Secretory glands are among the basic elements of oral and dental health of cats. The glands also affect the functioning of your cat’s entire digestive system and the fight against diseases.

Cats generally have difficulty eating and general swelling of the face can be a sign of oral problems. Intraoral problems cause cat slobbering after a certain period of time. When cat mouth problems are not diagnosed early, infection may increase and cause serious health problems.

Excessive salivation and saliva production is a problem that should be determined if the mouth and lip structure is formed independently of the anomalies or external factors and persists for long hours.

Causes of saliva in cats:

  • Stomatitis; inflammation of mucous membranes in the mouth
  • Gingivitis; gingival inflammation
  • Rotten; teeth
  • Wounds in the mouth or tongue, aphthae
  • Insect stings
  • Foreign body, tumor in mouth or trachea
  • Chewing-ingestion loss due to a neurological cause
  • Nausea; eaten bad food, infectious diseases or kidney-liver diseases.
