An award-winning southside vet has appeared on a major new BBC TWO programme on animal health.

Ross Allan, a partner in The Pets’n’Vets Family network of veterinary practices, recommends that daily brushing and an annual scale and polish is the best way to ensure canine dental health.

The programme, ‘Trust Me I’m A Vet’ which aired for the first time last week followed Ross’s involvement in a major UK study into canine dental health.

Allan, the 2017 BSAVA Melton Award winner for contributions to small animal practice, predicts that the results of this study will change the way that veterinary practices manage canine dental healthcare.

The findings of the study has prompted the veterinary organisation to launch the Tooth Furry Dental Club – an entirely new way of tackling and preventing dental disease in pets – offering a range of services and resources, including free dental check-ups for all pets and free post dental care packs.

Pets’n’Vets Family partner Oliver Jackson said that the results of this study will change forever how veterinary practices manage canine dental healthcare.”
