It’s funny how the same clients who brush and floss daily never think twice about their pets’ teeth. It’s a common disconnect that often requires lots of explanation—which is why this visual exam room tool is such a timesaver.

Using hundreds of images and illustrated charts, Healthy Mouth, Healthy Pet shows clients precisely why high-quality dental care is needed for pets, and the benefits it provides. With it, you can tailor the presentation to your client using multiple formats:  a sturdy, wire-o-bound book; client handouts printed from an accompanying CD-ROM; or a convenient PDF available for use on exam room computers (sold separately). Topics covered include
home care, periodontal disease and other common diseases, plus step-by-step discussion of treatments. Seeing is believing, and their pets will be better off for it.
