Stomatitis in Cats
Stomatitis sounds like something to do with the stomach… but it is not. Inflammation of the mucous lining of any of the structures in the mouth, which may involve the cheeks, gums, tongue, lips, and roof or floor of the mouth. The word “stomatitis” literally means inflammation of the mouth. (reference: Medical Dictionary)
Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums. Bleeding is a primary symptom, and other symptoms include swelling, redness, pain, and difficulty in chewing. (reference: Medical Dictionary)
Journey of a Cat’s Private Chef
Lily and Lucy both have red gums. There has been improvement since I first started on this quest. Lily’s breath improved. Their coat is silkier. Still, there wasn’t enough progress.
By appointment time for both cats, I made a recent purchase of cat food. Ugh.
