 It's time to promote pet dental health

Posted Dec. 15, 2004

To help you promote good oral care for pets, the AVMA, Hill's Pet Nutrition, the American Veterinary Dental Society, the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry, and the American Veterinary Dental College are cosponsoring the "Pets Need Dental Care, Too" campaign for the eleventh consecutive year. 

A free campaign kit—available while supplies last by calling (877) 883-5251, contains a Program Guide filled with tips on promoting dental care in your practice, along with buttons, brochures, a window cling, and tent cards that all remind clients of the importance of regular, professional dental care for their pets. The materials may be used during National Pet Dental Health Month in February and throughout the year.

The dental campaign Web site, www.petdental.com, also has downloadable materials on pet dental care and information that is specific to the needs of pet-owners, the media, and the veterinary hospital staff.
