Dental Care for Dog Teeth

Q: How can needy pets get important dental care?

A: When we help spread the word about the Veterinary Oral Health Council.

Several other dog bloggers have blogged about the American Animal Hospital Association's Helping Pets Fund, and their initiative to help fund oral care services for pets in need. This fund makes a wide range of veterinary services available for pets whose owners have either abandoned them or do not have the financial means to pay for treatment options. GREENIES’® donations will help to provide life-saving oral surgeries for dogs and cats in need.

There is still time to help and it involves no financial contribution from you.

Just help spread the word about the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC). The VOHC is similar in nature to the American Dental Association (ADA) but is applied to pet products. Through stringent clinical research and review, the VOHC determines which products on the market are effective on the breakdown of plaque and tartar. The VOHC Seal of Acceptance indicates that the product has met or exceeded the pre-set VOHC standards of efficacy. This seal is an easy way for pet owners to discern how to shop for their pets and provide them with the best in at-home dental care products.

Here's how you can help spread the word:

* For every blog post written about VOHC, the GREENIES® Brand will donate $25 to the AAHA Helping Pet’s Fund.

* For every use of #VOHC on Twitter (either through an original post or a re-tweet), The GREENIES® Brand will donate $1 to the AAHA Helping Pet’s Fund.

* For every new “like” of the GREENIES® Facebook fan page from February 17—March 14, The GREENIES® Brand will donate $1 to the AAHA Helping Pet’s Fund.
