Did you know that oral health issues are the most common health problems reported in dogs? The fact is, as many as 80% of dogs develop some form of periodontal disease by the age of three. As such it represents a significant proportion of the workload in practice.
For the oral health of your patients, a daily home dental-care program—including tooth brushing—is an important step for owners to take in between annual visits to your clinic. As part of that daily program, dental chews like PEDIGREE® DentaStix® can also provide a simple and effective way of helping clean a dog's teeth.
To raise awareness we've set up www.oralcarefordogs.com.au, an online resource tool for Vets, Vet Nurses and Vet Students. The information featured on the Vet hub encourages communication about animal dental health management in veterinary practice, and in particular, periodontal disease.
PEDIGREE® DentaStix® also proudly sponsors oral care health initiatives and events.
Sign up and provide dental checks to your favourite furry friends in the month of May and we'll reward your clinic.
How is your clinic rewarded?
