White tongue in a kitten.

Species: Cat
Breed: Persian X
Age: Less than 3 mon
Kitten 6weeks old looks like a 4 week old. Sootie has a white tongue? Is it anemic?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

A white tongue is never a good sign in any animal. My guess is that this likely is anemia (low red blood cells).

There are many different causes. It sounds like Sootie should have a vet visit really soon.
