Well, it seems our recent little rescue has stomatitis. We tried 2 different antibiotics and once he is off them, his awful breath comes back, lymph nodes enlarge, and mouth becomes inflamed again. He has tested negative for felv and fiv twice. He does sneeze from time to time, so he could have calici.
The vet said we could put him on corticosteroids and/or antibios off and on. But he would have to stay on those for the rest of his life. The other option is to extract his teeth. So, we are going to get a referral to a dental specialist.
Has anyone here dealt with stomatitis? If so, what approach did you take and what worked for your cat?
