Who is Acorn
Acorn came to Hector’s in March 2010, aged ten years old. Acorn had lived her whole life in racing kennels and had never known any love or home comforts.
Acorn had a mouth full of infected and rotten teeth with dental disease that had progressed so badly she had a sinus tracking from an infected tooth into her nasal cavity. Acorn must have been in considerable discomfort for some time and the untreated infection was also affecting her overall health.
Acorn had a very extensive dental which involved removing every one of her teeth. Acorn recovered very well from her surgery and clearly felt much better now she was pain free. Acorn was soon enjoying her food without the pain caused by her painful teeth and was soon gaining weight.
Acorn now lives in a long-term Hector’s foster home and is taking every opportunity to enjoy the luxuries of a wonderful home that she had missed out on for far too long.
