Vax’s visit to the dentist!
One morning Team AfriCat found her with a swollen right cheek, not interested in eating and with saliva running from her mouth. We suspected anything from an infected wound, tooth problems or even a snake bite. After monitoring her closely and discussing with our team of associated vets, the most probable cause was the teeth.
At the AfriCat clinic, we found Vax had an inflammation in her top right molar, which needed immediate veterinary attention. She was taken to Elvira’s Vet Practice in Otjiwarongo, where the molar was removed (after 1.5 hours of drilling!!) Vax was put on 7-days of antibiotics and was released back into her enclosure. We have been monitoring Vax closely every day and fortunately, even after her extensive dental work she is recovering very well. She is eating, drinking and looking much happier & healthier.
