TORONTO, ON (PRWEB) January 25, 2017
Hill’s Pet Nutrition Canada Inc. is teaming up with a world-renowned speaker and leading authority in veterinary periodontology for an innovative continuing education (CE) murder mystery event. The program will run from 6 – 10 p.m. on Thursday, January 26, at the Rosewater Supper Club, 19 Toronto St., Toronto.
Brook Niemiec, DVM, FAVD, DAVDC, DEVDC, will help lead this groundbreaking event, which will feature alternating entertainment and educational sessions. Members of the Elysium Entertainment company will act out a spy-themed murder mystery, and Dr. Niemiec will present exciting new developments for managing pet oral health while highlighting the benefits of Hill’s® Prescription Diet® t/d® pet food. He will also introduce the new Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Dental Care Chews dog treats.
“Hill’s is committed to continuing education,” said Robert Van Delst, DVM, National Customer Development Manager for Hill’s Canada. “This edu-tainment event is designed to help veterinarians help their clients ‘pull the trigger’ on periodontal disease.”
Guests at the CE event will help solve a mystery while learning about the risks and perils of periodontal disease. They will also be encouraged to uncover practical tips and tricks for solving dental cases and improving patient outcomes by communicating, educating and presenting information to their dentistry clients.
“Continuing education is extremely important, but it can also be fun,” Dr. Van Delst said. “This event combines outstanding food and drink, spy-themed fun, murderous intrigue and the best in veterinary dental education. We hope this event paves the way for even more innovation in how CE courses are approached in the veterinary world.”
Hill’s® Prescription Diet® t/d® food has undergone extensive research (more than 280 studies in dogs and more than 150 studies in cats) demonstrating effectiveness in the control of plaque, tartar, stain and gingivitis. Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Dental Care Chews dog treats are a wonderful complement to Hill’s® Prescription Diet® t/d® pet food and most other dog foods. Both Hill’s® Prescription Diet® t/d® pet food and Hill’s® Prescription Diet® Dental Care Chews dog treats have been awarded the Veterinary Oral Health Council, or VOHC, Seal of Acceptance to help control plaque and tartar.
