My Burmese Cat has twice in one week had to undergo surgery

Customer Question

My Burmese Cat has twice in one week had to undergo surgery on his mouth.The first surgery was to have five teeth removed but the vet did not check if the root of one tooth had been removed and also they left debri in the cavity of another tooth.The cat after the first surgery had the cat pawing at his mouth after he ate to such an extent that he stopped eating.I returned to the vet for another three days when another vet decided to operate again to resolve the problem when during the second operation they discovered the mistakes.At first he appeared to be better but now twenty four hours after surgery he is again pawing at his mouth after eating.The cat is twelve years of age and has been in good health.I am desperate to resolve this problem.I am due to attend another visit the vet again on Friday to check on his progress.
