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

Subject: [Felvtalk] Mouth ulcer

It's been challenging trying to figure out what was wrong with Tommy's mouth. 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.

Thank you,
