Customer Question

My cat lost his appetite then I noticed he has a rotten smelling chin, and continuously drools. I live in a remote community where a bet only flies in once every few months. Any ideas?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Can you check Aslan's mouth?
Any sores, redness, ulcers, or lumps in his mouth, under his tongue or on his gums? (you can post a photo online & past the web link here if you would like me to see what you are seeing?
Does he seem to want to eat but then turns away like he cannot?
Is he drinking?
Has he had any vomiting, retching, gagging, or lip licking?
