway!
