Bonnie is a happy-go-lucky girl who loves playing with tennis balls. Bonnie has rarely ever been spotted without a ball... or two... or three in her mouth. She lives to play fetch and tug and find it. When no one is available to play, she takes her balls to bed with her for a nap. She even enjoys wearing Elizabethan collars when necessary so she can still keep her balls close, even when she drops them! One day her family noticed her jaws chattering when she picked up one of her balls. This can be a sign of dental pain, so we scheduled Bonnie for a dental cleaning.
