I wish I was the leopard at Hogle Zoo. I have an enormous toothache in a molar
that probably needs a root canal or pulled. I don't have the money. If I was a
zoo animal it would be done with fanfare in a new state of the art animal vet
center! There are a lot of people in Utah without dental insurance or lack of
funds who cannot see a dentist. State programs (medicaid )cut their funding for
elderly and disabled adults in Utah too. Pregnant women on Baby your baby are
loosing their dental insurance this legislative session. Sad that animals get
better treatment than humans!
who are dependent on human care are receiving the care that they need. I hope
Vladamere's root canal was successful and that he won't need further ones. As
for we humans, we can brush and floss and see our dentists regularly. A person
can even make arrangements with a dentist to make payments for dental care if
need be. Don't just throw your hands up and say that you can't get care. Check
out some options first.
