Pet Smile Month is the largest veterinary led Pet Health Campaign in the world.
Our aim is to increase the awareness of the importance of dental disease and the harm that it does to our pets. Then to move on and to encourage better dental care (both treatment and prevention) and thus to improve the health and well being of our pets.
Pet Smile Month is the brainchild of Bob Partridge, a Veterinary Surgeon based in Harrogate in North Yorkshire. Bob has been interested in veterinary dentistry for many years (he was one of the founding members of the British Veterinary Dental Association) and he sees both first opinion and referral dental cases at OakBeck Veterinary Hospital, the practice he established in Harrogate. PSM
We are always trying to improve Pet Smile Month. 2009 sees the launch of the PSM OnLine Store where you can purchase dental hygiene products and other items.
In addition the Pet Smile Club (where you can create a Pet's Diary and create automatic reminders for vaccinations, worming and flea treatments) continues to grow. We are also launching the new Pet Smile Month Dental Technician qualification for members of the veterinary practice staff.
If you have any comments or suggestions about Pet Smile Month we'd be delighted to hear from you.
