Thank you for using our service. It sounds like your cat may have feline herpesvirus, which can cause bumps on the lips and other areas of the face. This virus is highly contagious among cats, so it's important to keep your cat away from other cats if possible.
Treatment for feline herpesvirus typically involves medications to help reduce the severity of symptoms and prevent complications. These may include antiviral medications, antibiotics if a secondary bacterial infection is present, and medications to help control inflammation. It's important to follow your veterinarian's treatment plan carefully to help your cat recover as quickly as possible.
If your cat is showing other signs of illness, such as lethargy, loss of appetite, or difficulty breathing, it's important to have them seen by a veterinarian as soon as possible.
If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
