Mouth Ulcers in cats

by Rhonda Head
(Long Beach CA)

I have a feral cat I feed. We trapped him, his mouth was bleeding, got his teeth cleaned, blood work done. He has Stomatitus, and FIV. The stomatitus requires steroids which will weaken his immune system more. Will Propolis help as an anti viral for him and help to heal his mouth? If so, what dosage, he is around 12 and maybe 9 lbs.

Angela's Comments:

Hi Rhonda,
Propolis is well established in studies to be a very potent anti-viral. It may also help heal wounds, also indicated by several studies. As for dosing, you'll need to use an alcohol free tincture or open up a capsule that has powder in it. 3 - 5 drops of a tincture should be sufficient or 1/4 of a 500 mg capsule to start. If tolerated well you could look to increase this dose over time. I always recommend you speak to a veterinary professional about what you are giving the animal before proceeding.
