Feline gingivostomatitis is a vile and painful disease of cats. It starts early in life and as the disease advances we humans can begin to appreciate the pain and suffering of the affected cats. In Raw Meaty Bones: Promote Health I refer to the condition as:
Screaming cat diseaseRaw Meaty Bones: Promte Health
Another disease peculiar to cats and associated with much pain arises secondary to periodontal disease (a virus is also said to be involved). Commonly the sufferers have teeth affected by neck lesions, but the characteristic signs are areas of angry red inflammation affecting the soft tissue of the mouth. A number of names are used for this vile affliction—the commonest being lymphocytic-plasmacytic gingivitis-stomatitis, an amalgam of words describing the immune cells present in the gums and mouth. Screaming cat disease might be a better name reflecting the noise these patients emit when having their mouths examined.
If, and it’s a big if, we can get to these unfortunate cats early enough then cure is possible as was the case with Dawn Vale’s cat Jiminy.
Eventually, when Jiminy was 10 months of age, Dawn luckily found her way to our Bligh Park Pet Health Centre. You can read her account of the false leads and obstacles placed in her way by the vet profession as she sought to find help for her kitten. Here is her:
Submission 134 to the Australian Parliament, Senate Standing Committees of Rural & Regional Affairs & Transport, as the Committee gathered evidence into ‘Regulatory approaches to ensure the safety of pet food’
In her submission, Dawn Vale asks:
Why are the facts being ignored?
Who benefits from this?
That’s relatively easy to answer. It’s the junk pet food/vet/fake animal welfare alliance who are ignoring the facts.
And guess who’s benefiting from the deafening silence? Yes, it’s the aforementioned criminal collaborators.
Whilst knowing who’s responsible is easy, getting a solution is more difficult.
If and when we get the perpetrators in front of a judge, things may change.
I hope that you can help.
Meanwhile have a look at the video we made about Jiminy’s (lucky, chance) recovery:
Here’s some evidence you may like to consider.
After visiting three separate veterinary practices between 7 July 2017 and 16 August 2017, Dawn Vale was referred to the Sydney Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH).
You can read the SASH report of their misplaced, misdirected efforts here:
In all Dawn Vale spent almost $6,000 with SASH to get nowhere.
When in fact a few rabbit bones or chicken wings could have saved Jiminy the pain and saved Dawn the frustration and expense.
