Little Wendy, a 13-year-old dog, recently needed 20 teeth extracted at Second Chance Community Vet Hospital in Worcester.
With Phinney’s help, Wendy underwent a full-mouth extraction to prevent more infection and improve her quality of life. We are so happy we were able to help little Wendy and her mom, Catherine, who couldn’t afford the surgery on her own.
Phinney’s also recently came to the aid of Molly, a 12-year-old Puggle mix. Her person noticed that Molly was struggling to eat. Food would fall to the back of her mouth. This made little Molly make some strange noises, which sounded uncomfortable and possibly painful to her.
Tests at the vet’s office revealed several infected, loose teeth, and Molly needed immediate radiographs and extractions. While her person kept up on routine check-ups, she could not afford dental surgery. We are so pleased that we were able to help so Molly got the care she needed!
Wendy and Molly are just a couple of the many lovable pets we have been able to help through Phinney’s Emergency Program.
