Robson Dentistry

Exotic Feline Rescue Center 2019

Dr. Robson was honored to be invited by the Peter Emily International Veterinary Dental Foundation (PEIVDF) to participate in the dental treatment of 11 Bengal Tigers, a Leopard and a Serval cat at the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Center Point, Indiana in April 2019. It was a privilege to be able to work alongside the dentists and staff of this charitable foundation and help with the delivery of the cats much needed dental care. Dr. Robson was pleased to join volunteer veterinary dentists and human dentists for this mission from New Jersey, Nevada, Colorado, Texas, Virginia, Indiana, Illinois and Prince Edward Island (Canada).

Dental treatment proceeds on as the Veterinary Anesthesia Staff from the University of Indiana Veterinary School monitor vitals for our 500lb Bengal Tiger patient.

Exposing a full set of dental radiographs to help diagnose our next patient’s dental needs. As many as 14 might be taken for this in order to fully ascertain needed treatment.
