Q. My cat has something going on in it nouth. Constant tongue out salivia dripping looks bad not grooming herself still eating good im worried

A. Your cat may have an oral infection or dental disease. It is important to have him/her seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible. Severe dental problems can cause damage to internal organs and can make your cat stop eating. He/she may require a dental cleaning, antibiotics, and/or tooth extractions.
