My concern is that your cat remains painful post-extractions. If teeth were removed due to stomatitis, the stomatitis takes time to abate after extractions and in some cases doesn't abate although extractions were performed. Is your cat currently being administered analgesia in the form of a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug such as meloxicam or a narcotic such as buprenorphine? Either may suppress appetite while providing pain relief.
