February 2024 is Pet Dental Health Month and Animalcare, the UK veterinary pharmaceutical company, has released a range of materials to help veterinary practices raise awareness regarding the importance of maintaining good dental health in pets.
Animalcare, which distributes a range of dental products, including the Plaqtiv+ oral home care range and OraStripdx thiol tests, has created a new waiting room board kit for veterinary staff to create an appealing visual reminder of the importance of prompt diagnosis and management of dental disease, and implementation of a tailored dental home care regime.
Practices will also benefit from a Pet Dental Health Month social media pack to use on their social media channels.
During the month, a range of dental CPD offerings will be available, plus prizes for the most creative and engaging waiting room displays.
Will Peel, Animalcare marketing manager says: “According to Vet Compass data (RVC), periodontitis is the most common disease seen in cats and dogs.
“However, it can often be difficult to identify and pet owners can often disregard the signs of dental problems, assuming that their pet’s bad breath is normal.
“Our popular Lunch and Learn sessions have demonstrated to us that veterinary staff recognise the importance of raising dental health awareness, so we’ve created this range of materials specifically to support veterinary practices and their patients.”
Animalcare’s Plaqtiv+ range of dental products includes Plaqtiv+ Oral Spray, Plaqtiv+ Toothpaste
Plaqtiv+ Water Additive, Plaqtiv+ Wipes and Orastripdx.
