Spirit Marshall is a 5 year old neutered chihuahua boy. Spirit’s mom, Valerie Marshall, contacted AWAG because she was concerned with Spirit’s bad breath and the heavy tartar on his teeth. Spirit was taken to Monterey Animal Hospital where he was sedated and anesthetized for his dental cleaning. Spirit had a “baby tooth” that had not fallen out so that was removed and his teeth where scaled and polished. Spirit’s mom was also educated on how to brush Spirit’s teeth. With the tooth and tartar gone there will be less bacteria and inflammation, leaving Spirit healthier and happier.
