Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Would you be able to send me a photo of the affected area at all?
Ok. Generally the mouth tends to heal quickly, so I would cover him with the antibiotics, 50mg twice daily for 7 days. You can also give the meloxicam once daily for his weight. If the area has not healed in 7 days or you notice swelling, discharge or discomfort with the area then he will need to see the vet.
I hope that helps?
If you have an oral formulation of chlorhexidine such as Stomadine or Dentisept gel then yes would could (if he will tolerate it), but that is not essential to do
