Multiple Epulides in Cats
Cats can get euplides which arise from the ligament surrounding the tooth that holds the tooth in the socket. They often appear much more aggressive that the epulides or peripheral odonogenic fibromas in dogs as seen here in a cat.
In many cat patients the epulides are present in multiple areas in the mouth and often cause pain from contact during chewing or contact with teeth upon closing the mouth.
Treatment of these tumors in cats involves complete removal of the mass and the tooth adjacent to it.
This is the same patient shown above one year following surgical removal of the teeth and tumors.
