Question:

What are your findings?


Assuming that CBC, Chemistry profile, U/A and retroviral tests were all negative what is the next step?

  • Click for the Answer

    Multiple excisional biopsies are indicated. Due to the history, a benign multifocal odontogenic neoplasm was suspected (multiple feline epulides), therefore, extractions were performed of teeth adjacent to proliferate tissue.  Images depict the oral cavity after closure of the biopsy and extraction sites.
