Stomatitis refers to inflammation of the cat’s mouth mucosa, tongue and gums, and causes ulcers, necrosis, and secondary infections. It is characterized by oral mucosal inflammation, ulcers, pain, inability to chew and excessive salivation. Stomatitis can develop into eosinophilic granuloma if it is not treated in time.

The etiology is the same as that of stomatitis. Glossitis can be caused by the mechanical action of foreign bodies, the exposure and removal of new teeth, the scalds that occur when ingesting soup, food and beverages, the corrosion of chemicals, and herpes virus infections.

Viral infection

Among the viral infections that easily induce stomatitis or glossitis, there are HIV infections that are not transmitted to humans but do not have vaccination or treatment methods.
