Feb 15, 2008
Healey, K. A., S. Dawson, et al. (2007). "Prevalence of feline chronic gingivo-stomatitis in first opinion veterinary practice." J Feline Med Surg 9(5): 373-81.

Chronic gingivitis and stomatitis in the cat is characterized by persistent, sometimes severe, inflammation of the mucous membranes in the mouth. To date, there has been no data estimating the prevalence of this condition in cats visiting first-opinion veterinary practices. In this study, 12 practices in the UK took part, providing a sample population of 4858 cats. In this population of cats, the prevalence of chronic gingivitis/stomatitis was 0.7%.
