George, an older female cat, was rescued by a neighbor after her original owner passed away. Her new owner brought George to Jarrettsville Veterinary Center because she seemed to be in pain when eating, often pawing at her mouth.
George did in fact present with severe gingivitis, and had to be sedated in order to complete a physical exam of her mouth, because it was so painful.
George underwent a Stage 2 scale and polish and had several teeth extracted.
