How many pets are getting adequate dental care at your practice?

15% say 41-60%

5% say 61-80%

2% say 81-100%

*The dvm360 Clinical Updates: Dental Care study was sent by email to subscribers of dvm360 magazine, Vetted and Firstline. The survey generated 736 responses, creating a margin of error of about 3 percentage points (although sample sizes-and statistical reliability-on individual questions may be considerably lower). Respondents were able to download dvm360.com's top dental care handouts.
