Fuzzy’s Tale: A Case of Periodontal Disease

Mary noticed her 12 year old Maltese, Fuzzy, was becoming very quiet, sad, and sleeping most of the time.

The veterinarian diagnosed Fuzzy with severe periodontal disease. Fuzzy experienced symptoms including a gum infection, bad breath, and loose teeth. To ease him of his pains the veterinarian pulled a total of 16 teeth and performed a deep cleaning on his remaining teeth and gums.

Fortunately Fuzzy’s recovery was speedy and he returned to his happy self once again. PetFirst is glad to have been there for Mary and Fuzzy as we were able to reimburse them for most of costs of the treatment. 

Fuzzy’s story is very common and we thank Mary for allowing us to share it to help educate others about periodontal disease. Prevention is important, but PetFirst is here to help in times of need.  Health care for animals can be very costly, but with pet insurance from PetFirst, the costs associated with periodontal treatments can be covered. Get a quote today!
