Q. My cat has stomatitis. Also has an epulis. Is being watched and treated by vet. What holistic treatment do you suggest?

A. The two most common holistic treatment I am aware of are gold beads implants in the gums and cold laser therapy. The first is actually a procedure done under anesthesia, the second is done without several times a months.

You might need to find a holistic Vet in your area as traditional practitioner will probably not do those at all.
