Feline Oral Resorptive Lesions

Meet Lucky, this little girl was a very brave patient for her dental procedure today.  Unfortunately, Lucky has a condition called FORLs or Feline Oral Resorptive Lesions.  Oftentimes, cats affected by this condition have perfectly clean teeth; however, inflammation is noted at the gum line due to the disease process destroying the roots of the teeth (see image below).  Have you looked in your cat’s mouth lately?!
