Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums in cats


Avatar n tn What is needed to DEFINITIVELY determine what is causing this cats upper respiratory congestion, nose swelling/sore? Thanks for any GOOD answers.
Avatar f tn I take extremely good care of my teeth so I was surprised when I discovered that the top right side of my gums and my bottom right side of my gums (exact spot), appear to be irritated and sore. I went to bed knowing that the bottom was irritated, but I thought it might just be a canker sore, and when I woke up, the top was irritated too. Any ideas of why this happened or what it could be a sign of? Thank you in advance!
Avatar m tn Not sure what the problem is, but a couple of weeks ago i noticed that when i wake up, my lower cheek where it meets the gums on the left side is sore. Sometimes the top area is sore too. I thought i was biting it in my sleep, but the area is way below where i can bite. also, my gums are a bit red and there is a white spot right where it meets the tooth. I brush, floss, and use mouth wash twice a day. There is no food stuck there.
7879163 tn?1411591644 I've had issues with my gums all my life, but now that I'm pregnant they seem to bother me less. Eating apples usually work, I also use a special toothpaste for sensitive gums... And the floss tip patty1848 mention is good. There's always dental floss in my purse, and after every meal I use it! Take care!
Avatar n tn For over a year I have been experiencing sore and sometimes inflamed and swollen gums. I have seen both my dentist and hygienist and we have been unable to solve the problem or what is causing it. The pain is now there more often than not now, whereas before it was intermittent. I have not managed to pin point what may cause the symptoms.
Avatar f tn My cats lip is infected. He's on his 2nd round of antibiotics but his lip appears to slowly be getting worse. Its not an open sore, it's inflamed with pus pockets. His gums and mouth are fine. Teeth are clean, no tartar.
Avatar f tn When we got Harley he was with a group of cats that were living in the woods. I was able to capture him and two others. All three of them had such bad teeth problems that after a time they had all their teeth pulled except for one cat, they left him four. The vet was unable to determine how old they were because of the poor teeth. I would think it would take maybe four years to have them get so bad, guessing, so that would make Harley 12 now.

Avatar f tn is the freckle dark, and is the cat orange? for some reason, orange cats can get black spots on their gums and nose for no reason. they're harmless.
Avatar m tn they are 2 canker sores connected to each other side by side. And also I have one small canker sore right under one of my bottom front tooth. On the hard surface of my gums. What does this mean? I am freaking out. Is it anything I should worry about? Or just canker sores. I have been getting canker sores on and off, but I dont think ever one on my gums. Dont know if this is related but for a few days now I have been waking up with a dry throat and somewhat of a dry mouth..
Avatar m tn I don't think so....I would call your doctor....are you coughing?? I mean I'm no doctor so I'm not sure but I don't think that's normal. Your blood supply is very high right now so you may simply have an irritated throat or mouth sore that's bleeding more than it normally would...but I would call the doctor.
Avatar f tn Otherwise, it could just be how he walks now, and not a pain issue. Cats use their claws to aid in gaining footing/traction. If I lost a toe, it would change how I walked since there would be a change in my footing.
Avatar f tn I had a cavity with my son, and in my early pregnancy it hurt SO bad I had to get an antibiotic for it, also sore or sensitive gums, and bleeding gums are common during pregnancy.
Avatar m tn sorry there is nothing safe you can put in your cats mouth for treating any sores....please don't try anything. your cat really needs to see a Vet asap...she/he very likely has a dental problem, this is very common with cats esp. as they age. what do the gums look like? if there is alot of reddness its called gingivitis there can also be another problem thats not visible by looking it has to be seen on xrays this is called FORL's....and very painful!!!!
