At Grove vets in Ballymena vets recently treated Rupert. Rupert is a happy cat who was feeling under the weather and having trouble with mouth ulcers. Mouth ulcers can happen to cats just like they happen to humans, however, it is sometimes difficult to notice them inside your cat’s mouth. Mouth Ulcers can cause lots of pain, it can make them reluctant to eat and be the sign of something more serious.

Ballymena vet give advice for cats with mouth ulcersHere is what Grove Vets recently shared on their website:
We are happy to report that Rupert is well on his way to a full recovery. He suffered from a debilitating and potentially fatal condition called feline stomatitis.
Feline stomatitis is a severe, painful inflammation of a cat’s mouth and gums. In most cases, the condition causes ulcers to form in the mouth; these ulcers can involve the lips, tongue, gums, and back of the throat. Cats of any age or breed can be affected. (Source)
Rupert had to have extensive surgery on his teeth and gums, Which was all performed here at Grove Vet in Ballymena. That means that he didn’t have the stress of a long journey and his owners knew exactly where to bring him for his treatment.
Checking your cats teeth and mouth is a very important thing to do.

The Nurses Clinic here at Grove Vets can help you to clean your pets teeth and give you advice of you think anything is wrong. Bad breath is often a sign that something is wrong with your cats mouth or teeth so if you notice even a slight change it may be a sign of something deeper.
