10 Signs of Gum Disease in Cats

Gum disease is a problem that affects all cats. Untreated gum disease in cats will damage teeth, and underlying bone, will cause pain, infection and lead to tooth loss.

Key takeaways:

– Signs of gum disease include red gums, bad breath, and drooling, missing teeth, lack of appetite and difficulty eating, and swollen face.

– Rigorous oral hygiene and dental care is the only way to prevent gum disease in your cat. The cat should get two cleanings annually.

– Treatment for gum disease calls for a different approach depending on cause of the gum disease.

In extreme cases like stomatitis, your vet might want to remove all of your cat’s teeth. That cure sounds worse than the disease, but it does provide relief. Because cats rely on their tongue more than their teeth, they can still eat.
