Pet dental care to be highlighted in February
"Dental Care Shouldn't Be Like Pulling Teeth" is the poster caption for next month's Pets Need Dental Care, Too national public awareness campaign, co-sponsored for the sixth year by the AVMA, American Veterinary Dental Society, and Hill's Pet Nutrition Inc.
During February - National Pet Dental Health Month, veterinarians are encouraged to make an extra effort to educate their clients and community on the importance of regular, professional dental care for our canine and feline companions.

New dental education materials
The campaign is targeting the media with dental campaign press packets and interview opportunities with AVDS spokespersons who will volunteer their time and expertise in February. Also, for the first time, the campaign is reaching out to human dentists and asking them to remind their patients that, like people, our pets' oral health depends on regular, professional care.
