Mars Petcare have announced two free-to-watch webinars to support veterinary experts in treating common dental issues in both cats and dogs.  

The series, which is supported by four experts in veterinary dental health, looks in more detail at some of the most important issues dental specialists are seeing in pets.

The first webinar in the series, which is going live on Tuesday 3rd November at 20:00, looks at the impact periodontal disease has on both cats and dogs. Covering clinical treatment of the disease and a deeper look into the disease process.

Co-speaker and veterinary dental specialist, Jens Ruhnau DVM, DEVDC discusses the importance of understanding and treating periodontal disease:

“Research has shown that over 80% of dogs over the age of three, and the majority of cats, are impacted by periodontal disease. Treating the disease early and correctly is key to reducing further spread, secondary infection, and ultimately improving the quality of life of the animal”

The second webinar in the series, which will be live on Tuesday 10th November at 20:00, shares advice on treating tooth fractures in pets. Looking at tips on how to perform an effective oral examination, along with reviewing recent studies on the fracture limits of teeth in pet dogs.

Co-speaker and founder of DentalVets, Norman Johnston goes on to say: “Tooth fractures are very common in both cats and dogs, and can be caused by a variety of reasons. Looking in more detail at the diagnostic process, treatments options and being aware of what objects can cause damage will help veterinary experts, and in-turn owners, understand more about the risk of fractures.”

Both webinars are free to attend, to find out more information and to register click here.
