Petco has teamed up with The Nutro Co., the Nashville, Tenn.-based makers of Greenies brand dental treats, to educate pet owners on good oral health for their dogs and cats. Together, they are hosting the Greenies Pet Oral Health Event this weekend at Petco stores across the United States.
The event will emphasize the importance of regular professional oral care by a veterinarian and at-home preventive care. Almost 160 million pets in the U.S. do not receive any oral care, according to Greenies. Approximately 75 percent of pets three years and older show signs of periodontal disease, the brand added.
In addition to information on proper pet oral care, attendees will receive product coupons redeemable at Petco.
The Greenies Pet Oral Health event is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 13, 2010, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 14, 2010, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Petco stores nationwide. For more information, visit http://www.petco.com/petco_Page_PC_greeniesoral.aspx.
