Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis/Caudal Stomatitis

Stomatitis occurs as a generalized inflammation around the teeth and often affects the back of the mouth. Many therapy options exist, but extraction of the teeth behind the canines has traditionally resulted in the most consistent success.

Extraction results in cases of feline chronic gingivostomatitis:

  • 60% are cured
  • 20% require further therapy (medication, laser)
  • 20% experience little improvement
