Hi  Can you all tell me what the stomatitis thing is. I have been reading some of your mail.  My felv pos cat has been finicky the past month.  Is this one of the symptoms of the disease progressing?  Asked one vet and he said he didn't think so.  This was a travelling vet I had to use

Check the mouth for sores. Usually cats will spit out there food or run away after trying to eat because it it painful. If she is looking thin I'd look at her gums to make sure they are pink. Most of mine have died from anemia, which is common in FeLV cats. If any of my cats start not acting

Wow. I love holistic approaches, but I'd be afraid my cats would die from stress related illness before the stomatitis was cured. I have to wrap them in a towel to get meds in them. Do you mix it in their food? I have heard great things about the laser procedure. Beth Don't Litter, Fix Your

Many of the cats I have had drooled after eating or slapped at the side of their mouth with their paw.  The gum on the side that has stomatitis is usually bright red, inflamed looking and the cat does not like his whisker pad or that side of his face touched.  In the beginning cases, they may

Since I wouldn’t be able to give the two FIV+ cats anything orally, especially so much of it, having huge daily struggles, probably getting kicked and bitten….. I will definitely look into the cold laser solution! From: felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org

Sounds like my 9lb. teenage calico!  The vet techs break into tears break out the raccoon handling gloves whenever we get to the office.   (this from a LAP CAT - unless of course you try to administer to her!) They REALLY make it difficult to help them sometimes don't they! --- On Thu,

If the stomatitis is severe and the cat is having trouble eating, really consider heavy duty pain meds like buprenex during the treatment process.  I know that Snowy and I would not have gotten through it all without serious pain management. From: Natalie

Snowy had three separate procedures -- the first to extract teeth, then when that did not solve the problem she had the first laser treatment, and then she went back for a touch-up with the laser.  So we were doing pain meds before, during and after.   Snowy's situation was pretty extreme.  Her

Sounds bad – not sure that I would do extractions…the stomatitis is at the back of the mouth up down. I can’t even guarantee that I could give Sox the pain killers when needed – he is extremely hyper and sensitive, very scared of strangers….poor cat! He’s pretty good with us now, but when I

Yes, you can put it in food. Often putting herbs in cats' food, however, will cause anorexia, so if that occurs, start with a small amount and add more each day. You can also put tuna juice or some other bribe food on top, so they won't smell the herbs. Try just the Coptis Purge Fire. If that
