2. Other common conditions


Feline oral disease, comprising a range of dental and oral conditions, is frequently seen in general practice but is often underdiagnosed. An article in the January issue (In Practice, volume 32, pp 2–7) discussed the management of periodontitis and feline chronic gingivostomatitis. This article outlines the diagnosis and treatment options for a number of other common oral conditions occurring in cats, including feline chronic alveolar osteitis, tooth resorption, trauma and neoplasia.
