Go on, admit it. Your pet smiles when it’s happy. And who doesn’t love a smiling pet? It’s almost like you have small, happy person in a dog suit. Or a cat suit. [Insert your chosen pet here]. So why not celebrate that smile by participating in PVMA’s Smiling Pet Contest in honor of February being Pet Dental Health Month?It’s easy! Simply email a photo of your pet flashing its pearly whites, and your photo will be added to our online gallery of smiling pets. Your photo will include your first name, your pet’s name, and your location, that’s all. So no worries about your personal information getting out. Photos will be accepted until February 28. After that date, we in the PVMA headquarters will choose our favorite two photos to win. The first place winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card, and second place will receive a $25 Visa gift card.
Get started right now. It doesn’t matter where you live or what sort of a pet you have. Email your photo to PVMA here, and it will be added to the gallery. Want to see who’s already in the running? Visit our online gallery now.
Why a smiling pet contest?
Most people don’t realize that oral health is an issue for pets, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Brushing your pet’s teeth might sound silly but imagine what would happen if you didn’t brush yours. Periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition in cats and dogs even though it’s completely preventable. Want to learn more about pet dental health? The AVMA has video, podcasts, and other materials to help educate you.
