Feline considerations in dentistry

Often, oral disease isn’t diagnosed or treated as frequently in cats as in dogs. This webinar explores unique features of oral diseases in feline patients—such as feline periodontal disease, chronic gingivostomatitis, and oral tumors.

This session originally was presented at AVMA Convention 2023.

Learning Objectives:  

  • Understand the diagnosis and treatment of feline periodontal disease, feline chronic gingivostomatitis, and feline oral tumors.
