• What is Feline Stomatitis?

    5 monthes ago - By Activ 4 pets

    Feline stomatitis is a common, painful and very serious oral inflammation that can affect cats of all breeds and ages, although some breeds such as Himalayans, Persians, and Somalis are more prone to developing symptoms than others. There is no single specific cause associated with stomatitis (also known as chronic gingivostomatitis or CGS), though the buildup of plaque triggers the initial inflammation. With some cases, it is thought there is an autoimmune component to this disease, where the cat's immune system essentially responds to its teeth as though they were foreign bodies.
