elderly dog with bad dentition
March 2, 2020
Our very elderly dog with bad dentition is on this and it has improved her comfort. Since she is 19 years old, anesthesia and dental work is not advised. Our vet prescribed this medication to help with dental infection and she is much more able to eat with comfort.
