The Academy of Veterinary Dental Technicians will join the AVMA, Hill's Pet Nutrition, the American Veterinary Dental Society, the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry, and the American Veterinary Dental College as they co-sponsor the "Pets Need Dental Care, Too" campaign for the 13th consecutive year. The campaign is part of February's National Pet Dental Health Month.
In early January, Hill's began sending kits to 25,000 veterinary hospitals around the country. The kit contains a program guide with suggestions to help educate clients, logo pins, promotion tips, window clings, and consumer brochures on the basics of pet dental health. Kits can also be requested by visiting www.petdental.com or by calling (800) 892-4621. Veterinarians are encouraged to use the campaign materials throughout the year.
