Treatment for Stomatitis in Cats
Stomatitis (Lymphocytic Plasmacytic Stomatitis) is an autoimmune inflammatory condition where a cat's mouth develops a hypersensitivity to bacterial plaque. The cat's body forms antibodies to its own tissues and attacks itself. Stomatitis is a very painful condition for your cat and similar to other autoimmune diseases, recognizing the symptoms, early intervention and avoiding triggers (that can set off flare ups) can greatly control the progression of the disease. Some common triggers are exposure to vaccines, environmental chemicals, stress, and food allergens.
- Bad breath (halitosis)
- Red, inflamed gums
- Reluctance to open mouth
- Cat not wanting to eat (anorexia)
- Bleeding from gums or mouth
- Plaque and tartar accumulation
Conventional veterinary treatments for stomatitis can provide short-term temporary relief but long-term the cat's immune system needs support. Steroid shots and antibiotics can help initially but are not a viable long-term solution. A drastic solution is often to remove most of the cat's teeth. Many cat owners report that even after all of their cat's teeth are removed, the cat continues to suffer from red, painful gums. This is because the underlying autoimmune condition has not been addressed. You can help your cat's stomatitis and progression of this autoimmune condition with diet changes and a few home remedies. The sooner you start, the more likely you will see results as this is a progressive condition that gets worse over time. Using natural home remedies along with conventional treatments at the first of sign of inflamed gums will yield the best results as this condition often progresses and worsens over time.
Pumpkin's Stomatitis Got Better
This is Pumpkin who has been using your supplements (Immune Harmony, Power Probiotic, QuentaSAN / NotaSAN and Silver Support Spray), for about 8 months or more. He has Stomatitis, rodent ulcers, and many autoimmune issues. He has not had ANY flare ups since using the products, switching his food, and taking him off steroids which the Vet kept him on. Again, I think you more than anything...He is my angel, and you have given me the chance at giving him the healthy life he deserves. Thank you." - Cassandra, Florida
How To Treat Stomatitis In Cats Naturally
Stomatitis can be a very painful condition, and as with other autoimmune diseases, early intervention using a holistic approach can make a tremendous difference. Holistic treatments (e.g. diet changes and a few home remedies) can be used along with conventional medications prescribed by your veterinarian (e.g. antibiotics and steroids). While the best time to get started is when the kitty is first diagnosed, Ask Ariel has had reported improvement for cats even after they have had a full mouth extraction (FME). Many cat owners will do the full mouth extraction and while initially the cat's symptoms such as pain, redness, drooling improve (because the source of the allergy attack--plaque on teeth is removed), the underlying autoimmune disease (and digestive issues) are still present.
Stomatitis is directly linked to allergies. Stomatitis is also referred to as "tooth plaque allergy" whereby the cat develops an allergy to its own plaque. Thus, it is essential to reduce the cat's allergic reaction and change the cat's diet to eliminate food allergens. Supplements such as the Immune Support Kit, Power Probiotic and AllerEaze can not only support a cat's immune system, but quiet the allergic reaction naturally. These supplements in combination with a hypoallergenic diet can finally give the kitty much needed relief. Why is the source of the "allergy attack" in the mouth? The mouth represents the beginning of the digestive tract so when cats eat foods they don't digest well either due to food allergies and/or poor quality food, it causes a great deal of inflammation, triggering a flareup in the mouth. Reducing inflammation by feeding your cat a hypoallergenic, grain-free, low carbohydrate diet and using supplements to improve digestion can only help. Many cats use our holistic treatment program for stomatitis and have improved digestion, better periodontal health, improved breath, reduced pain and discomfort. You can help your cat by controlling the progression of autoimmune disease using supplements that promote dental hygiene, reducing redness, infection and inflammation.
Max and Sasha's Stomatitis Got Better
“I adopted my 2 kitties, Max and Sasha, who had been neglected in their previous home. I took them to the vet and found out that Max was suffering from a severe case of stomatitis and Sasha also had a mild case of stomatitis. For almost a year, Max suffered through rounds of antibiotics and steroid shots, trying to calm his symptoms just so he'd be able to eat. Then I found AskAriel, where I read the section about stomatitis. I received a food recommendation from Ask Ariel that I was able to find in my local pet store. I also started giving he kitties Power Probiotic for Pets, Colostrum for Pets, Immune Harmony, and QuentaSAN. A year later, the kitties visited the vet and she was thoroughly impressed with Max and Sasha. She said she din't see anything unusual...no redness, no sores, no buildup on the teeth or anything! I now have two of the happiest kitties on the planet! Thanks for such amazing products!" - Angie (with Max and Sasha), Louisiana Use Supplements To Reduce Stomatitis Symptoms And Support Your Cat's Immune SystemThe goal of the supplements is to reduce symptoms such as redness in the mouth, pain and discomfort, infection and inflammation. This can be accomplished with remedies that support intestinal health and immunity that modulate (not overstimulate) the immune system. It is very important to be careful with the supplements you use for stomatitis. There is a misconception that if a cat has an autoimmune disorder, that you need to use supplements to stimulate the immune system. In fact, the opposite is true. When cats have an autoimmune disease, the cat's immune system is overstimulated to such an extent that the cat's body forms antibodies to its own tissues and attacks itself. Thus using supplements that might be helpful for cats with a weakened immune system might actually make the condition worse. Ask Ariel has treated cats with stomatitis, IBD, Pillow Paw, rodent ulcers and other autoimmune conditions with much success as our supplements help your kitty by reducing inflammation and controlling bacteria and viruses naturally.
Immune Support Kit
The Immune Support Kit Is An Effective, Easy To Use Home Remedy For Cats With Stomatitis
Contains three tasteless, natural remedies. These three remedies deliver fast relief for your pet's autoimmune symptoms (e.g. Stomatitis or Pillow Paw) and are easy to administer. They help modulate and support your pet's natural immune response rather than overstimulating it the way many supplements can.
NotaSAN - Natural homeopathic formula that fights infection and supports your pet's immune system. Controls harmful bacteria and restores gut flora balance, improving digestive symptoms and immune function. Gentle, easy to administer and safe for long-term use.
QuentaSAN - Natural homeopathic formula that fights viruses and infection, especially targeting the lung and upper respiratory system. Autoimmune disorders in cats especially often involve underlying viruses so using the NotaSAN and QuentaSAN together is very effective in treating autoimmune disease in pets.
Silver Immune Support - Silver Immune Support is an all-natural, easy to use remedy to help your pet recover from a bacterial infection or viral flare-up. It is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial and well tolerated even by tiny pets.
In addition to the Immune Support Kit, these other home remedies are helpful for cats with autoimmune conditions and stomatitis:
Power Probiotic - The best probiotic for pets! Backed by scientific research, this powerful multi-strain formula promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the mouth and digestive tract - critical for your kitty's immune system. If your cat has been on antibiotics or steroids, the friendly bacteria are killed, further weakening your cat's ability to handle the stomatitis. That is why at first when steroids and antibiotics are given, your cat's mouth is better but eventually the infection returns. Power Probiotic is safe, natural and contains NO FILLERS!
Immune Harmony - Contains a unique patented sterol supplement that provides long-term immune support. Very helpful for pets with viruses, autoimmune disease and cancer. Very well tolerated by cats. Use with other supplements that help to readily relieve autoimmune symptoms, while this remedy helps to support the long-term health of your pet's immune system.
AllerEaze - Many holistic veterinarians refer to the ingredients (quercetin & nettles) as nature’s own Benadryl. Since stomatitis is an allergy to the plaque on the teeth, AllerEaze helps to calm the inflammatory response.
Colostrum for Pets - backed by research and third-party tested, Tegricel Colostrum has been shown to enhance the digestive system and immunity. Many cats like the taste.
Diet For Cats With Stomatitis
Certain food allergens can worsen inflammation. Many cat owners might not realize that many foods (even the highest quality, grain-free, premium diets) are contributing to the stomatitis condition. Dry food, for example, is made with starchy carbohydrates which convert to sugar. Cats are carnivores and the carbohydrates just weaken their immune system, triggering an auto-immune reaction. It can be upsetting to realize that most cat foods contain ingredients that are worsening your cat's condition but there is hope as once the offending foods are eliminated, the inflammation can greatly subside. Cats with stomatitis need a species-appropriate, low carbohydrate, hypoallergenic, carnivorous diet. There isn't a "one diet is best" because each kitty has its own history of health issues. Diet changes are critical for treating stomatitis so please be sure to include your cat’s diet on the order form at checkout. Our nutritionist will include a diet suggestion for your cat on the packing slip that comes with your product directions.
