Ok, so my poor baby kitty has now developed a serious case of bad breath. Of coarse I know I need to take her to the vet, but I will need time to mentaly prepare myself because she is 17 has CRF & the last time we were there her blood count was a touch low, so of coarse my fear is that it will be very low & I will be faced with the decision that I dread the most. I was on the CRF web site & it talks about how cats with CRF often have a specific smell to their breath. Is anyone farmiliar with that smell? Also I watch her mouth regularly for mouth ulcers & I know the vet & I talked about giving her pepcid if she was having problems eating, which she still seems to be doing OK with, but my question is could the bad breath be from ulcers in her throat that I can't see, or if she had ulcers there would she also have them in her mouth? I don't think there are any vets here, but I know lots of you have had CRF kitties. I'm just wondering if anyone knows anything about this. It seems like I think I'm doing better at the prospect of losing her, but then when I'm faced with a decline in her health I realize that I'll never really be ready to loose her.
