Gus a little less canine than others

Gus a shorthaired felineGus is a distinguished and delightful 15 year old male castrated domestic shorthair cat. Unfortunately, he and his previous owner have parted ways, but Gus is ready to start the next chapter of his long and thrilling life! Like any good tuxedo cat, Gus arrived at the SPCA of Tompkins County in style. However, some dental disease, missing teeth, and a troublesome canine tooth were bringing him down. Not only was this surely uncomfortable for him, but it could have led to bigger problems down the line- and Gus has too many important plans to spend his valuable time worrying about brushing his teeth. Luckily, the veterinarians with Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program at Cornell were able to give Gus a complete dental exam and cleaning, and were able to remove the questionable canine tooth. Now, Gus is all set and ready to set off on his next adventure!
