My 17 year old cat suddenly cant chew dry food or her hard treats that she loves!! she tries but it's as though she cant chew anything hard. she is eating the canned food and drinks water. just noticed this yesterday, saturday! can't call the vet till tomorrow morning.....any ideas?
It's not unusual for senior cats to have dental issues crop up. She could have a sensitive tooth or perhaps a sore inside her mouth that causes discomfort with hard food.
I don't think you have cause for concern. The fact that she is still eating her softer canned food and drinking water is good news. Once your vet checks her mouth and discovers the irritant, they will suggest a solution depending upon their findings.
Hopefully, it's a quick remedy.
