To mark National Dental Pet Health Month in February, Animalcare is on the look-out for a Dental Month Superstar Practice. 

The company is launching a contest to see how creatively practices can use a Dental Waiting Room Pack it has 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 rotect 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 [email protected].  Full terms and conditions are on the Animalcare website.
