[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, this is Dr. Kevin Lynch. I've been a veterinarian for 35 years. And I'd like to tell you folks about an exciting new development in the pet health industry. It's called the Vet Tech Dental Care System by Silver Tails. Did you know that over 85% of the pets in this country have significant dental disease by three years of age? That's an incredible number of pets that are suffering from dental infections and tooth loss. These infections have also been linked to liver, heart, and kidney problems in pets as well. Just like people, pets need to keep their teeth and mouth clean. Well, with my friend Jack here, I hopefully will be able to show you how we can do this simply and painlessly at home, so that you can avoid costly dental care in veterinary hospitals that involve anesthesia and more invasive dental care. Up to this point in time, the only thing we've had to offer people is the use of a tooth brush at home. A tooth brush is meant for human mouths, not pet mouths. It consists of bristles that poke and irritate the dog's gum and teeth. And after two or three times of attempting to use it, most people say, doc, I can't do it. Now, we have the Silver Tail system. It consists of an ergonomically designed handle and a microfiber absorbable head that is the cleaning portion of the system. When we dip it into the solution that's included with the kit, the cleaning solution can now be applied to the enamel in a circular motion, so that the bacteria and food film are actually removed from the mouth. And that's unique to this system. A toothbrush just moves the dental debris around, and this system allows you to actually polish and remove it. And this is the neat part about it. It's also very hygienic. When you're done, you simply eject the head. And the food debris and the bacteria are removed. And you don't even have to touch the cleaning head. We then do attach a polishing head to the handle. And in the same motion, we can now go back in with the denser microfiber and polish the enamel, so that it's closed and the pores within the enamel do not allow for the reattachment of bacteria and food filled debris again. And again, it's hygienic. You eject the head. The Vet Tech System is unique. It's not messy. It's pain free for the pet. It's user friendly. I think you'll like it. I know Jack does. Take care, folks. [MUSIC PLAYING]
