Help! Cat with Swollen Lip!
I adopted a wonderful kitty two weeks ago. In the last week or so I've noticed my new kitty has developed a swollen lower lip! I'm so worried! I looked it up on the internet and it says it could be a food allergy or maybe he just simply bit his lower lip by accident. Does anyone have any experience with this?
A little info:
I feed my kitty Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diet (the allergy formula). I mix dry and wet food together.
I wash and feed my kitty from a stainless steel bowl. His water bowl is plastic, but would that cause this kind of swelling?
I guess I'll watch to see if it gets worse and if it does I'll take him to the vet, but I don't have a lot of money, and if I can avoid taking him to the vet I would really like to! Please help!
