cat teeth

My cats, Boots and Spunky, were due for their annual shots. I lost my job, so money was a concern. Spuny is healthy, but Boots has OCD and needs to see a vet to be on Prozac. I tooks Boots to his regular vet for his shots, but wanting to save money, I took Spunky to a Petco clinic for his shots. The vet looked in his mouth and noticed a little tartar on one of his back teeth. Then without even asking me, she took a clipper and snipped the point of the tooth off to get rid of the tartar! Then she clipped the tooth on the other side so his teeth would match. She said, "There, now you got a free dental". I didn't know what to think. Did she do my cat a favor?

I think it was totally wrong of the 'vet' to just snip his teeth like that. The vet should have asked you first.

The vet might think he did something but for the cat, I think it's not a big thing.

anyways, if your cat has too much tartar or cavities, the teeth fall off or need to be pulled out during teeth cleaning when it gets too bad. I don't think it really solves anything to clip the tooth, as long as the kitty can eat normally, there's really no problem in my opinion health wise.
And that vet should have asked you or told you BEFORE!
