Success Story

Bon Jovi is a 3-year-old cat surrendered to Baypath. Although he was adored by his family, they fell on hard times and were no longer able to care for Bon Jovi, including paying for much-needed extractions due to dental disease. Unfortunately, we find that many of the dogs and cats that come into our care have endured severe periodontal issues. Far too many have not received proper nutrition and care throughout their life, leading to Grade 3 and 4 dental disease. At these stages, toxins can be absorbed into a dog or cat’s bloodstream, causing serious organ damage. Extractions oftentimes are the only way to prevent infection and alleviate considerable pain.

Thanks to our Extraordinary Medical Fund, we were able to get Bon Jovi the dental care he required.

When he first came to us he was understandably shy as he was experiencing great discomfort in his mouth. Now he is healthy and thriving in his home!

“Bon Jovi has definitely bonded with us. He loves playing with any shadows and chases his tails. He runs across the house like a racetrack. He loves being with our 8-year-old daughter, Sophie.” - Hongmei Zhang, Bon Jovi’s adopter
