Feline gingivostomatitis - things that we all need to know!

To end our second day, we will tackle the topic of feline gingivostomatitis. Feline gingivostomatitis or stomatitis is known as a severe and debilitating chronic inflammatory disease of the oral cavity affecting the gum tissue (gingiva) and the oral mucosa. Fortunately, it is not very common and its prevalence is known to be about 0.7-12% of the general population. At the beginning of this presentation, we will discuss the common presenting signs and the potential differential diagnoses of other oral inflammation that occur in our feline patients along with the appropriate diagnostic work up. Treatment options such as full mouth vs. partial mouth extractions along with other adjunct therapies such as immunomodulatory medications, pain management, and laser therapy will be discussed. This condition can be very frustrating for both clinicians and pet owners, making client communication and managing client expectations crucial. A brief presentation of a clinical case will also be provided at the end of the lecture. Attendees are also encouraged to share their experiences in managing this disease at the end of the presentation.
