“Significant pain states arise frequently in oral disease because the pathology is hidden from casual owner observation. Many patients suffering chronic pain do not become anorectic. Feline lymphocytic plasmacytic gingivostomatitis (LPGS), canine stomatitis, chronic ulcerative paradental stomatitis (CUPS), untreated oral trauma and some types of oral cancer are common examples of chronic oral pain.”
