Tiki Tiger

Atlanta Veterinary Dentistry with Dr. Beckman  and Annie Mills simply blew me away.  From the minute we walked in the door we knew our cat Tiki was in good hands.  The aroma of a scented candle filled the room and beautiful art work of nature and animals added to the feeling of zen and calm I felt inside.

Annie greated us warmly and took us into a lovely room filled with southwestern decor to wait for Dr. Beckman.  And when he walked in the door his smile radiated with warmth and compassion.  He told us the options for Tiki’s chipped tooth and answered any questions we had.  It took less than two hours to perform the root canal and the price was even less than first estimated.

Tiki came through with flying colors and was a hit with all the staff.  We  recommend this practice highly and could not have been more impressed with the service.  It’s an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Oral Tumors in a Cat in Southwest Florida

Multi Focal Fibrosarcoma-02727Oral Tumors in a Cat in Southwest Florida. This 2 1/2 year old female cat presented with multiple oral masses.

Multi Focal Fibrosarcoma-02726

Multi Focal Fibrosarcoma-02719Multiple biopsies were taken.A pathologist with special interest in oral pathology from Colorado State University reviewed the findings and images. The final diagnosis was multifocal oral fibrosarcoma.

Multi Focal Fibrosarcoma-2

Reports of management of mutifocal FSA do not exist in the veterinary literature. Immediate palliation of discomfort and elimination of trauma to the masses was recommended. Excision of the masses, extraction of associated teeth and contour of adjacent bone was the chosen conservative treatment.

These images were taken 18 months postoperatively.  The owner reports no recurrence at two years postop.  Although fibrosarcoma represents the second most common malignant oral tumor in cats, a search of reports of multifocal oral fibrosarcoma in cats revealed no findings.

It is interesting to note that the clinical outcome did not fit the histopathological diagnosis, so other possibilities might include multiple epulides in the cat as described below.

The canine teeth are contacting the gum (gingiva) resulting in defects in the tissue.

Incline planes were created with a 12 fluted bur in the thick attached gingival tissue being careful not to reach bone.  A composite extension was placed on the lingual aspect of the mandibular canines to engage the tissue and guide the canine teeth to the proper position.

4 weeks later the movement is complete and the composite is removed.
