Lisa - I battled Stomatitis - -inflamation in the mouth- with one of my FeLV kitties - also named Tom . He would would run from his food bowl in pain because it hurt to eat. We used antibiotics & steroids.
I'm not saying that's what this is, but I would think they would use the same treatment.

A couple months back, I wrote to this group about Tommy, my FeLV+ boy, batting at his mouth. At first we thought he might have a bad tooth, but all of his teeth look okay. Yesterday, he went to see his holistic vet again because he's been losing weight. He has lost about a pound since January and I was getting concerned. It seems that he has an ulcer on the roof of his mouth. How we all missed it (his holistic vet, the dental specialist, and I) is beyond me. But at least we know it's there now. Tommy seems like he WANTS to eat, but is afraid to because it will hurt him. He walks to the food bowl, smells it, and walks away. We are waiting on blood work results to rule out kidney issues, etc. Just was wondering if anyone has any experience with such an ulcer, and any suggestions for treating it and getting him to eat. He's only 1 1/2 years old, and was doing SO very well up until January.
