Did you know that 4 out of 5 dogs over the age of three have gum disease?
That's why during the month of July, we encourage dog owners to get to their local vet and have their dogs checked for periodontal disease. There are hundreds of vets around New Zealand who have generously donated their time to provide free checks. And to make it even easier for you, you can quickly locate a vet in your local area by clicking below.
PEDIGREE® DentaStix® can reduce tartar build-up by up to 80% when fed daily, which can help reduce the risk of periodontal disease. Their special texture, unique x shape, and clinically tested active ingredients help keep your dog's teeth and gums healthy and strong.
DentaStix® come in three different sizes - for small, medium and large dogs. They are an easy way to keep your dog's dental health in check, and each time you feed your dog a DentaStix®, you can see how much they enjoy them.
Affecting 4 out of 5 dogs, periodontal disease is one of the biggest issues facing dogs in New Zealand. Dogs use their teeth for so much more than just eating. It can affect dogs of all ages, but becomes more prevalent as dogs get older.
There is something you can do to help prevent your dog from experiencing periodontal disease.
PEDIGREE® DentaStix® are working with vets across New Zealand and are proud to support Doggie Dental Month. It is a chance to highlight the issues that dogs in New Zealand face. We are committed to working with veterinary experts to help produce products that keep your four-legged friend healthy.
Participating vets will be listed at www.doggiedentures.co.nz/find-a-vet.aspx from June 1st 2013.
