My cat seems to have a recurring problem with gum infections. We used steroids last time, but that resulted in raising her sugar levels and her becoming diabetic. We are treating the diabetes with diet, and that seems to work. However, I noticed her gums becoming inflamed again. Is there anything we can do besides going back to the steroids to address the problem with her gums?
Does your cat have a condition know as stomatitis? If so, some recommend removing all teeth and antibiotc therapy. You may want to have your pet checked for feline leuk, feline aids and bartonella. All three can cause gum disease. vetcare
