“Veterinarians always talk to clients about maintaining the dental health of their furry friends, especially in February during National Pet Dental Health Month. The problem is, the need for dental insurance is rarely part of that conversation,” says Petplan Veterinary Advisory Board member Dr. Ernie Ward. “Petplan’s Healthy Kisses Campaign is the perfect opportunity for both veterinarians and pet parents to start a dialogue. Having pet health insurance that covers dental injuries and illness can make a huge difference in a patient’s life — and on their owner’s wallet.”
“Dental health is too important to the overall wellbeing of your pet to ignore,” says Elyse Cannon, Petplan’s Veterinary Manager. “That’s why Petplan took great care in ensuring comprehensive coverage for dental injuries and disease when designing our policy. Many pet parents don’t realize how critical taking care of your pet’s teeth is, but good oral health can add two to five years to a pet’s life.”
