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.
