Periodontal (mouth) Infection - gingivitis, stomatitis
Trench mouth (stomatitis) is a severe gum infection caused by a buildup of bacteria in the mouth. It’s characterized by painful, bleeding gums and ulcers in the gums. Trench mouth is a rapidly progressing form of gingivitis.
Feline stomatitis is a severe, painful inflammation of a cat's mouth and gums. In most cases, the condition causes ulcers to form in the mouth; these ulcers can involve the lips, tongue, gums, and back of the throat. Cats of any age or breed can be affected. Stomatitis is inflammation of the oral mucosa beyond gingivitis. ... Feline calicivirus (FCV) can be isolated from 50 to 100 percent of cats with chronic oral inflammation. A recent investigation found that 88 percent of cats with stomatitis were shedding both FCV and feline herpesvirus-1 (FHV-1) in saliva.
So most likely a viral factor involved, and Cats with FIV and FeLV have more problems with it. Cats with stomatitis are more likely to test positive to herpes and calici viruses then normal cats.
Our of our primary focus would be to heal the gut and digestion at the same time.
Is the result of the colonization of certain pathogenic bacteria in your mouth. This bacterial profile is influenced by the microflora in your gut. The majority of inflammatory diseases start in your (and your pets) "gut". It is a symptom not a disease in itself. It is part of the complete digestive system and likely replicates in the intestines with ulcers too. It's primarily mucosal integrity, or lack of integrity cause and goes with dysbiosis of the digestive tract, poor digestion and increased intestinal permeability, which if left can lead to increased allergies to common environmental triggers. It will inevitably involve adverse bacteria proliferating in the gut, also likely one of those "lovely" DNA viruses like EBV and Feline Herpes etc, so your cat will almost definitely be nutritionally deficient and this is a self-fulfilling aspect, have too many adverse bacteria, possibly a strong virus, increasing intestinal permeability, and poor absorption of any nutrients that the poor thing can actually eat.
Example: a number of pets have been tested positive for Pasteurella is a gram-negative bacteria. Pasteurella multocida found in the mouths of approximately 75-80% of all cats. Cats with the tartar build up and gingival disease have a higher rate of infection than cats with clean teeth. Symptoms are usually a swelling and local infection around the wound, which may lead to an abscess. More serious systemic symptoms can include sinusitis, pneumonia and brain abscess.
What is a good Probiotic?
The first thing I would introduce some good human probiotics daily into the food like "Ultimate FLORA" 150 billion (by Renew Life) I have several probiotics listed in the SCIO, this one was indicated needed from clinical consultation with an acute case of stomatitis. Animal probiotics are expensive, poor quality and shallow spectrum very often so no need to do that, we share similar biomes. Don't get tooling up on differences between animals and humans in regards to the biome .. here is the mechanism ... it's all "one long tube”. Mouth affects the gut, and gut affects mouth .. a bidirectional influence.
The oral microbiome is an important part of the gut microbiome and tending to its balance should a routine part of any good “gut protocol.” Indeed, dysbiosis of the oral microbiome (and a leaky oral mucosa) might be key underlying imbalances in the pathogenesis of systemic diseases, including autoimmune (IBD, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren) as well as cardiovascular disease.
If your cat has an infection in and around teeth and gums, abscess in chin or jaw in gum also use in conjunction the HAMPL Drawing Out 16 formula as we need to get out any underlying infection anywhere in the teeth and gum pockets.
Homeopathics have helped some cases, then depending on the history of the cat, some cats need more nutritional help.Plus Chlorella tablets (crushed) and Vitamin C powder (wholefood vitamin C or liquid liposomal vit C) added to daily meals

Herbal Medicinal Uses
Mouth ulcers, phytochemical compounds, recurrent aphthous ulcer
Using the herbs that have proven of the effectiviness of the anti-inflammatory effect of methanolic extract of G. glabra is done by ..... of many plants, such as Coptis chinensis (coptis or golden thread), Berberis vulgaris, commonly known as Barberry etc.
RAS (recurrent aphthous stomatitis)
To study the effects of total alkaloids (TA) extracted from Rhizoma Coptis Chinensis on experimental gastric ulcer models. Four kinds of experimental ulcer models were established respectively by water-immersion stress, intragastric ethanol, acetic acid erosion, and pylorus ligation. The anti-ulcer effects of TA were evaluated, and compared with that of herbs berberine (Ber) and cimetidine (Cim). TA showed significant inhibitory effects on ulcerative formation induced by water-immersion stress, intragastric ethanol, and pylorus ligation in dose-dependent manner, and showed therapeutic effect on acetic acid erosion-inducing ulcer, in comparison with the control group. The anti-ulcer activity of Ber was less than TA containing equal content of Ber. TA significantly reduced the free acidity, total acidity and total acid output, but didn't affect the gastric juice volume, gastric pepsin activity, adherent mucus quantity of stomach wall and free mucus dissolving in gastric juice. The suppressive activities of TA on gastric acid secretion didn't occur when it was administered into dodecadactylon at a dose of 360 mg/kg wt. Moreover, when compared with Cim, the inhibitory effect of TA on gastric acid secretion isn't proportional to the inhibitory effects on the formation of the 4 kinds of experimental ulcers. TA is a potent candidate in therapeutic drugs for treating gastric ulcer. Its anti-ulcer effective components and mechanism is not only related to Ber and inhibition of gastric acid, but also to other ingredients of TA and mechanism so far unknown. Berberine and its protoberberine alkaloids palmatine, coptisine and aporphinoid alkaloid of magnoflorine have been confirmed to be the major pharmacologically active constituents of Coptidis Rhizoma against H. pylori[14-16]. Berberine, one of the chemical marker of this formula, was also found to possess simultaneous gastrointestine protective and anti-inflammatory activities.
