To mark National Dental Pet Health Month in February, Animalcare are on the look-out for a Dental Month Superstar Practice.
We’re launching a contest to see how creatively practices can use dental pack resources we have created to highlight National Dental Care Month and engage with their clients about the importance of oral health. The pack contains a range of posters and point-of-sale items which can be used to brighten up a waiting room, while offering clients useful information about the oral health of their pets.
The winning practice will receive a Swan Retro Pump Espresso Coffee Machine for its team to enjoy.
Commenting, Animalcare Brand Manager Kai Crawshaw said: “Despite research showing that at least 80% of dogs and 70% of cats are likely to develop periodontal disease by the age of three¹, dental care is still too often neglected. National Dental Pet Health Month is a perfect opportunity to remind clients of the simple steps they can take to protect their pets’ oral health.
Animalcare recently launched its Plaqtiv+® home dental care range. Featuring patented Xpersiv™ technology, the Plaqtiv+® range captures minerals and inhibits biofilm maturation to reduce the formation of calculus – a key contributor to periodontal disease.
Practices can order their Dental Waiting Room Pack at www.animalcare.co.uk/dentalmonth. Those wishing to enter the contest are asked to email a photo of their waiting room during February to firstname.lastname@example.org.
