January is the month of `Pets Dental Care`
Promoting dental health can improve overall health - this is the reason that the veterinarians in Canada are encouraged to remind clients that `Pets Need Dental Care, Too` this month. The 11th-annual publicity campaign prompts practitioners to suggest regular dental appointment for pets, as well as dental homecare routines.

`As part of this nationwide public-awareness effort, healthcare teams will discover how rewarding and fun it can be to implement a pet dental program in their clinic,` says Ken Capron, DVM, immediate past president of the American Veterinary Dental College. `By increasing dental compliance and providing greater dental care, not only do the patients benefit, but so does the veterinary practice.`

About 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. Oral disease begins with a buildup of bacteria in a pet`s mouth resulting in plaque and tarter, which can lead to periodontitis if teeth are not cleaned on a regular basis. The infection caused by periodontal disease often enters the bloodstream, potentially infecting the heart, liver and kidneys.

Studies report that clinics participating actively in National Pet Dental Health Month enjoy a 70-percent rise in dental revenue throughout the year, according to Hill`s Pet Nutrition.

The American Veterinary Medical Association, American Veterinary Dental Society, Academy of Veterinary Dentistry, American Dental College and Hill`s Pet Nutrition sponsor the campaign.
