Dental care in pets is often neglected. As a result, many animals come to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter with dental issues. These dilemmas not only put the animal’s teeth and gums at risk; it also can affect the health of an animal’s heart.
In desperate need of a cleaning, Friends funded Lila’s dental procedure to reduce pain and improve her overall health. On Friday, March 23, with dental woes behind her, this little fluff-ball went to her “fur-ever” home!
In 2017, Friends funded $14,000 in dental procedures for 28 shelter pets in need. That is surely something to smile about!
