Canine Chronic Ulcerative Stomatitis

Canine Chronic Ulcerative Stomatitis (CCUS)

CCUS, formerly known as “CUPS,” is a painful disease without a known cause. Affected dogs may have foul breath, drooling, pain when eating, and ulcers where the inside of the lips and cheeks contact the teeth (“kissing ulcers”). The clinical signs may be controlled by meticulous home care, regular professional cleanings, and immune-modulatory medications. Many dogs require selective surgical extraction of teeth in the most severely affected areas. Others progress to requiring surgical extraction of all teeth.
