It all started with a senior rescue dog
Saved from a shelter at 10 years old, Tinzley had multiple health conditions that all traced back to neglected dental care. Luckily, she was adopted by Dr. Emily Stein, a UC Berkeley and Stanford-trained scientist with an extensive background in microbiology and immunology… and a soft spot for older dogs.
She knew immediately that oral bacteria were the source of Tinzley’s eye and bladder infections, skin irritations and lack of energy. After 4 months of antibiotics, 21 tooth extractions and thousands of dollars in vet bills, Tinzley was finally healthy again. All these issues stemmed from the connection between the mouth and body.
