I use a 1 ml syringe with coconut oil and water mixture. My cat has FIV with stomatitis and dental problems..gums were very red..Was taking him to the vet every month for antibiotics. I first started using the oil to coat his mouth and gums to soothe them before eating as it was so painful and had problems eating and drinking. It was amazing ...he began to eat and drink and is getting better and better.. Eyes are clear and bright...fur getting softer and hes beginning to groom himself again. I also began him on Lysine. I am now hopeful as he plays with me and loves to be petted and groomed. Had to apply coconut oil directly to gums as well and put a little on a q-tip that he loves to lick. This helped with swallowing it seems.

Coconut oil has helped my cat's stomatitis greatly. I was told at the vets that the only ways to help this condition was either repetitive steroid shots for the inflammation or removal all of her teeth. I put a small amount of coconut oil on her paw, she licks it off and inflammation is gone. Also, she likes the taste and her fur has never looked so good.
