Chloe's mom made the responsible choice by adopting her from a shelter. She wasn't aware how bad Chloe's teeth were at the time. We were able to help Chloe get the care she needed, which included extracting all of her diseased teeth. She is now a healthy, happy senior lady.
Dental disease is painful, and shortens an animal's life by causing damage to organ systems. Unfortunately, it makes many pets difficult to adopt, as it is often cost-prohibitive for rescues or adopters to do the procedures, especially in advanced cases like Chloe's.
