I had to take my Cat to the Vets today. I noticed Kally Kat has a inflamed gum that was very red & raw looking on one of her lower tooth.This just happened last wk.
She tells me it's a condition called Feline Oral Resorptive Lesion. I never heard of it before, until today. Oh, I felt so bad when she told me that she may very well lose that tooth & some others too.
Kally Kat has Calicivirus & has had all of her shots up to date. The Vet says it's not from the Calicivirus.
I brush her teeth & massage her gums daily with my finger as she doesn't mind that at all. So, for now I want to read & learn more about this.
Can any of Catsters member who have any experience with some cats having tooth loss? I'm so upset about this. My Vet says there is nothing that I did wrong, just continue brushing her teeth for now 3 X's a wk. & stay away from the sore gums.
She gave me a pouch of Vetri-Lysine Plus Soft Chews. Kally needs 2 of them a day. Thank you Catsters!
