Zoey is in need of dental care which will require anesthesia.
Bad dental hygiene is more than just stinky breath. Without proper dental care, dogs develop plaque which builds up into tartar and in turn leads to periodontal disease (gum disease). In this inflammatory infection, bacteria attacks the gums, ligaments and bone tissue that support the teeth. This can be painful, lead to tooth loss, and inhibit the dog’s ability to eat, and creates pain and stress. Left untreated, bacteria from the infection can eventually enter the dog’s bloodstream and cause life-threatening complications in his vital organs. The bacteria secretes gross toxins that can enter the bloodstream and spread to the heart, kidneys and liver.
Please HELP us give Zoey the comfort and care she deserves!
