I have a FIV+ cat who has been given Convenia shots

Customer Question

I have a FIV+ cat who has been given Convenia shots for about 5 1/2 years. He has been receiving steroid about 2X a year. February 2016 he was diagnosed with Stomatitis. Since then he has had 2 steroid shots and he has had his teeth cleaned.
Is there any new developments in treating an FIV+ cat with stomatitis in the past 5 years

Hi, I can help you with your question today. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer for this condition. Treating FIV will not resolve the stomatitis, so anti-virals are not helpful here. Has your regular vet ever discussed tooth extractions with you?
