Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis (FCGS) has long been regarded as a particularly frustrating condition to manage and can have a large impact on the welfare of affected cats, significantly reducing their quality of life. Often known by the abridged ‘feline stomatitis,’ the condition is far more complex than simply ‘inflammation of the mouth’ and there is much still to learn about the multifactorial aetiopathogenesis. Involvement of a variety of bacterial, viral and environmental factors has previously been proposed leading to chronic antigen stimulation, an aberrant immune response and severe inflammation of the oral mucosa in affected individuals, often necessitating full mouth extractions.

Join an international multidisciplinary panel of specialists with expertise in internal medicine and feline dentistry for discussion of the potential aetiopathogenesis of this complex disease, diagnosis and differentiation from other feline oral conditions and the latest on evidence-based treatment strategies. Attendees will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share their own experiences of this frustrating condition. 


Dr. Heidi Lobprise is a Veterinary Dentist that has been a member of the Main Street Veterinary Hospital medical staff since April of 2010. Born in Gary, Indiana, she grew up in Orlando, Florida and then Richardson, Texas, where she graduated from Richardson High School.

Dr. Lobprise says that she knew from age seven that she wanted to spend her life as a veterinarian simply because she has always loved animals. She began her journey toward her current career at Texas A&M University where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science in 198 and received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1983. Her areas of special professional focus include dentistry and senior care. She is also a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC.) Dr. Lobprise is the author/co-author of several dental and senior care texts and has lectured internationally.

She has served on a short-term mission trip to Mongolia through Christian Veterinary Missions and hopes to travel to other destinations. Dr. Lobprise and her ‘hubby-wubby', Joe Kautz, a gunsmith, have a Greyhound named Buddy and two cats named George and Spot. Dr. Lobprise’s daughter Holly, is a financial analyst currently in NYC but moving to South Africa.

Dr. Jamie G. Anderson is a University of California, Davis graduate, having received a BS in Animal Science, her DVM degree and an MS degree in Comparative Pathology. As well she received a BS degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. This background helped to spark her interest in veterinary dentistry. Her specialty training was performed at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. She completed an internship and back-to-back residency programs in Dentistry and Small Animal Internal Medicine. Dr. Anderson is board certified in both specialties and practiced in academics and in private specialty and general practice. Dr. Anderson’s clinical research interests have long been in oral medicine, and in particular the immunologic inflammatory basis of diseases such as Feline Chronic Gingivostomatitis and Canine Chronic Ulcerative Stomatitis.

Dr. St. Denis is a practicing feline medicine specialist, board certified with the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in the specialty of feline practice. In her early career she trained in molecular biology and immunology, working in the field of cancer research. In 1999 she graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College, going on to own and operate the Charing Cross Cat Clinic from 2007 to 2020. Dr. St. Denis is the 2020-2021 president for the American Association of Feline Practitioners and an active volunteer in the organization, participating in many committees and task forces. Dr. St. Denis is a consultant on the Veterinary Information Network in feline internal medicine.

I am a Specialist in Veterinary Dentistry, which means I am specialised in treating conditions of the mouth and teeth of all animals. 

I became a veterinary surgeon after six years of studying at Edinburgh University and in 2010 after several years as a general practice vet, I decided to specialise in dentistry, which meant I then dedicated all of my professional time to oral and dental problems.

In 2012, I passed the memberships examination in Small Animal Dentistry and Oral Surgery for the dentistry chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS)

In 2016, I passed the challenging European Veterinary Dental College examinations to become an EBVS® European Veterinary Specialist in Dentistry and was granted RCVS Specialist status the following year.
