Stomatitis is a frustrating and painful condition, a severe inflammation of the oral cavity in cats in which the affected cat essentially becomes allergic to her own teeth. The outward signs of this condition are red, inflamed, and often ulcerated gums, and this can be very painful for the cat. The exact cause of stomatitis is not known. The most commonly held theory is that stomatitis is caused by an abnormal reaction of the immune system. Some cats appear to be hypersensitive to their own plaque, and even small amounts will cause the immune system to mount an exxagerated inflammatory response by sending lymphocytic and plasma cells into the cats’ gums and oral tissues.

Play is vitally important to a cat’s mental and physical health, and it’s especially important for indoor cats.

While some cat parents are taking their cats outside for leash walks, the average indoor cat doesn’t get much exercise, and we know that exercise is an important component of vibrant health.Continue Reading

After Allegra was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism at the beginning of this year, I immediately started her on Assisi treatments. Ultimately, all disease is caused by inflammation in the body, and since she was also overgrooming and showed some occasional mild possibly IBD related symptoms, it just made sense to do whatever I could do reduce inflammation and stimulate general healing.Continue Reading
