This is Bus, a 7-year-old Chihuahua Terrier Mix. His parents inherited Bus from their son when he was no longer able to care for him. Taking care of a pup wasn’t originally in their plans, but they couldn't pass up this handsome boy.
His parents are disabled and do the best they can for him by setting a budget for his necessities like food, toys, and treats. Recently they started to notice that Bus had bad breath and wasn't wanting to eat or chew anything hard. They knew it had to be something with his teeth.
When they were told Bus would need multiple teeth pulled and that he had an infection that would require medication, his parents knew that they were outside of their budget. They applied with Fur Kids Foundation for help.
According to VCA Animal Hospitals dental disease is one of the most common medical conditions seen by veterinarians; in fact, more than 80% of dogs over the age of 3 years old have active dental disease. When tartar collects on tooth surfaces and touches your dog’s gum line, it is time for a visit with your veterinarian about a dental cleaning.
Fur Kids Foundation encourage you to have your pet’s teeth checked if you see any of the following signs:
Bus had multiple teeth removed and we are happy to report that he is already feeling better!
