Cat saliva is very thick

My cat has very thick and gooey saliva. This has been going on for a few weeks. It often forms long drools hanging from his mouth. Ant idea what is wrong and what I can do to help him?


Answer by Kate
Sounds nasty and is definitely not normal. he really does need a vet to take a look inside his mouth. he may have a bad tooth or a mouth ulcer which is causing this drooling.

It must be very unpleasant for your cat also as they are very clean cats as a rule. The drooling could also cause sores to occur around the mouth area, so the sooner it is treated the better.

i hope he is better soon

best wishes Kate
