By the way, thanks for the link to the article on stomatitis. I've read up on it before. The article suggests that removal of teeth may be whats in order for my kitty. This is all getting quite expensive, so I'm just hoping that it will all be worthwhile. I am new to this forum, so I am going to have to figure out how to start a new thread so that I can talk to more of the members here. Thanks again for your replies...
