    Hi @areen Can you take him to a vet? Lots of stray cats have stomach problems, which leads to gum infections, or are FIV+, which also causes infections and other health issues.

    There is nothing you can really do yourself. He needs to be seen by a vet to find out exactly what is causing his bad teeth.

    Thank you for taking care of him.

    Poor baby - he will need antibiotics from the vet. For follow-up maintenance, tumeric extract and CoQ10 and/or L-lysine may help - local veterinarians usually know what problems are going on in their specific area. Please give us updates on how your kitty is doing!
