June has been designated Dental Care Month and hopes to benefit thousands of dogs by raising awareness among owners of canine oral health issues. Pet food brand Pedigree is supporting Dental Care Month and encouraging dog owners to take advantage of free oral care check-ups at participating vets this month, where owners will receive advice on establishing a healthy oral care routine and a free sample of functional treat DentaStix.
Dental care is a major issue for dog owners, yet 90 per cent of owners believe their dog’s teeth are good or perfect even though 80 per cent of dogs over the age of three show signs of gum disease, one of the most common problems in adult dogs.
