A few months ago, this sweet girl came to us as a stray. A very sweet older dog, aptly named her Betty White. Upon exam, we discovered that Betty had a severe case of oronasal fistulas; her teeth were so rotten they had caused decay through her gums into her nasal cavity.
We called on our friends at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine to see if they might be able to help. For over 5 years, OAS and UC Davis have worked together closely. OAS has benefited through regular spay and neuter surgeries, cardiology consults and reccommendations when we are faced with severe or chronic illness and disease. With Betty White, UC Davis performed surgery to fix her fistula problem as well as performed a full dental treatment, pulling all her decayed teeth and leaving her in great shape for the years ahead.
Betty White is now successfully recovering in a foster home with plans to be adopted shortly. Thank you UC Davis!
