Faucitis in a stray cat

August 17, 2010
Stray cat can eat as ulcers heal 80% as evident from digital photography taken today. Midline tongue ulcer re-appears. Ulcers at base of right side of tongue seen in one of the images.

Cat was more cooperative but he got fed up after I took over 50 images. It was difficult to take his inner mouth from a table in the waiting room with outside sunlight at 11 am. I did not shine a strong light into the mouth.

Faucitis stray cat
August 10, 2010 review of eosinophilia in a stray cat.
Salivation is the presenting sign. Ulcers in fauces and lower tongue 2 weeks ago. Treated and went home. Came back again as the cat started to salivate.

Ulcers at fauces reduced by 80% today. Cat gentle but dislikes mouth being opened. Wanted to scratch intern Ms Lai. Will the condition relapses? Is there a permanent cure? Not according to the cat experts.
