Team Up With GREENIES And The American Animal Hospital Association!

In celebration of National Pet Dental Health Month, (that's this month, folks!) GREENIES Brand pet dental treats is partnering with the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA)  to support their Helping Pets Fund, a charitable organization that provides financial support for sick or injured pets that are in need of veterinary care. This fund makes a wide range of veterinary services available for pets whose owners have either abandoned them or do not have the financial means to pay for treatment options. The GREENIES donations *(see exciting details below) "will help to provide life-saving oral surgeries for dogs and cats in need."

Here's the scoop: There's an organization called the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) that's administered by the American Veterinary Dental College. The VOHC is similar to the American Dental Association, but applied to pet products. According to a fact sheet about the VOHC, this organization determines which products on the market are effective on the breakdown of plaque and tartar through stringent clinical research and review, and awards their "seal of acceptance" to these select products. Many veterinarians and pet parents rely on this seal of approval when recommending dental treats  or purchasing pet dental products for their beloved pets.
Now, it just so happens that several varieties of GREENIES Brand dental treats have received that VOHC seal of acceptance for the reduction of both plaque and tartar, and the GREENIES Brand would like to promote both pet oral health and highlight the role that this important organization plays in the scientific study of our pets' dental health.  So, here are the...

*Exciting Details: For every post written written about the VOHC, the GREENIES Brand will donate $25 to the AAHA's Helping Pets Fund.  And...for every use of the #VOHC hashtag on Twitter, either through an original post or re-tweet, the GREENIES Brand will donate $1 to the AAHA's Helping Pet's Fund.  And each post will receive public recognition on the GREENIES Facebook page. What a fun way to raise money for pets in need and promote pet oral health at the same time! And you thought that cold, dreary February was only for eating vast amounts of chocolate and counting the number of roses you receive-ha!

So let's get to work and write those posts! And while you're at it, give your friends a call and ask them to help spread the good word, too-that's what I'm going to do right now.

P.S. I've included the links to all of these companies and organizations so you can check them out for yourself before you write your post. As always, we're grateful for your support.

I know that greenies have had a bit of controversy -- but Jake and Just Harry will not let us leave the house without giving them each a greenie treat. They are nuts about them.

Greenies is Eva's favourite!!! I brush Eva's teeth once a week, I don't think she likes it but she lets me do it as she loves the taste of the toothpaste :)
