Royal Canin has launched a dental learning tool to demonstrate the recommended method for sectioning and extracting teeth in cats and dogs.

The 3D model, developed by Mars Petcare in conjunction with veterinary dentist John Robinson, includes pre-sectioned teeth that indicate how tooth crowns should be divided and where to cut the crown to achieve single root pieces.

Accurate models

Royal Canin’s veterinary marketing manager Marianne Lomberg said: “These high-quality and accurate models will be a valuable addition to the education resources available to veterinary schools and professionals – ultimately helping contribute to a higher standard of dental care available to cats and dogs.”

Dental models are available free for practices ordering £300 or more of selected Royal Canin diets.

Orders of £300 will receive one free model and orders of £500 will receive two free models.
