    The One About the Teeth

    The One About the Teeth

    When we talk about lifesaving services, we don't often throw dental services into the mix, but the truth is that so many pet owners don't understand how bad (and how painful) periodontal disease is for their furry family members. Today we're going into our dental services suite to take a look at this program and how we're helping pet owners relieve pain that they didn't even realize their pets had.

    We're headed to a puppy mill rescue operation in Humansville, Missouri, with our friends from Bissell Pet Foundation, National Mill Dog Rescue, Wayside Waifs, and more. It takes a village to create make something of this size come together, and we're taking you behind the scenes.



    Show notes:
