Feline Stomatitis

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So my cat was diagnosed with stomatitis today

Although I'm happy that it wasn't something more serious, I'm still a bit sad. Does anyone have experience with this? If so, would you have any suggestions in making my kuki's life better living with this disease?

Thanks,

Carrie

I'm sorry. I don't have any experience or advice with this. Hopefully, one of our other members will.

for Kuki.

Although you might think I am totally wacked, I can tell you I am not. You need to buy unprocessed honey from either a beekeeper or a health food store and start brushing your cats teeth with the unprocessed honey. This will help considerably the gum problems and lessen the bleeding and the cats like the taste. I just put it on a regular toothbrush and gently run it along the gums and teeth without pressure. Before the refined sugars are added to it, unprocessed honey has been shown to have remarkable healing capacities. But again, it has to be unprocessed honey not the type bought in the store.

Thanks. I will definitely try to find some unprocessed honey. I will try going to Whole food market to see if they have some there.

hissy- I don't think you're totally wacked....just need to know if you have used honey with stomatitis specifically?

For anyon who's thinking we're both totally wacked, here's an example of the use of "pure" honey...

I never would have thought it for this issue but I have used it for wounds a few times and as a anti viral for me ( tastes better than garlic) ... my vet said a bit of honey in food would do good as long as it is raw ( she says the same for butter)

Nor would I....I'm waaaaaaaaaay tired, but somewhere I have a recollection of stomatitis being auto-immune related (vs bacterial)

I'll check back in the AM

Explaining further as I wasn't in shape to do much explaining before (dealing with my own dental disease...recent tooth extraction )

The honey is NOT a cure, it is just a way for the cat to be a bit more comfortable. Yes, I used it for stomatitis after a vet told me about a recent survey where they applied the unprocessed honey to test cats with different mouth diseases. I was skeptical, but it helped to control the bleeding and reduce the swelling. I did the brushings twice a day. Again, it does not Heal or get rid of the problem it just Helps-

It also depends on how sore the gums are- anything brushed against or applied on sore gums is going to cause a fight of some sort or resistance. But the cats appear to like the taste.

Hissy, I wanted to tell you that I came across your posting about unprocessed pure honey and tried with my kitty.  It worked wonders!  Within a week his gums are so much better.  The only thing I did differently is that I didn't use a brush (because his gums were so inflamed), I just took a Q-tip and gently applied it on his gums. The tissue at the front on his teeth was so inflamed that you couldn't even see teeth, and now, a week later, the inflammation is visibly subsiding.  Thank you for sharing this.
