Buddy keeps getting gum infections and the vet thinks he might have Bartonella. I had him tested yesterday and it takes 3 weeks to get the results. It's very expensive to have them tested but it is treatable with antibiotics. It is contagious to other cats plus humans can get cat scratch fever from it.
