Dr. DeForge wants to share with you his protocol for removing oral stomatitis permanently from cats. Stomatitis is the most painful oral condition in cats.

The cause is unknown but with Dr. DeForge's Guided Bone Regeneration Surgery all cats will return to normal with no return to the painful pre-surgical states.

Questions: E-Mail
Continue to care for the cat that brings you unconditional love within the Human-Animal Bond. #DHDeForgeVMD
