The Pet's Need Dental Care, Too campaign fosters dental health for pets by encouraging pet owners to work with their veterinary health care teams to schedule regular dental appointments for their pets and establish an at-home dental care routine.

"Oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets and ensuring proper oral care requires a yearlong commitment from pet owners," said Janet Donlin, D.V.M., Chief of Veterinary Business Channel at Hill's. "Through an at home regimen of daily maintenance owners can help ensure a better quality of life for their canine and feline companions."

Emerging science is showing that the mouth is a window into the health of the human body which can show signs of nutritional deficiencies or general infection. For example, systemic diseases -- those that affect the entire body -- may first become apparent as a part of periodontal disease.(1) To address this, the American Dental Association recommends adult men and women brush twice a day, eat balanced meals and schedule routine dental visits for professional cleanings and oral exams. This protocol for a healthy mouth doesn't simply apply to humans. Many pet owners don't realize the steps dental health maintenance should also be applied to their canine and feline companions, and effective plaque control can prevent a large percentage of pet periodontitis cases.
