Doggies Get Digital Dentures

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 17:21 GMT

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’ve ever wondered what your dog would look like in dentures, it’s time to feed your curiosity.

To celebrate Pet Dental Health Month, PEDIGREE Dentastix – daily oral care treats for dogs – is running the “Denture Your Dog Contest” on dogsrule.com/oralcare.

Now through April 30, people can upload a photo of their pooch and “denturize” it by adding a toothy grin, words, and a voice.

The best denture-donning dog will be featured as an ad in People magazine.

The denture adventure, launched by Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford, is meant to remind pet owners to actively care for their canine’s canines on a daily basis.

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, four out of five dogs over the age of three already have some level of gum disease, so a preventive approach to doggy oral care is key.
