Gingivitis (gum disease) in Cats and Dogs

Herbal Remedies for Gingivitis.
Local measures are important in the treatment of this acute bacterial disease, characterized by severe erosion of the gingival margins, loss of interdental papillae and extreme halitosis (bad breath). Perhaps most important is the regular use (three or four times daily) of Propolis and/or Calendula (herbal tea) mouth washes (swab it on with a dipped cotton ball, Q-Tip or gauze) to the gingival margins and interdental spaces.

Internally, homeopathic therapy may be of immense benefit. The key remedy undoubtedly
Mercurius solubilis 30c three times daily, especially where the animal's tongue looks heavily coated. Where the tongue is clean, Nitricum acidum 30c three times daily is better indicated.

Where improvement is slow under the influence of the former remedies and there has been much destruction of
gingival tissue from the disease, consider Kali chloricum 30c three times daily.

The same remedies apply to mouth infections in horses. Here is a good
dental care tip for horses.
