Gum disease is rated in stages, 1-5, and treatment requires an exam and X-rays to determine the presence (or absence) of disease. You can read more about gum disease in dogs in this WebMD article, The Perils of Gum Disease in Dogs.
Bella’s mom only receives Social Security Income (SSI), and wasn’t sure how she’d cover the costs of Bella’s veterinary needs. She applied to Fur Kids Foundation, and we were happy to help.
Bella no longer has any teeth, but she's feeling much better and the infection has cleared up. This old gal will be keeping her mom company for many more years to come.
Fur Kids Foundation encourages you to have a yearly dental check up for your animals; consider asking for it as part of your pet's annual vet visit.
