Idea Exchange: Get at-home dental care started with a kit

Mar 01, 2011
By staff

Every owner who brings in his or her dog or cat for a dental cleaning receives a mug filled with a toothbrush, toothpaste, a dental diet sample (Prescription Diet t/d—Hills Pet Nutrition), and handouts on tooth brushing, Oravet (Merial), and Greenies (The Nutro Company). We also throw in a pen that has our clinic's name and phone number on it. At discharge, we encourage at-home care and give clients their dental starter kit, which they love.
