Zacks Equity Research

Henry Schein Animal Health, the U.S. animal health division of Henry Schein, Inc. (HSIC), declared its participation in the 2013 Veterinary Dental Forum (:VDF), to be held in New Orleans. VDF is one of the most awaited events of the animal health industry in the U.S.

At the VDF, Henry Schein Animal Health plans to showcase the new Henry Schein TDC Dual Action, a patented blend of esterified oils that are easily absorbed into the gingival tissues. The product is expected to enhance the benefits of teeth cleaning and improve gum health. Experts from the company will be present at the Forum to demonstrate its usage to veterinarians.

Henry Schein Animal Health is one of the main sponsors of the VDF, having been closely associated with veterinary dentistry for the last three decades. The event gives an opportunity to 1000 animal health practitioners to participate in several educational sessions, technical updates and case study presentations delivered by top experts. Additionally, veterinarians can also acquaint themselves with the latest advancements in veterinary dentistry. As a prime sponsor, the company is contributing supplies for all 25 laboratory sessions to be held at the event.
The VDF serves as an appropriate platform for professionals who are keen to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge about new and innovative veterinary dental techniques. Training sessions are to be held to educate professionals regarding competent use of new equipment in the highly potential field of animal dentistry.

The program acts as a conglomeration of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, students and potential buyers. Henry Schein Animal Health intends to display its latest range of dental equipment, instrumentation, endodontic and periodontal products at the event.

The animal health unit of HSIC also plans to introduce new Henry Schein Veterinary Endodontic Products, apart from its line of high-quality dentistry instruments from Veterinary Instrumentation. Recently, it introduced the first veterinary orthopedic instrument catalog that will serve as a comprehensive tool for veterinary practitioners. The catalog contains information about the latest technological solutions and gives an overview of value-added services provided by the company.

Animal health practitioners planning to attend VDF can also partake in lucrative equipment financing deals from Henry Schein Financial Services.
