February is National Pet Dental Health Month, while the accompanying educational campaign extends year-round.
The “Pets Need Dental Care, Too” campaign provides materials to help veterinary teams promote better oral health for companion animals.
To mark National Pet Dental Health Month, the AVMA produced a video on periodontal disease for release in late January on YouTube at www.youtube.com/AmerVetMedAssn
. The video features Dr. Cindy Charlier of Fox Valley Veterinary Dentistry and Surgery in Illinois.
Hill’s Pet Nutrition continues to provide free “Pets Need Dental Care, Too” campaign materials and support for veterinary clinics. Veterinary teams can request support materials by contacting their Hill’s representative or by calling (800) 354-4557.
