Lisa, I have a cat who was diagnosed w/stomatitis.  She had stopped eating a
few different times and would cry sometimes when she ate. The vet didn't
recommend a teeth cleaning because of her age.  I started giving her
Petzlife oral gel twice a day for at least a month -- just rubbed it on her
teeth.  Then I just gave it like once a day after that for about another
month.  That was 6 months ago, and she's had no problems whatsoever since.
It also helped another one of my cats who I found as a stray who had a
horrible mouth.  I think it is amazing stuff!  It might be worth a try for
your Tommy.
